They will eventually be allowed to build the Holy Cross high rise

Mostly because it will now be up to the city council to decide. And because this is precisely what our councilpersons want.
The plan’s backers say it represents a rare chance at economic revitalization for the neighborhood. Its opponents say it would destroy the fabric of Holy Cross, and might represent the first step toward changing the traditionally low-rise New Orleans waterfront into something very different: the kind of high-rise, high-rent district you see in Miami or Houston.
Pretty sure Jackie gets to vote for this before she leaves.
