Six Flags / Jazzland Site Redevelopment Proposal from Local Team

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.

Betrayed and Frustrated

By Kenneth Cooper

The Mayor’s Handling Of Six Flags Has Left Many In The East Feeling Betrayed And Frustrated

The people of New Orleans East want answers. Katrina devastated the area 16 years ago. For 16 years they continue to wait for an influx of economic development in the East. And for 16 years they’ve been left frustrated. Then Mayor Cantrell announced that the long abandoned Six Flags site would be development. Hopes were raised. She then backed that up by forming a selection committee to solicit and weigh proposals. The people of the East were then promised a quick and fair process. So far though, there’s been nothing quick or fair about it. And in the meantime, many in the East feel that their voices are ignored.

Did Drew Brees and Demario Davis Cheat?

By Kenneth Cooper

Drew Brees Gets An Early Retirement Present 

They say the NFL is a copy cat league. A league where one team tries to mimic the successful blueprint laid out by another. Well apparently Drew Brees and Demario Davis have taken that mentality. And they applied it to the areas of economic development and submitting business proposals to the city as well.

WWL-TV – Six Flags Redevelopment Down to Two Proposals

I think this plan is amazing. I am born and raised in this city, and I’ve seen it been Jazzland, and then Six Flags. I pray this idea turns into a major production, that the people of New Orleans East can be extremely proud of. A lot of the original culture is being gentrified, and I know in my heart, this will put a sense of being included and wanted back into New Orleans East residents. I don’t live in the New Orleans East area, but I know that it seems as if the East has been pushed to the side and forgotten about. Other areas of this city have been and continue to be cared for more than New Orleans East. I remember growing up seeing people who looked like me, living and enjoying middle-class, in and around New Orleans East. My family shopped and did the majority of their pampering in the East and adjacent areas. This is an immense vital project that is crucial to the survival of our black community. Please allow this wonderful idea to become our reality!

I hope that your plans can take shape we need something in New Orleans East to bring us back together as a community and make New Orleans whole again. We have been divided too long in 6 flags/ Jazzland been vacant for too many years. I am a homeowner in New Orleans East and I think this would be great for the community. May God-bless the development. Blessings
