In 2017, Four Seasons Residences received approval to begin the renovations of the formerly unoccupied World Trade Center New Orleans to bring their luxury brand to one of the most popular vacation cities in the United States as part of an initiative to revitalize New Orleans.
These efforts have been set forth to continue the regrowth of the city following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. This $530 million conversion experienced delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the brand has pressed forward with an anticipated opening timeframe of spring 2021. Local officials have high hopes that the opening of Four Seasons New Orleans will boost the struggling hospitality industry and provide great opportunities for the city.
From the 19th to the 33rd floor, this resort offers 81 one-, two-, and three-bedroom condominiums, as well as a handful of extravagant Penthouses for Four Seasons Residence Club members. Owners will be able to access their floor through private elevators, which provide them with a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. As with other Four Seasons resorts, these suites will likely feature many of the same amenities such as spacious living and dining areas, multiple bathrooms, chef-style kitchens, and luxurious finishes. The most notable feature in these units, however, is focused on what is outside of the building. Not only do the expansive windows bring in tons of natural light, but they also include unmatched views of the Mississippi River and New Orleans’ most iconic districts.
Four Seasons New Orleans will offer its guests the convenience of its downtown location without giving up any of the amenities typically found on multi-acre resorts. Guests will be able to utilize a lobby bar, a ground floor restaurant, a 5th-floor restaurant, a ballroom, an event space in the two-story cupola, spas, an observation deck, a penthouse cocktail lounge, and a 70-foot lap pool and wooden deck terrace that will have bar access and private cabanas available. All of these areas are to be meticulously decorated and reflect the spirit of this unforgettable Louisiana city.
With its prime placement on Canal Street overlooking the Mississippi, the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans provides its guests all of the best activities the city has to offer. Not only is the resort surrounded by a number of great local restaurants, bars, lounges, and shops, there’s even more to do and see. It’s right next store to the Audubon Aquarium, down the street from Woldenberg Park, walking distance to Lafayette Square, and less than a 10-minute drive to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. No matter which direction someone decides to walk, bike, run, or drive, they’ll never too far away from some of the biggest attractions available in New Orleans.
