Stone Planning Hired by Louisiana’s St. Tammany Corporation to Study New Event Center

Stone Planning has been hired by the St. Tammany Corporation, the economic development arm of Louisiana’s St. Tammany Parish, to study the feasibility of a new, multipurpose event center in the Parish. The study will include a local market analysis and an analysis of the local and regional competitive environment for facilities and events, identification of potential users such as minor-league sports, entertainment, community, and other events, and analyses of case-study facilities in similar markets. We will also consider multiple sites within the Parish, which is in New Orleans’ North Shore. Based on these analyses, we will recommend a viable development and site, and then project its future usage and economics. We will also analyze a set of potential financing methods for the facility and identify any that are viable in Louisiana.
