^I agree. I really like the overall design.

It will all look fantastic when construction is completed.

A bad nightshot of some three story town houses going up in downtown Covington. These townhouses are becoming extremely popular in downtown Covington, and there are many going up that are in the five or six story range.

^Yep. I went through Covington last night and took some pictures. Alot of them came out somewhat nice, but since I didn't have a tripod many of them came out to dark.

I was testing the flash on the picture above, I had it on medium exposure.

I've never used the flash on mine. Course I almosat never used it on my old digital camera either. Guess I'm just not a flash man. :D

Another new condo building in downtown New Orleans, though this one is on the smaller scale.

The Harrah's Casino New Orleans Hotel is coming along quite nicely, and construction should be finished soon. :D

^No problem, Rod.

Here is a bad shot of the parking lot on Poydras St. that the Trump Tower New Orleans will be built on.

The condo conversion in Covington....was that building once a hote, or was it a bank or other commercial building?

What development are you refering to, Tom?

^Colonial Condominiums is actually located in downtown New Orleans. It's a completely new building, as it is being built on what used to be a street level parking lot about 1/4 of a mile southeast of City Park.

^I live in Saint Tammany Parish, in the city of Covington. The pre-Katrina population of Covington was around 9000, and some population projections have Covington with a population upwards of 40,000-50,000 people by 2010! :w00t: Though the traffic hear is absolutel horrible, and this can be said for the entire Parish, which has around 300,000 people in it right now.

I agree with the airport idea. A major airport in Tangipahoa Parish, maybe near Hammond, or something like that would be great for both Greater New Orleans and Greater Baton Rouge.

Hey NCB, I have family who live in the Amite/Independence area and I was wondering how much has that areas population increased.

Really? I head over to Independence every year for the Italian Festival, I'm not Italian, but I just love the Festival itself. :lol:

But anyway, I don't know the specific population increases for Amite of Independence because I am not as familiar with Tangipahoa Parish as I am with Saint Tammany, but I can tell you that Tangipahoa Parish has gained nearly 50,000 residents since Katrina, and the parish is expected to retain nearly 40,000 of these new residents permanently. Though I can't give you exact numbers, I can guarantee you that both Independence and Amite have grown since Katrina, probably much faster than the cities have grown for quite some time. :thumbsup:

^This is fantastic news!

The mega-studio would be just east of Robert, close to where I live in Covington,LA. If built as planned, we will see an amazing amount of movies produced and filmed in SE Louisiana in the near future! :D

Good news. I wouldn't mind seeing this region of the country having a bigger say in the movie industry.

That's impressive stuff in Covington. I wonder what the total population is in the Mandeville/Covington area combined ?

They now have what they call "micro-politan" area's. The USA Today had a good article on that almost a year ago. Western St.Tammany area should qualify !
