The environment around the Convention Center offers the opportunity to generate new value by creating authentic and memorable New Orleans experiences.
Manning Architects and Eskew+Dumez+Ripple (MA/EDR), a joint venture, worked to propose a vision plan for the areas connected to the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. The areas surrounding the Convention Center offer the opportunity to generate new value by creating an authentic and memorable New Orleans experience. The six-mile stretch situated along the Mississippi River will feature three distinct environments: a linear park, a waterfront experience, and an extension of the existing urban fabric.
As an undisputed leader of planning and visioning, Manning has established New Orleans and the Convention Center area as a national leader in the competitive market of tourism. The vision plan includes added amenities adjacent to the Convention Center, making New Orleans a choice destination for large traveling conferences, tournaments, and trade shows. In the development of this vision plan, Manning recognized the importance of true collaboration in working closely with the owner to address all requirements and seamlessly overcome any potential obstacles.
