A landmark tower block location in the New Orleans central business district is home to the Superdome business center. Situated on the 9th floor of a striking class-A building with a distinctive curved design of green granite and reflective glass, it is directly opposite the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. New Orleans is a major regional hub for the health care sector and the business center sits within the city's so-called Medical BioDistrict Corridor. World-famous cultural tourist attractions like the Mardi Gras festival benefit companies active in services and entertainment, and the city is also home to creative enterprises. Activity in oil refining and petrochemical production is significant and pro-business local government encourages diverse industries, including a small manufacturing sector. New Orleans has a concentration of higher learning institutions and is home to one of the world's busiest ports. The business center benefits from both on-site and nearby off-site amenities and has good access to road and rail links.
