THE HOWARD HUGHES CORPORATION ANNOUNCES
REDEVELOPMENT OF RIVERWALK MARKETPLACE INTO UPSCALE OUTLET CENTER
First Upscale Downtown Outlet a Key Component of New Orleans Retail Revitalization

NEW ORLEANS (July 26, 2012) - The Howard Hughes Corporation (NYSE:HHC) is pleased to announce plans for the redevelopment of Riverwalk Marketplace into an upscale outlet center - The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk.

"The Howard Hughes Corporation is pleased to officially announce our plans to create The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk," said Mark Bulmash, Senior Vice President of Development for The Howard Hughes Corporation. "Our leadership team is committed to being a part of New Orleans' continued revitalization and look forward to bringing a dynamic new concept to this vibrant, charismatic city."

"New Orleans residents have made it clear they need retail," said Mayor Mitch Landrieu. "This planned redevelopment proposes a new tenant mix that will restore Riverwalk as a favorite place to shop for tourists and locals alike and is another step in making New Orleans a regional shopping destination."

Planning to invest approximately $70 million into the transformation of the unique retail venue, The Howard Hughes Corporation will expand its footprint by about 50,000 square feet to an approximate total of 250,000 square feet. The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk will showcase top national retailers with established outlet stores as well as some local retail, dining and entertainment options. Along with being the nation's first outlet center located in a downtown setting, many of the retail establishments will be the first location in Louisiana, New Orleans and the Gulf region for their respective brands. A market that has long been under-served in the retail sector, New Orleans has approximately 30% less square feet of retail per capita than the national average, an important issue among city leaders. Additionally, the mall has not been updated in any significant way by previous owners since its grand opening in 1986, making this a much-needed revitalization.

Rod Miller, President and CEO of the New Orleans Business Alliance added, "This investment by the Howard Hughes Corporation further underscores the opportunity and viability of the New Orleans market. The New Orleans Business Alliance is passionate about improving the city's retail landscape and believes this project has potential to be catalytic in anchoring the Canal shopping district. We will continue to work with Howard Hughes and the City to see this project and others like it to completion."

"The Howard Hughes Corporation's investment in The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk is important to not only District C, but also to the entire city," said Councilmember Kristin Gisleson Palmer. "The property's strategic location and easy access for residents both on the East Bank and West Bank represents a great opportunity for long-term improvement to New Orleans retail and continued development along the riverfront. I am thrilled to partner with The Hughes Corporation to bring this exciting project to our city and proudly look forward to the many more great things to come."

Construction will begin later in 2012, and the property is expected to reopen in late 2013. Information about The Howard Hughes Corporation can be found at visit http://www.howardhughes.com/.
