The Show Must Go on: Trump Tower in New Orleans Will Still Be Built

November 01, 2005 |

Trump Tower Hotel, New Orleans, will be built despite Hurricane Katrina, and it will be the tallest building in New Orleans when completed. The project, first announced in the spring, will be one of the first new high-rises constructed in the city in more than 25 years and could reach 750 feet, or 70 stories. As planned, it will house condominiums, a hotel, a five-star restaurant, and retail space, and could cost as much as $200 million, according to its designer, Adache Group Architects Inc., Fort Lauderdale, Fla. A general contractor has not been named.
