Since this is such a large on-going project, I felt that it needed its own thread. Ironically, no news has surfaced about the Federal City project in Algiers since that thread was created, so hopefully I'm not jinxing this...

After several recent reports about the uncertainty of the future of the hospital complex (1, 2, 3, 4), Governor Jindal confirmed the state's commitment to this project. Though there is still much work to be done before we see any signs of construction, the governor unequivocally asserted that the state is throwing its weight behind this project.

Some area residents have sparked debate over the location of the proposed LSU-VA Hospital. Though only mentioned in a caption, it seems that Victory Real Estate has offered to sell its Mid-City property (site of the former Lindy Boggs Medical Center) to the government, which could quickly begin redeveloping that property as the new LSU-VA Hospital.

The state and the city have already stated that they only support a combined LSU/VA hospital at Tulane Ave. and that no other options are on the table. I suspect groundbreaking early next year after the land is acquired.

The project site of the hospital should be near the Tulane and Perdido. This could make the hospital more accessible to the two places.
