Push the BBQ’s aside.

Tailgating is getting cramped.

For the first time, Who Dat tailgaters are contending with phase one of the 200 million dollar South Market District CBD revitalization project .

Saints fans were pushed off the lot where construction is now underway at S. Rampart St and Girod St.

Going up are 600 apartments plus four square blocks of restaurant and retail space.

Tailgaters are worried development in the cbd will push them … all the way out.

Phase one of the two phase project will be finished late next year.

Phase two of construction will eventually happen further away from tailgating.
