Fresh Start for Development at Former Six Flags Site

New, 1 comment

It's take two for the former Six Flags amusement park site, which has been in development limbo for years now. A new request for proposals was released this week by the owners of the property, the Industrial Development Board. According to The New Orleans Advocate, two developers who were at Tuesday's meeting will submit plans for theme parks. Frank Mials Scurlock, CEO and founder of Alpha Party Rental Centers, dropped a hint that he will be presenting a proposal and to stay tuned at the T-Minus Group website. In an email to Curbed NOLA, Scurlock said he can't go into detail at this time, but "would love to elaborate after February 28th. I can say we are building a team to insure Success, Integrity and Education with the end result being Fun and Enjoyable by all." February 28 is the deadline for proposals. The request for proposals lists a slew of possibilities for the 150 acres in New Orleans East; from an amusement or water park to a shopping center to"projects related to the film industry" ("Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" set up shop here while filming). Plans for a shopping center were scrapped last year after the developers decided the $70-million reno at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk would present too much competition.
