Convention Center District Development

Ernest N. Morial New Orleans Exhibition Hall Authority to Apply for Zoning Changes for Convention Center District

Posted on Tags: , ,

The Ernest N. Morial New Orleans Exhibition Hall Authority (ENMNOEHA), the governing board of the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, is applying for zoning changes for its proposed $1 Billion public/private development, known as the Convention Center District Development Project or the Trade District.

A community meeting was held yesterday, September 13, to discuss the proposed zoning changes on select Authority properties.

The Convention Center facility currently has a different zoning designation on either side of the Pontchartrain Expressway with different building height requirements. The Exhibition Hall Authority informed the community about the proposed new Convention Center Height Overlay District, which would allow consistent height regulations for the entire Convention Center facility and its surrounding properties.
