Really now? Wasn't it at 15-18 floors? Are they pushing for 20+ and will it be more narrow?
I picked the perfect time to move to the city. I wanna live downtown now.

I wish that would build some highrise condos along the river, especially around the old wharves. I like some of the new development in Treme'

Do you have any idea what the redevelopment of the Riverwalk entails?

Algiers housing project wins preliminary bond approval | NOLA.com

Developers who want to build a 324-unit rental housing complex with a parking garage and 10,000 square feet of retail space received preliminary approval for bonds in an amount not to exceed $60 million from the Industrial Development Board today. The proposed complex would take shape on a 14-acre tract near Federal City in Algiers.

The IDB is the public body that considers requests for tax breaks and bond financing for development projects in New Orleans. Preliminary approval allows the developers to begin shopping the bonds to investors. But the project would need final approval from the Industrial Development Board and the approval of the State Bond Commission before it would move forward to the construction phase.

U/K/I Development LLC of Washington, D.C. and J.S. Karlton Inc. of Aventura, Fla., together doing business as Algiers Crossing, would like to build the housing site at the corner of Brookline Avenue and Slidell Street. The apartments would be mixed-income units, a majority of which would be rented at market rate.


Good or bad for Algiers?

General Electric chooses New Orleans for 300-job tech office | NOLA.com

Appliance giant General Electric plans to open a corporate office in New Orleans that will provide software development and information technology support to the company's financial services arm, GE officials, along with state, regional and local leaders, said Friday. The GE Technology Center, a part of GE Capital, will result in about 300 jobs in computer engineering, software development and other information technology-related fields that pay annual salaries of between $60,000 and $100,000.

GE chose New Orleans over about one dozen other cities, including finalist Indianapolis.
"We were not without people who wanted us to locate this technology center in their city and state," said Brackett Denniston, senior vice president and general counsel of GE. "This place is what's best in America. We saw it in this competition."
Good to see and hear.

INSANE: State Bond Commission OK’s Subsidies For Low-Income Housing In New Orleans CBD

Just when they were FINALLY getting rid of the Iberville Housing Projects, which constitute the worst utilization of prime real estate in North America and represented perhaps the worst of FDR’s New Deal federal abuses (to think that Storyville, which by now would likely be considered one of the coolest historical districts had it survived the wrath of the feds, was razed for a housing project ought to make for a retrospective blood-boiling), we once again have stupid government policy effectively depressing the economic development of downtown New Orleans.
WWL had the story on its six o’clock broadcast tonight…
The city is prohibited from discriminating against housing projects?
I don't think it would do bad for the area but certainly not what is needed or expected of the area.

Forgive me for not knowing this already, but can anyone tell me if the plan to put a Bass Pro Shop in the old Market Street power plant ever started to pan out? Or did it fall apart? It seems like I remember there being alot of discussion about it last spring.
