Entergy Tower (also known as One Poydras Plaza), located at 639 Loyola Avenue in the Central Business District of New Orleans, Louisiana, is a 28-story, 360 feet (110 m)-tall skyscraper.

The building used to have the Consulate-General of Japan in New Orleans.[1] In 2006 Japan announced that it was moving the consulate to Nashville, Tennessee.[2] The Japanese Government relocated the mission to be close to industries and operations owned by Japanese companies.[3]
