Kenner Real Estate Analysis



Kenner is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of Louisiana. With a population of 66,975 people and 19 constituent neighborhoods, Kenner is the seventh largest community in Louisiana.

Kenner real estate is some of the most expensive in Louisiana, although Kenner house values don’t compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Kenner is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Kenner is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Kenner who work in office and administrative support (14.10%), sales jobs (13.19%) and management occupations (7.12%).



Originally inhabited by the Tchoupitoulas Indians,[4] the area along the Mississippi River was the first land in the New Orleans Metropolitan Area on which Europeans set foot. René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle landed there in 1682. In 1855, Kenner was founded by Minor Kenner on land that consisted of three plantation properties that had been purchased by the Kenner family. At the time, all land north of what is now Airline Highway was swampland.

In Kenner on May 10, 1870, “Gypsy” Jem Mace defeated Tom Allen for the heavyweight championship of the bare-knuckle boxing era; a monument marks the spot near the river end of Williams Boulevard.

During 1915–1931 a New Orleans streetcar line operated between New Orleans and Kenner. The line ran between the intersection of Rampartand Canal in New Orleans and the intersection of Williams Blvd and Jefferson Hwy in Kenner.

In 1960, Kenner had a population of 17,037.

Kenner’s growth began in the late 1950s when developers began subdividing, draining and filling the swampland in the northern half of the city. During the 1960s, the construction of Interstate 10 and improvements to Veterans Memorial Highway aided the rapid development of Kenner as a suburb of New Orleans.

By 1979, Kenner’s population was 60,524 making it the 6th largest city in the state.

In 1982, Pan Am Flight 759 crashed in a residential area of Kenner when a microburst forced it down.[5] 8 people on the ground were killed, as were all 145 people on the aircraft. Six houses were completely destroyed and five more substantially damaged.
