Jayson Seidman, developer of The Drifter, Hotel St. Vincent and the newly renovated Columns Hotel, has embarked on two new projects: a new-construction hotel on St. Charles Avenue and a project in the French Quarter near Jackson Square. Seidman has invested in several other places, including Marfa, Tex., Austin and New York City. So, why does he continue to invest in New Orleans? What promising metrics does he see that gives him confidence in our city’s future success?
Residents of this city need a reason to hope. And we need residents – committed, invested, caring citizens – to keep our neighborhoods and architecture lived in, loved, and protected.
