NEW ORLEANS — Construction will begin on Poydras Street in the first quarter of 2007 on the $400-million condo/hotel/retail project by real estate mogul Donald Trump.

Project applications are expected to be filed with the city within a couple of weeks, said Ed Suffern, attorney for Dwyer & Cambre, the New Orleans-area firm representing Poydras LLC. Clifford Mowe is the lead developer for Poydras LLC, the company developing the project, Suffern said.

The developers remain committed to New Orleans, Suffern said. Before construction can begin, applications for approval will be filed with the City Planning Commission and the Historic District Landmarks Commission, he said. HDLC approval is needed because the project is slated for a historic area, he said.

Developers are waiting for architects to finish plans, he said.
