Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, together with developers Carpenter & Company Inc. and Woodward Interests, LLC, will open a luxury hotel and Private Residences in downtown New Orleans in late 2020. The property is owned by Two Canal Owner LLC, in which both developers are partners.
The first Four Seasons in New Orleans, the property will debut in the heart of the city as Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans.
Within the World Trade Center, the new Four Seasons will be located next to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, financial center, French Quarter, and Warehouse District, with clear views of both the city and the Mississippi River.
“New Orleans has been a priority market for us for many years and we have been waiting for the right opportunity to make our debut in this dynamic city,” says John Davison, President and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
“We are in a strong position to enter the market with our exceptional partners at Carpenter & Company, in the best location in the city, and by offering an unmatched level of service that only Four Seasons can deliver. The new Hotel and Private Residences will be a truly standout property in the city, and in our global portfolio,” he added.
“We are incredibly excited for the upcoming opening of our new project in New Orleans, one that will see the transformation of the historic World Trade Center into the best lifestyle experience in the city,” says Richard L. Friedman, President and CEO, Carpenter & Company Inc.
Following extensive renovations, the World Trade Center will be refreshed with a new podium and public spaces, as well as the 341-room Hotel and 92 Private Residences on the top floors of the building. The Hotel will also encompass meeting and event spaces, four food and drink outlets, retail spaces, spa facilities, and a rooftop pool. Both public and private spaces will be filled with natural light with most featuring views of the adjacent Mississippi River.
