Aldi Purchases 3 Acres Near Amazon Fulfillment Center at Cortana

March 8, 2024 – Baton Rouge, LA – Will Chadwick, Partner – Retail Sales & Leasing, is thrilled to announce the sale of a 3-acre lot adjacent to the Amazon Fulfillment Center at the former Cortana Mall site to the supermarket giant, ALDI.

This strategic purchase underscores a trend of new development for ALDI in the Baton Rouge market. They join a wave of recent investments in the vicinity, which includes land sold to Starbucks for a new location, expansion efforts by Raising Cane’s, a new Whitewater Express car wash, and Northern Tool’s opening of their only Baton Rouge location.

Notably, the new ALDI site is directly adjacent to a 40,000 sqft space formerly occupied by Big Lots, which is currently available for lease. There are also several commercial lots available for sale surrounding the Amazon Fulfillment Center.

Chadwick expressed his enthusiasm about the ongoing developments: “The intersection of Airline Hwy and Florida Blvd has been one of the most trafficked intersections in Baton Rouge for decades. The resurgence of this area and new retailers breaking ground proves the viability of the submarket. The influx of diverse retail options is not only a benefit to local consumers but also a significant indicator of economic growth and investment. We are excited to see what business will join the movement by occupying the former Big Lots.”
