New-build shopping center construction was plodding in 2015. Chain Store Age’s annual development survey showcases some notable projects by developers that continue to push the envelope in terms of amenities, strategic redevelopment and creative leasing strategies. Our friends at Stirling Properties were among the top 11 largest retail developers in the country in 2015! DDG has a long standing relationship with Stirling Properties, and our civil engineering group has played a significant role in these projects including the one highlighted in the article – Fremaux Town Center in Slidell, LA. Congratulations to our friends at Stirling Properties!!
