Designed by Edward Durell Stone in 1964, the World Trade Center building is on the National Historic Register and is a prime example of New Formalism. The existing building is being restored and incorporated into the Four Seasons New Orleans Hotel & Residences.
The project consists of a 350 key luxury hotel, restaurants, ballrooms, a pool deck overlooking the Mississippi River, spa services, exhibit space, 76 residential units and a parking garage. The top floors of the 33-story building will include an observation deck with panoramic views of downtown New Orleans and the Mississippi River.
The design team is comprised of Cambridge Seven Associates, Woodward Design + Build, and Trapolin Peer Architects. TPA’s role includes the rehabilitation of the historic facade, historic interior elements, as well as facilitating the historic tax credit process.
