  1. Six Flags in New Orleans East to become a world-renowned Sports Park
  2. I do believe that the major anchors are going to be Lowes, Target , JC Pennys or Dillards, and a Super Market (most likely Rouses). Chase bank has already broken ground on their new bank which is located in the town center. I believe that the reps of the town center are going to announce the rest of the anchors in 2008. As a resident of NOE I really appreciate that fact that you would go out of your way to shop in NOE. If you read the forums on NOLA , you'll see the negative comments that are posted about NOE and various neighborhood throughout the city. I know that NOE is going to come back stronger and better, we just need the support from the residents of NewOrleans and Beyond. Here's more on the town center; http://www.neworleanscitybusiness.com/upto...rer=dailyUpdate
  3. JPK, that's exactly what I'm saying, and also I don't want CWL and Jackie on the council together....we would be stuck with CWL either way we vote. Some possible canidates for her seat are Nolan Marshall and Troy Henry of Henry Consulting;
  4. I drive by that site everyday, and it's coming along smoothly. I can't wait either, because I'm tired of driving to metairie every week. If CWL wins the council at large seat , then New Orleans would get a new council person who would help meake that area a much better place.
  5. I found a wonderful story in the New York Times about New Orleans East ..... scroll down and take look at the video to your left; http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/02/us/natio...nyt&emc=rss
  6. This is really good for the New Orleans Medical Industry, hopefully this would attract Doctors from around the world.
  7. The race card agrivates me the most, if the charges would've been dropped against a white person, Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would've been in New Orleans before you can say Gumbo. It would have been equally upsetting to me. This city need to wake up and realize , until we all come together as a city Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Arab, etc...... we will never grow and we will be stuck in the same corrupt polotical system.
  8. As much as I want a hospital in New Orleans East , I don't want it to be a public hospital ( I don't like to crowd it attracts) It would be nice to see Methodist and Lakeland redeveloped, Methodist was my hospital and I liked the way it was privately owned. Alot of those corrupt poloticians live in the mansions in New Orleans East i.e copeland my neighbor. I wish we can get rid of both of the cynthias on the council especially Lewis , that lady annoy's me as far as biggie , that's up to gentilly residents.
  9. Well, the Plaza Tower deal is dead due to disagreements with investors; http://blog.nola.com/tpmoney/2007/07/plaza...ld_at_auct.html I just hope that Trump Tower, Tracage, and Krauss developments are built. In response to the hospitals in the east I heard that Methodist Hospital suppose to reopen and/or expand. As for Six Flags some investor is trying to buy it and turn it into a water park , but six flags is waiting on their insurance company. I find it funny that I live in the same neighborhood as the president of New Orleans East Business Association , and I never bother to ask him about this . I have to start talking to him more often.
  10. I've been looking for something related to the Town Center for the longest. Thank you so much for finding this, It would be nice to see a Whole Foods and Macys as their other Anchors. New Orleans East is coming back .... I pray that those slumlords apartments could be torn down. There's a Town Center in the woodlands , tx that's really nice , and I wish we could have the same tenants as they do ; http://town-center.com/
  11. Very well said, Derrick( if it's ok for me to call you that) alot of people growing up in the inner city think that they can't break that cycle of poverty, it is all they know. I wish I was Mayor of this city , because first off before you tell people what they should and should'nt do you have to educate them. Back to the main point if I was Mayor of New Orleans I would have career high schools, a high school for Business, Medicine, Culinary Arts, Cosmotology, and a school of Design. If we implement this plan the kids living in the inner-city would have something to look forward to.
  12. I'm guessing that this is the development where the Four Seasons and Tiffany & Co supposed to be.
  13. I saw that too, maninly younger people which are better for this city. Some may think that I'm crazy ,but in a couple of years I envision New Orleans a s a younger, wealthier, and diverser city. Trust me it can happen.
  14. For the sake of New Orleans Ray Nagin just needs to step down. I know some of you support him ,but this is not the same Ray from pre-katrina. He has racially divided the city even more than before katrina. It just hurts my heart that after a big castrophe like katrina we still can't get our s*it together. I teach my kids that racism isn't allowed in my house, but I don't have that problem , because they know we may be a different color, but they are just like us. Hopefully, this project isn't all the way dead.
