600 Carondelet Street Hotel Begins Construction - Monday, August 11, 2014

Interior demolition is now underway at a nine-story downtown office building that will be part of a hotel property being developed by the Domain Companies, the developers behind the South Market District project.

Broadmoor, in a Joint Venture partnership with Palmisano Contractors, was selected as the CM at Risk for the project in May of this year. Our team has started work to clear office partitions and remove asbestos and lead paint inside the 136,000-square-foot building at 600 Carondelet Street in Downtown New Orleans. Architectural firm Eskew+Dumez+Ripple is the design leader on the project.

Full construction is slated to begin by the end of this year and wrap up by the end of 2015. The historically-protected building will receive a complete overhaul to make room for a 234-room hotel with a rooftop pool. The team will restore the exterior of the 80-year-old building to its historic condition by replacing the ground floor storefront aluminum windows, recessing the entrance and adding awnings. The building was formerly home to Max Barnett’s furniture store.

An adjacent parking lot will become home to a modern, four-story addition, which will include a restaurant and more hotel public space. The project also includes the installation of a black and red neon sign to be hung over the main hotel entrance.

We’re excited to be a part of this project, continuing to expand on New Orleans’ hospitality offerings, and look forward to sharing more information about the hotel operator, opening dates, etc. as they are released.
