Tulane River and Coastal Center, LEED Gold
The Tulane Center of Excellence (CoE) for Coastal Protection and Restoration is a new interdisciplinary effort at the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research (CBR) in the Mississippi river delta. The project will also establish the identity of a new Tulane University riverfront campus in downtown New Orleans. With the CoE as its centerpiece, this campus will serve as a magnet for research and investment, providing an exceptional platform for expanding existing and emerging economic sectors capable of restoring and protecting the coast. The project will be developed in phases and will include new laboratory, exhibition, educational, and conferencing facilities, in addition to open space and parking. Read more.
