Living Retail

Great places to visit rarely become places you want to live. But that is precisely what distinguishes a retail district created by The Cordish Company: people really want to be part of their entertainment districts. It's not just a place for the occasional shopping trip - it's a dynamic, synergistic setting where retail, entertainment, work and play all come together.

Multi-faceted, multi-dimensional and multi-purposeful – landmark creations such as Missouri’s Kansas City Power & Light District and Louisville, KY Fourth Street Live! District showcases how Cordish retail developments embody the mind, spirit and energy of the markets they serve.

On the cusp of celebrating its centennial anniversary, The Cordish Company has built a legacy of revitalized urban centers and one-of-a-kind entertainment destination concepts. Key to the success of every property is the commitment and philosophy of the company’s fourth-generation family management team. Builders at heart, the grandson and great-grandsons of founder Louis Cordish remain dedicated to the integrity, work ethic and passion that birthed the company in 1910. Most notably, The Cordish Company maintains long-term commitments with its properties and has retained ownership interest in the vast majority of projects it has developed. Its retail and entertainment portfolio spans more than 40 million sq. ft. of premiere developments, and the pipeline for future opportunities is robust, including a number of mixed-use projects anchored by sports venues, such as Daytona Live! in Daytona, Florida; Ballpark Village in St. Louis; Philly Live! in Philadelphia; and Woodbine Live! in Toronto, Canada.
