The landscape of our city is changing before our eyes.  Post-Katrina New Orleans is catching up on 30 or 40 years of neglected infrastructure projects all at once.  If you haven’t driven down Canal Street or Tulane Avenue near Galvez lately, you’re in for a treat.

The $2 billion worth of hospitals are coming out of the ground, literally transforming that shady part of town.  It’s a sight to see.  67 acres next to downtown, about to become a major economic engine for our city.  But thats just half of the story.  Just yesterday the Mayor of New Orleans, along with the Mayor of Kenner, and other dignitaries, unveiled the plans for the brand new terminal at Louis Armstrong International airport.  The designs, by a world famous airport architect, are breathtaking, finally delivering New Orleans an airport we can all be proud of.  But more importantly, providing travelers with a first class experience and impression of our city.  The new hospitals along with the new Louis Armstrong international will help propel out city into the next few decades and beyond.  The future looks bright for New Orleans as the landscape of our city changes right before our eyes.
