A Developer Wants to Build a Beach in Algiers Point

The developer is "not ready" to discuss the project

Did you know a local developer named Gulfwater Properties proposed a "city beach" in Algiers Point to residents and the city back in February? According to WWL they did, but the Second Life-esque YouTube video depicting the development has been taken down.

Besides a beach, the proposal outlined a restaurant, seminar room, snack bar, raised deck, and a swimming pool for Algiers Point's now-quiet riverfront.

Although the developer took down that YouTube video of the project (which was posted on Reddit, to mixed reviews) after WWL reached out to them, the project still might be on. When reached for comment by the TV station, the developer responded that was he "not ready to discuss the project."
