St. Bernard Port, Harbor and Terminal District has two additional properties that are not part of our terminal network. We purchased 1,000 acres of waterfront property located in Yscloskey located along the banks of the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO). Now that the MRGO has been closed to shipping, the property is likely to be developed as a recreational waterfront community with a marina.
The second property owned by the Port is a small tract on Paris Road and Bayou Bienvenue. This parcel once served as the home to the Port’s firefighting boat the Mr. Jake. It has since been redeveloped as a marina and nightclub prior to Hurricane Katrina and now serves as an equipment yard for a heavy equipment contractor.
