I was just thinking that when you combine the area from canal place all the way to the market street power plant there will be an amazing amount of atttractions there when complete... convention center district, market street power plant, warehouse district, harrahs master plan, four seasons and and new ferry terminal... will be awesome when done

Yes, thank you, that's the graphic I was referring to. That makes sense, I kinda figured it may have been from some old Master Plan doc or something instead of RFP . I guess the idea has always been to at least coordinate with Tulane/Mardi Gras World/ Port of NO on their vision for this whole area.

Speaking of which, I think the entertainment venue makes sense given the location of Buku Fest. It could accommodate the festival without competing with or completely taking it away from Mardi Gras World. I think it could also accommodate certain after-hours convention functions that include live entertainment.

Good god, I hope they don't do a Cordish development. The last thing we need is NEW ORLEANS LIVE! the same canned faux-urban development that every second-tier US city has.

Unfortunately the convention center is dead-set on an entertainment district for conventioneers instead of a bold, modern neighborhood that could actually deliver more housing and a great quality of life.

Agreed, but then there's part of me that also hopes that this could actually pull away some of the more congested and commercialized tourist/conventioneer-focused draws of the French Quarter, CBD, and Bywater and maybe contain some of it to a single, more appropriate area like this one. But who am I kidding, it would probably only exacerbate the issue city-wide.

I think that would be killer for this development. Is there a link somewhere to the full RFP?

Depends on who they partner with. (With whom they partner?) Ballpark Village in St. Louis is a partnership between Cordish and the Cardinals. Excepting phase 1, which is a glorified bar/entertainment space, phase 2 is high-rise office, residential, and hotel along with other amenities. KC is approaching a 3rd residential high-rise in their Cordish development. Agree that Cordish isn't ideal but their developments can be pretty good if properly guided.

Yes to an Alamo Drafthouse. A full service theater is much needed in the city.

Port NOLA chief says volume is booming, except for goods hit by China trade spat

https://www.nola.com/news/business/a...69a839282.html


The Port of New Orleans' chief executive, Brandy Christian, said Wednesday that volume at the port is booming this year, with the exception of goods hit by the Trump Administration's ongoing trade spat with China.

In an annual "state of the port" address to IFFCBANO, an organization that represents many of the port's users, she said that container volume was up 12% in the year ended June 30, at just under 620,000 twenty-foot-equivalent units (TEU), driven largely by imports.


The port has set out a master plan to develop into one of the country's largest trade gateways. That includes the potential to develop an additional container terminal, possibly in St. Bernard Parish, after it signed a deal with Ports America to explore the option.

The plans also include a possible new cruise ship terminal, as well as cooperating with the new owners of the old Avondale shipyard in Jefferson Parish, who are planning a "logistics hub" there that is expected to employ 2,000.
...

The railroad acquisition was forecast to show revenue rising by 4.1% in 2019, to $30 million, making it the second-largest of Port Nola's four main business lines.

The cruise ship business is also surging ahead, Christian said, with passenger movements to and from cruise ships forecast to rise from 1.2 million in fiscal year 2019 to 1.4 million next year, which would be an increase of 128% from 2010.

Cruise ship revenue was forecast to rise 8.7% in fiscal 2019, to $14.4 million.

Took a gander at the updated plans for bar/apartments at Nick’s Place through Tennis’s blog.

Something feels weird that they would draw so much attention to rebuilding an old bar to the point of building a rather good looking apartment building on top. But nothing about the bar strikes me as particularly interesting or unique. Seems like they’re putting a lot of expectations on that bar being a big draw.

I wonder if the bar is worth the hype or why even focus the development on it?
