Elliott Bay Design Group (EBDG) announced that its New Orleans staff has moved into its permanent home, 4,750 sq ft of prime office space on the 15th floor of the One Canal Place building. The staff operated out of temporary space in the same building for the past six months, while the build-outs were completed in the new office. The move took place over the October 10 and 11 weekend with the office up and fully functioning on Monday morning. Situated on the Mississippi River, the space is within walking distance to many of EBDG's Gulf area clients.
In late 2006, EBDG opened its Gulf area office to better serve its clients. New Orleans was selected for its central location and as an opportunity to help rebuild the Gulf region and support the marine industry following hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
