In September, the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center released an RFQ for master developers interested in redeveloping a twenty acre tract of land on the riverfront next to the Convention Center.
The project calls for the redevelopment of the site into a mixed-use entertainment district, which would sit directly adjacent to the newly proposed 1,200-room, $557 million Omni Hotel.
Yesterday, the Convention Center released the names of the interested developers. Those chosen for further interviews include the Domain Companies, Atomic Entertainment, a joint venture between Woodward, Leventhal, and Carpenter & Company, and a joint venture between Provident Realty Advisors, McDonnel Construction Services and Provident Resources Group, and River Park Neighborhood Investors.
Atomic Entertainment is run by Adam Rosenfelt, a developer and movie producer. His signature project is the $100 million mixed-use revitalization of Pullman Yards in Atlanta.
New Orleans-based Domain Companies are the developers of the $500 million South Market District in New Orleans, along with a host of projects in New York, Salt Lake, and around the country.
Louis Lauricella is behind River Park Neighborhood Investors. Lauricella was responsible for developing most of Elmwood, and still owns the Elmwood Center. He also developed the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Dallas-based Provident Realty Advisors, led by Leon Backes, has done several projects in New Orleans. Their signature project is Preston Hollow Village, a large mixed-use development in Dallas.
The Woodward/Carpenter group is the developer of the $350 million Four Seasons Hotel. Carpenter has done large developments around the country.
