McAlister Place Project

Design Team:

Wayne Troyer Architects with Towers|Golde Landscape Architects

Master Plan:

Mossop + Michaels, Towers|Golde Landscape Architects, IMS Engineers, and LAM Partners Inc.




The McAlister Place Project is part of a long-term, campus beautification project that will eventually unite the quads between McAlister Auditorium and Newcomb Hall, transforming them into a beautiful and vibrant pedestrian environment with limited traffic and parking in the areas flanking the green space. 

The transformation of McAlister Place is funded through the generosity of a university donor. Work was centered on the closing of McAlister Drive between Freret Street and Drill Road, as the area was changed from a through street and parking area to a beautiful pedestrian landscape that provides a lovely and safer place for walking and cycling through the Tulane campus. Construction began on Monday, May 18 with a major campus drainage improvement project, and is now open to pedestrian traffic.
