Developers plan to revamp blocks of downtown N.O.

New Orleans, La. - Expect to see a section of downtown New Orleans go through a rebirth.

According to our partners at CityBusiness, multiple projects are in the works to transform blocks within walking distance of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The first project is a residential-retail building on the north side of O'Keefe Avenue between Lafayette and Girod Streets. Another project would renovate additional retail space that's nearby.

Combined, the projects would add 47,000 square feet of retail space and hundreds of new apartments to the area.

Developers have not said yet when they expect to complete their projects.
