A City Without Seasons Will Soon Have Four
Working in a joint venture with AECOM Tishman, Woodward Design+Build was selected to transform the former World Trade Center building at the foot of Canal into a Four Seasons Hotel & Residences. The design team collaborated to create a dynamic concept for this historic redevelopment, and will continue to work together throughout the duration of the project to achieve a successful final design. Plans for what is expected to be one of the finest hotels in the city include 336 guest rooms, 80 condominiums, a signature restaurant, 28,000 square feet of meeting space, a Four Seasons spa and fitness center, and a roof-top pool and deck. The facility will also accommodate an observation deck in the two-story rooftop cupola, and a museum on the 2nd floor with a dedicated entrance. The musuem exhibit, “New Orleans: History at the Confluence of Cultures,” will be curated by lauded Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and Lawrence Powell.
