KTBS previews the Camp Forbing Market Place in Shreveport
December 4, 2014
The Camp Forbing Market Place will be a grocery anchored center with additional retail businesses. The center will be located at the corner of Ellerbe and Flournoy Lucas Roads, on land once part of the YMCA’s Camp Forbing. NewQuest’s marketing information said there are more than 28,000 people who live in a 3 mile radius of the proposed site with the median house hold income of more than $64,000 a year. According a map made by New Quest, there are not many shopping options within a three mile radius of the site plan. The center’s proximity to major roadways like Highway 3132 and Bert Kouns will make it accessible for more Shreveport residents beyond the immediate neighborhoods.
