Newer Older

Construction on this $11 billion project, the largest privately financed development in the United States, began in June of 2006 (at the same time New Orleans was trying simply to rebuild following Hurricane Katrina....) In spite of safety and construction troubles, labor issues, financial woes and more, much of the project opened in 2009, with several of the buildings achieving LEED certified status. However, the Harmon Hotel may be imploded due to faulty construction.