  15. That's so sad that a group of people would have hate towards blacks because what ONE has done all of us aren't criminals so, it's basically jus ignorance. Whites commit crime too, alot of white men are sexual predators , but you don't see me and alot of others having prejudice towards them. One thing that I have learned is to treat everyone the same don't judge people , because the person who you are judging could be the one that saves your life. I know that black professionals flee the city, but there aren't none that I know of that become criminals . I accept your apology.
  16. If that message was directed towards me I'm not a traidor , but I tell you what I will not live in a city were everything is in shambles . I've been helping rebuild New Orleans East before Katrina. People are leaving New Orleans ,because they've had enough with the polotics. Katrina didn't run alot of our residents away our poloticians did. I would'nt be suprised if polotics plays a role in thsi development. As for being lazy if I was so lazy I would have never gone to MedSchool for 8 1/2 years and becoming a successful Doctor and a graet Father and Husband. Slidellwx I get what you're saying I'll give it time.
  17. Another hurdle for New Orleans East, nevver mind that the city of New Orleans. If this project does not go through, I hate to be a BI**CH ,but my wife and our kids will be heading off to Atlanta. Every time I get excited about something three months late there's a couple of hurdles facing a project; http://blog.nola.com/times-picayune/2007/0...s_worry_no.html
  18. Some great news! this comes to show you that New Orleans is still a major in conventions; http://www.sbcbaptistpress.org/BPnews.asp?ID=25856
  19. Wow! another blow for the state of Louisiana not New Orleans , but the state as a whole. Sometimes I really want to bail out on New Orleans my heart is telling me to stay here ,but my mind is telling me to get the hell out. I'm really tired of the polotical bulls**t that is occuring in this state . People are saying oh everything is getting better Education, Jobs , Crime and the reast of the crap that goes along with it , but the fact of the matter is it's not getting any better the situation in this state cannot be sugarcoated. We can't put the balme on anyone , but ourselves Louisiana has hurt itself , it's always a black and white thing in louisiana and until we come together as ONE and fight crime and corruption the state will be up sh*t creek. In a way I place a little partial blame on myself with the Education situation , because I never went to any school board meeting or protested that our schools be taken care of . My kids didn't attend public school so, I would just ignore the problems that our schools had . I was being selfish, because I can afford to send my kids to wonderful schools and live in a wonderful neighboorhood ,but one thing that I forgot was that everyone didn't have those same privilages I forgot that those kids that are in a horrible public school system were my kids (not biological) and that they deserve to be in a system that's not broken. Louisiana only has one time to get it right ONE , and if the state dosen't get it right this time I'm afraid I will not be apart of the rebuilding process and alot of people will not be apart of it. We aren't just rebuilding New Orleans we are rebuilding the whole state of Louisiana . Back to the main subject of jefferson 235 is too much time for one person to serve, the feds should split those years amongst some of Louisiana's most infamous poloticans you guys know who they are.
  20. I have a feeling that there's going to be too many condos in the city. What developers really need to be doing is breaking ground on some hotels in the city , tourism is rebounding rapidly. Has anyone heard any news on the hotel that suppose to be next door to Saks? I thought that it was going to be a Four Seasons/St Regis Hotel, and there was going to be a Tiffany&Co located within the hotel.
  21. My prayers are with his family. On another subject Kobe Bryant wants to get traded from the Lakers , and I just had a dream that he would get traded to the Hornets. If this happens New Orleans won't have to worry about the Hornets leaving, because once you hear that Kope is going to be a Hornet , season tickets would be sould out. The hornets would have such a large fanbase because he is a star. I think the reason why some people don't support the team is beacuse we really don't have any starts on the team , and we don't win many games. Just a dream how do you guys feel about this?
  22. The Jazz Park would have been broken ground if it wasn't for the owners of the Dominion Tower playing dumb a** games with the city. If the jazz park can get built ,and the superdome gets refurbised (in&out) New Orleans would be looking at a Suberbowl in 2012. Also, I believe once Trump starts building you'll see developers putting their money on anything that they can get it on.
  23. I am all for this project, but what seems to amaze me is that something that can be an economic engine for the city you have people denoucing it . Just read all of the comments on the nola forum some which are very racist. I realize why it's taking so long for the city to come back,because we have alot of dumb a$$ racist, but I'm not going to go there. Anyway I hope that this project gets built and we all come together as a city.
  24. This company would just be right New Orleans East Town Square.
