Federal City is a public-private mixed-use development located on the former Naval Support Activity (NSA) New Orleans, West Bank property in the Algiers historic district of New Orleans. The development is comprised of 156 acres and offers a mix of administrative, commercial, R&D, residential, and recreational opportunities. The property has approximately 800,000 square feet of existing structures available for adaptive reuse, as well as significant open space for build to suit facilities.
Federal City is located in the Algiers District, the only part of New Orleans that is on the Mississippi River's West Bank. It is also directly across from and less than two miles east of the Central Business District (CBD) and French Quarter of New Orleans, along State Highway 90. It has convenient access to major interstate highways, railheads, the Mississippi River, and the international airport.
Algiers Point is connected to the CBD by a ferry and interstate toll free bridge. Public buses run routes both within Algiers and over the Crescent City Connection bridge, connecting Algiers with the CBD. Most land uses in Algiers are residential with some neighborhood retail, commerce, and light industrial uses.
Federal City is located on one of the highest points in New Orleans and is above the 100-year flood plain. Due to the $15 billion of protection features constructed since Hurricane Katrina and the tailored facilities on the Secured Compound, Federal City is one of the most capable places for sustaining operations after a natural or manmade disaster.
Federal City is currently home to: The Marine Force Reserves Headquarters, the 4th Marine Division, the 4th Marine Aircraft Wing, and the 4th Marine Logistics Group (411,000 sq. ft. of office space with over 1,500 full-time military positions and additional visiting reservists), New Orleans Military and Maritime Academy, a charter military school, Coast Guard Sector Command,
Navy Federal Credit Union, 4th District Headquarters, New Orleans Police Department, Ochsner West Bank Fitness Center, Federal City Child Development Center, Federal City Inn & Suites, a 128 room lodging facility, and Federal City Auditorium, a 400-person capacity Conference Center.
