Business Beckons

Downtown is the business capital of the region; the center of law, banking, and government. On any given day, our 2.8 million square feet of office space is home to1685 businesses and more than 14,000 employees in a 120 block area. Our high rise towers and more intimate buildings house everything from executive suites to small one-person offices to private dinner clubs to banks and barber shops.

Our ample inventory of historic buildings and Louisiana’s attractive Historic Tax Credit entice developers intent on creating everything from residential to retail. Smaller buildings throughout downtown have been already been rehabbed into single family residences, art galleries, office spaces, movie theaters, gift shops, nightclubs and restaurants. We’ll help you find a building, determine a use and assist you in making your dreams come true.

If you are a business looking to move, expand or start up, we can help. We offer a wide variety of services, from low-interest loans and façade grants, to assistance in navigating regulatory questions to advice on locations, buildings, and business ideas. We often will have valuable insight into your project and will be happy to share our information with you. As helpful as sharing ideas on what to do, we can warn you how to avoid problems to save you both time and money.

We have a number of ways we can assist and incentivize your business goals.
