Rendering of New Orleans Convention Center’s Linear Park reports that starting this summer, the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center will embark on a five-year, $557 million plan to upgrade the facility and surrounding areas, including the construction of a 7.5-acre pedestrian park along Convention Center Boulevard. The plan rekindles talks for a new 1,200-room Convention Center hotel, an addition long sought by hospitality leaders.

The spending plan, recently approved by the New Orleans Exhibition Hall Authority, which oversees the Convention Center, sets aside about $379 million for improvements to the center itself, including upgrades to public areas, meeting rooms, restrooms, audio visual equipment and escalators and elevators.
