Cambria Suites, Ochsner West Tower continue construction

Construction on Warehouse District hotel and Jefferson medical complex are underway

Canal Street Beat dropped by the construction sites of two major projects in two parts of town, and reports that construction is progressing.

Construction on the $35 million Cambria Suites hotel is underway at 632 Tchoupitoulas St. According to the photos, most of the structural shell has been built, with the building now at seven stories. Glass windows on the back side of the building are being installed.

Among the city’s many hotel projects in progress, the hotel going up at the site of an old Warehouse District parking lot is slated to open spring 2017.

Over in Jefferson, construction on Ochsner’s $250 million West Tower expansion is moving along. Ochsner is making a lot of moves right now, developing Jefferson Highway and building emergency rooms around the city, contributing to some of the biggest real estate projects in the New Orleans area.
