Armstrong Park was developed by the City of New Orleans to memorialize the contributions of one its greatest citizens, Louis Armstrong. The City’s goal was to create a park which would be a living and dynamic reflection of Armstrong’s cultural legacy. In response to the City of New Orleans solicitation for development interest, the Harrison Price Company (HPC) was retained by Osmond Entertainment and Tommy Walker Spectaculars to conceptualize the content of an attraction consistent with its market demand and economic opportunity, specifically: to recommend a concept of development; to determine an appropriate investment level and development cost consistent with market support; to analyze the financial implications of the recommended development; to assess the interrelationship with the Louisiana World Exposition. The resulting report has the following sections: introduction, market support, concept development. The report includes 13 tables.
