THE UPPER PONTALBA on Jackson Square launches website featuring leasing, shopping, and historical information

The Upper Pontalba on Jackson Square, home to both residential and commercial tenants, now has a comprehensive website, highlighting everything from retail shop hours to work order forms for residents. The website includes a timeline of the 1849 building's origins, with information about New Orleans and the Pontalba family history, leading up to how this grand architectural feat was conceived and accomplished.

As a public benefit corporation of the City of New Orleans, as well as a beloved property by both daily dwellers and curious locals and travelers, "The time had come for us to have an online presence, for both practical and promotional reasons," said Upper Pontalba manager, Darrin Duplissey. "We are thrilled to have a site that showcases the uniqueness of the building and all that it has to offer, as well as giving our residential and commercial tenants an easier way to communicate with management."

The Shops at the Upper Pontalba, located in the historic Pontalba Building on Jackson Square, are managed by The French Market Corporation. They include upscale boutique shops featuring local artwork, clothing, jewelry, and culinary delights. Dining options on each corner allow visitors to rest and watch the daily parade of life in the heart of the French Quarter. Across the street, the French Market District begins with Washington Artillery Park and Café du Monde, and stretches for six more blocks on the riverside, down to the Farmers and Flea Markets.

Recently, The Shops at the Upper Pontalba began a series of free Bon Operatit! on the Balcony concerts, which will resume again for the holiday season this Friday, October 26, at 5 p.m. The Shops at the Upper Pontalba were official sponsors this year of The Tennessee Williams Festival's Stella and Stanley Shouting Contest, which has been held at the site for 16 years. These and other events year-round benefit from the ideal location and performance-friendly architecture of the Upper Pontalba building. "The first balcony concert we did featured an opening ‘performance' by the bells of St. Louis Cathedral," commented Duplissey.
