Project Overview

The vast scope of the Hyatt Regency New Orleans project presented a complex set of unique issues. The building had been sitting idle for over five years after being damaged quite extensively during Hurricane Katrina. Other challenges included the fact that the building is over a million square feet in size and was reorienting its entrance from one side of the building to the opposite side, while adding over 115,000 sf of ancillary space. Overall, the project required a very comprehensive set of evaluations of the real estate, the programming, personal property and the physical property itself.
