NEW ORLEANS — Wampold Cos. and The Lemoine Co. have acquired the Whitney Bank Building Complex, a 500,000-square-foot office campus comprising seven buildings in New Orleans. The Whitney Bank Building, built in 1911, anchors the four-block development. Wampold and Lemoine plan to turn the former headquarters of Hancock Whitney Bank into a mixed-use development comprising hotel rooms, apartments, stores and restaurants. Construction is expected to begin in mid-2020. Hancock Whitney Corp. sold the complex to the joint venture for an undisclosed price.
