Former New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is partners in a group that has been selected by New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, as a finalist to redevelop a Six Flags location. The location has been abandoned for the past 16-years.
His group — that also includes Saints linebacker Demario Davis and Buffalo Bills cornerback Josh Norman — was selected over six proposals. S.H.I.E.L.D. 1 Foundation — a partnership between Brees, Davis, and Norman — and developer Kiernan West LLC of Colorado has new plans for the location.
Instead of re-creating another Six Flags, the plan for the location is to turn the space into educational centers, including a spot, where young people can learn about farming, according to NOLA.com. There will also be several amenities at the location.
The Saints legend and his team will have to beat out two additional bids for location. Situs Development Collective — who is second in the bidding — wants to build another Six Flags-type of location with a waterpark, an RV parking location, along with retail stores.
The third bid is from TKTMJ Inc. and Henry Consulting. This group wants to turn the place into another amusement park, along with a logistics hub and a travel center.
These bidders will make a final proposal in the next few months. NOLA.com is reporting that the winner of the bid will be announced by early summer.
