Long Beach eyesore to become shopping center

A long time Long Beach eyesore is being transformed.

The old Senior Citizens Center on Jeff Davis Avenue, which sat virtually untouched after Katrina, is being given new life as a shopping center.

Two businesses, including a sushi restaurant and a children's boutique, are set to open shop.

Danielle Thomas talked with the developer about why his company, New Orleans-based De La Tour Holdings, who has other commercial investments in Long Beach and Pass Christian, chose to invest on the MS Gulf Coast.
