To anyone who lives in or knows about New Orleans:

How is downtown and the office market since Katrina? I heard a bunch of buildings were abandoned afterwards. Are they fixed and all?

@royal rose1...all of the major office buildings are opened and occupied. There are only 3 buildings that are vacant at this time. The World Trade Center which was vacant before the hurricane. The city owns this building, and will like demolish it in the near future. It's not conducive to modern office layouts. The Plaza Tower was also vacant before the hurricane and has been bought by a local investor. He plans on converting it to a residential building. The final property is 225 Barrone. This building was occupied before the hurricane, but has not reopened. It was bought by a TX company with plans to convert to residential. However, the recession has stalled those plans.

Of the approximately 10.6 million square feet of Class A and B office space available...82% is occupied as of the 4th Quarter of 2011. Not bad given the current state of the economy. GE Capital just signed a lease for 60,000 sq. feet of space in one office building, so that will help boost occupancy numbers this year.
