The Ernest N. Morial Convention Center Exhibition Hall Authority will hold a virtual public meeting to allow two development teams to present proposals for a 39-acre mixed-use development along the New Orleans Riverfront.

The developer teams were challenged to design a “mixed-use development that will lead to a vibrant neighborhood, serve as an economic driver for the State of Louisiana and City of New Orleans, and develop a compelling value proposition that will attract visitors and uses to the site.”
