The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (MCCNO) Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is progressing. Immersive interventions are under consideration, including the addition of a third level with flexible, multi-purpose space that has a view of the Mississippi River.
The CIP has already delivered a 7.5-acre pedestrian park, the renovation of all thirty-five sets of the facility's restrooms, installation of New Orleans neighbourhood-themed charging stations, the upgrade to all new energy efficient LED exhibit hall lighting, internal infrastructure improvements such as an informational technology overhaul, and physical plant renovations including four new chillers, two new cooling towers, 6 boilers, and a new systems monitoring station.
„It is encouraging to see our vision coming to life.“
The Convention Center is projected to begin the $40 million roof replacement project in Q3 2022. "It is encouraging to see our vision coming to life", said Exhibition Hall Authority president, Jerry Reyes. "These improvements and enhanced amenities will be beneficial for visitors and residents alike and make New Orleans more competitive in the national event and meeting marketplace."
