NEW ORLEANS, LA – The Four Seasons Hotel will be moving into the former New Orleans World Trade Center that closed due to damages from Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The plans are to completely renovate the WTC into a world-class Four Season Hotel with 350 rooms, 76 hotel-serviced private homes along with apartments on the top four floors mainly for hotel staff.
The former Top of the Mart restaurant will be renovated into a two story observation deck for residents and guests.
The New Orleans selection committee chose Carpenter/Woodward to oversee the redevelopment of the WTC building.
The project is anticipated to cost around $364 million and is estimated to bring over $400 million in tax revenue each year for the city of New Orleans.
The WTC building was built in 1967 with 33 floors at a height of 407 feet (124 m). The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 9, 2014.
