On Tuesday, March 16, a selection committee from the City of New Orleans shortlisted three finalists to vie for the ability to redevelop the former Six Flags/Jazzland site in New Orleans East. The City put out a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) in December 2020, which closed on Feb. 23, 2021.
The City of New Orleans evaluated each of the respondents based on their qualifications, experience and demonstrated track record of success at master developing similar complex, multi-phased real estate development projects. The overarching goals of the redevelopment, as set forth in the RFQ, are to partner with a qualified master development team to create a coherent master plan for the site that brings blighted property back to commerce and that creates jobs and amenities for the citizens of New Orleans.
