The developers, architects, and builders of the Four Seasons New Orleans were pleased to receive recognition on May 10, 2022 at the Louisiana Landmarks Society’s Awards for Excellence in Historic Preservation. This program honors projects completed in Orleans Parish in 2020 and 2021 representing outstanding examples of restoration or rehabilitation of historic buildings, or new construction.

The International Trade Mart building was designed by Edward Durell Stone in 1964 to serve as the hub of international trade for the Port of New Orleans. The remarkable restoration of the iconic building included introducing new materials and techniques to create the luxury hotel and residences, ballrooms, and public attractions that include a rooftop exhibit in the former revolving lounge that celebrates Louisiana’s cultural heritage, a panoramic observation deck, extensive landscaped paths and gardens, and dining venues. The World Trade Center was named to Louisiana Landmarks Society’s 2013 List of Nine Most Endangered Sites, making this impressive transformation even more poignant.
