The Crescent City Residences
here are a few more renderings of the exterior and the link to their website. Any increase in height of the building will be because of the addition of the spire rather than additional floors.

Churchill Technology and Business Park

Jefferson Parish officials envision a bright future for the $4.6-million Churchill Technology and Business Park, which they believe will ignite a West Bank development explosion. It’s in a perfect spot — close to the (Tournament Players Club) Golf Course, the KB (Home)-Shaw (Group) housing development and Northrop Grumman.” New Orleans firm Hebert/Smolkin Associates estimates the park will create 6,923 jobs, $286.9 million in wages and average annual pay of $41,441 during the first five years of operation.

RiverSphere

RiverSphere is a Tulane University place for art, science, and technology, about rivers, for river communities, on the New Orleans Mississippi riverfront.
RiverSphere’s central unifying theme is the Mississippi and other great rivers, considered and analyzed from all angles, from the scholarly to the popular.

At RiverSphere, scientists will work side-by-side with artists; historians will interact with anthropologists. Visitors will chat with researchers; schoolchildren will attend seminars; and musicians and dancers will perform on stages. Visitors to RiverSphere will experience action, interaction, diversity, circulation, participation, and transformation. RiverSphere, in essence, is much like the river.

RiverSphere is slated for an eight-acre site on the banks of the Mississippi River in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana, USA (90o West, 30o North). The site is located about one mile upriver from the French Quarter and 1-2 miles from Tulane University’s downtown and uptown campuses, respectively.

Textron to expand N.O. presence

NEW ORLEANS - Textron Marine & Land Systems, a Providence, R.I.-based
manufacturer of military vehicles, is relocating administrative and executive offices from 19401 Chef Menteur Highway to 13801 Old Gentilly Road.

The company needs more space to expand, said J. O. Smith, vice president of operations. The Chef Menteur site is not closing, Smith said.
Roughly 150 people will move into the Old Gentilly Road building known as the
Enterprise Center part of New Orleans Regional Business Park. Textron is retrofitting the space, which needs furnishings, carpeting, ceiling tiles and other enhancements.

The company manufactures armored security vehicles for the Army and
amphibious hovercraft for the Navy. Textron employs about 1,200 people in the New Orleans and Slidell area.

Chevron moving New Orleans HQ to north suburban Covington

NEW ORLEANS — Chevron is relocating its Gulf of Mexico Business Unit from the CBD to the suburban North Shore. Plans call for construction of a new office building in North Park Business Center in Covington and to move 500 New Orleans employees as early as summer 2007.

“This location is a result of the company’s decision to remain in the greater
New Orleans area rather than consolidate outside the state,” said Carmichael. This decision positions the company for near and long-term sustained operations in the Gulf of Mexico.”

He said Chevron looked at numerous alternatives, which included consolidating Lafayette and New Orleans locations somewhere out of state. He said a seven-month study determined it was best to remain close to Gulf operations and retain the Lafayette location.

Chevron is under contract for 20 acres in the North Park Business
Center in Covington, which is near the residences of about half the New Orleans office employees, according to Carmichael.

Demo of hotel clears way for massive new Harrahs Resort

*****VIDEO BELOW*****

The Grand Casino Biloxi said goodbye to the 12 story Island View Hotel Sunday Morning.

Cherry Demolition out of Houston, Texas worked for three weeks to prepare what took seconds to take down. The implosion took place about 6:40 am Sunday.

400 pounds of dynamite were strategically placed in the pilings to make this implosion go off without a hitch.

The Island View Hotel was just East of where the Grand Casino barge used to float and south of Highway 90. The grand opening was April 15, 1995.

Demolition of Grand Casino Hotel in Biloxi clears way for new construction
The $1 billion construction that is planned for the site by its new owner, Harrah's, shows faith that Biloxi is a great casino resort, he said.

It is projected to take at least a couple of years to recreate a full resort casino on the site, but Harrah's plans to have a casino fully operating this year in a building that was part of the complex on the north side of U.S. 90.

By Greg Thomas
Real estate writer

A large Florida affordable-housing developer is proposing a $60 million project to convert the long-dormant National American Bank building in the heart of the Central Business District -- a national landmark completed in 1929 -- into 202 affordable apartments.

Reliance has a contract to purchase the 23-story Gothic-like building for $14.4 million from a partnership doing business as 200 Carondelet LLC.

Louisiana's Number 1 tourist destination

National Jazz Center

Sweeping downtown revitalization plan unveiled
10:50 a.m., Tuesday

By Rebecca Mowbray
Business writer TP

In a sweeping downtown revitalization plan being unveiled this morning, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans Hotel and the New Orleans Shopping Center will be turned into a modern 20-acre multi-use National Jazz Center and park buttressed by public office buildings.

The $715 million project, spearheaded by Strategic Hotels & Resorts, the Chicago-based owner of the Hyatt, is the first major redevelopment project announced since Hurricane Katrina. Developers say the project would generate construction jobs, taxes and tourism and change the face of the city the way that Millennium Park has transformed Chicago, the Inner Harbor has revitalized Baltimore and the Guggenheim Museum has put Bilbao, Spain, on the international map.
