River Ridge Multi-Family | Jefferson Parish | Susan Gray 504-261-9338
River Ridge is an area of Jefferson Parish and a suburb of New Orleans.The land that is now River Ridge was developed by French colonists and their descendants in the late 18th and early 19th centuries for large sugar plantations; these lined the Mississippi in traditional French long-lot fashion. In the early 20th century, an interurban transit line was constructed through this area. Aided by funding under the GI bill, when enabled veterans to buy houses, large-scale suburban development began in the early 1950s. By 1965 virtually all of the area along the Mississippi River between Harahan and Kenner was developed.To eliminate confusion and create some sense of community identity, the area between Kenner, Harahan, Metairie, and the Mississippi River was officially renamed as "River Ridge" in 1974. As a community that blossomed during the 1960s and 1970s, homes here are representative of that era, with a combination of ranch styles, cottages and single-family homes on large lots. As the years progressed, River Ridge has also become a place to find large, open-floor-plan, multi-bedroom homes on estate-sized lots. Potential homeowners will also find restored mansions and a general patchwork of styles from grand to modest, traditional to contemporary. Condominium developments can also be found here.
