NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans City Council has approved plans for a new shopping center.

The Magnolia Marketplace will be a two-level mall where most of the stores will face an elevated, open-air parking deck.

Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell urged the council on Thursday removed many of the restrictions on the project's design recommended by the City Planning Commission but opposed by the developers, Tara Hernandez and Stirling Properties.

Developers hope to begin construction by June, with opening scheduled for late 2014.

Designs presented recently by the developers show six stores -- T.J. Maxx, Shoe Carnival, Ulta beauty products, PetSmart, Michaels and Ross Dress for Less -- on the second level of the new center. The ground level is to have two unidentified stores, including a 42,500-square-foot space for an anchor tenant.
