New York Architect to remake New Orleans World Trade Center Tower into hotel and lofts 

New Orleans is still suffering the wounds of Hurricane Katrina. But today’s news that the Edward Durrel Stone designed World Trade Center in that city is to be remade into a hotel and lofts is welcoming. New York developer Full Spectrum and Frederic Schwartz Architects (FSA) bested four other architect developer teams to win the right to redevelop the 770,000 sf 33-storey riverfront building. As currently envisioned, the building will house 250 residences and a 130-room Renaissance Club Sport Hotel by Marriott. The project, which is located on the Mississippi River in the historic heart of the City, will also involve development of an international cultural museum and the conversion of Spanish Plaza into a public entertainment zone. The building will be energy efficient and use sustainable materials. FSA will serve as lead architect and be joined in the venture by Studio Jack Travis Architects and the Rockwell Group, both of Manhattan
