A $5 million “green hotel” in Central City is being proposed by a New Orleans developer, according to Nola.com.
The New Orleans Green Hotel is designed to target millennials conscious of the environment. The site, 1500 Robert C. Blakes Sr. Drive, is currently a vacant warehouse.
Gerard Bourgeois Jr., is one of the developers on the project. Plans call for a four-story, 42-room hotel with solar panels, water efficient laundry facilities, energy efficient aspects, and environmentally friendly paint.
The developers will need a conditional use to construct the hotel.
