That was my first thought as well. Even if they didn't want to build a full street (which probably would be difficult anyway with the offramp), a pedestrian/bike "greenway" cutting through the parking lot and at least block C would make the area much more attractive. It looks like they may have already considered breaking up the parcel west of Tchoupitoulas with an extension of Henderson and a new street connecting Euterpe and Melpomene which would improve the walkability tremendously.

I'm curious about the "proposed entertainment venue." That seems too small to be something like Topgolf. I keep hoping for something like a Cirque du Soleil to diversify the city's tourism offerings. Seems like they have something in mind though.

Doesn't see like they are very focused on riverfront development. I always thought that should be a key part of the overall plan. A large riverfront park/amphitheater/festival grounds would go a long way towards making the area a destination which will be the big challenge
