HOUSTON, June 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC) today announced the sale of The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk®, an approximately 264,000-square-foot urban outlet center in New Orleans, to Rockstep Riverwalk, LLC for $34 million.
The sale brings the total net proceeds from HHC's non-core asset dispositions to $578 million and marks the sale of the last remaining non-core asset located outside of the company's core communities. The net proceeds from HHC's non-core asset sales continue to be reinvested back into new developments and used to repurchase shares as part of the company's stock buyback program. This sale essentially completes the company's transformation plan to streamline its business and focus on the growth of its core assets—a portfolio of large-scale master planned communities that is the largest of its kind in the country.
