New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center - Vision Plan

New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center - Vision Plan

Six miles of immersion into New Orleans culture
Manning Architects and Eskew+Dumez+Ripple (MA/EDR), a joint venture, developed the vision plan for the sixty-acre site surrounding the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. These areas offer the opportunity to generate new value by creating an authentic and memorable New Orleans experience for visitors and residents. The six-mile stretch situated along the Mississippi River features three distinct environments: a linear park, a waterfront experience, and an extension of the existing urban fabric through a new mixed-use neighborhood.

The New Orleans Morial Convention Center is a national leader in the competitive trade show and convention industry, and New Orleans is a tourism leader. The vision plan capitalizes on this synergy, amplifying the strengths of the convention center in the cultural setting of the city. The plan adds amenities that make New Orleans a choice destination for large traveling conferences, tournaments, and trade shows.
