Two-and-a-half years ago, California real estate investor Judah Hertz was little known in New Orleans circles. Today, after a 36-month buying spree, he controls more of the city's top office space than anyone else does. Hertz has spent about $155 million -- including at least $38 million of his own money -- acquiring four trophy office towers downtown.

And he's planning to buy more.

New York real estate magnate Donald Trump said Thursday he will join a team of Florida developers in transforming a Central Business District parking lot into what could become the tallest building in New Orleans.

The building, first announced in the spring, would be one of the first new high-rises constructed in the city in more than 25 years and could reach 750 feet, or 70 stories. As planned, it will house condominiums, a hotel, a five-star restaurant and retail space, and it could cost as much as $200 million to build.
