New Orleans East deserves a development that will support local commerce, generate permanent, high-paying jobs, and strengthen the community. Locally owned Henry Consulting and TKTMJ, Inc. have partnered with global master developer Hillwood, A Perot Company, of Dallas, Texas, in response to the City of New Orleans’ Request for Qualifications for the redevelopment of the Jazzland / Six Flags site in New Orleans East. The team is a finalist. In a virtual meeting On April 21, 2021 for the top 3 finalists, the team presented a compilation of qualifications, and an all-inclusive, master development community plan, Bayou Phoenix. In a virtual public meeting on May 11, 2021, the committee selected Bayou Phoenix as one of two developers to participate in a final RFP.
Bayou Phoenix promotes a strong, collaborative master development vision, including a sports complex managed by SFA, an indoor/outdoor waterpark and hotel, a logistics center, a mega travel center, and the redevelopment of the Eastover Country Club, Golf Course and Residences. If selected, the team will attempt to purchase an additional 172 acres of adjacent property to expand the master plan to include retail opportunities and an amusement park.
