Absolutely. I've been roughly following it's progress since it was announced. The first design was deemed too "Miami," NIMBYs don't like the height or design, and half the people hate the new design. But nonetheless, it will transform Canal and N Rampart St, which is in need of investment.

I'm in favor. Most people I know who are against it either; don't live in the city or have ties to the Vieux Carre Comission. Not to go off topic, but I'm anxious to see South Market get off the ground.

The proposal goes back to the City Planning Commission today. Hopefully it is approved.

South Market will be phenomenal district. Can't wait to move to New Orleans.

The developer to be fair, has promised many buildings that have failed to materialize.

I'm a HUGE HUGE preservationist....and this should be given the go ahead. The VCORPA (whatever its called) needs to take care of the quarter and the run down buildings there...because the quarter is not in good shape. That area on Canal the developer wants to build on, is blighted, dead and run down.

Although there is no reason for this development to fizzle other than the attendance of New Orleans' rather embarrassing City Planning Commission.

The previous poster is right though in that Kailas proposes a lot of things that lead to nothing. He's been around long enough to know what a pain in the a getting projects approved in New Orleans is. Something tells me his financing wasn't quite as rock solid as he claimed it to be.
