The La Cire Wax Museum Condos project has recently transformed a New Orleans icon of old into a new, multi-family luxury residential building.  The 22,000 SF building will grow to approximately 41,000 square feet with the requisite renovation and two multi-level structural additions to this historic commercial building.  Broadmoor had the opportunity to perform the design and construction of this project, reviving the building building that has been out of commission since Hurricane Katrina.  The historic building from 1900’s  located in the heart of the French Quarter now consists of sixteen (16) high-end, luxury-condominiums, a courtyard featuring a water wall installation, and a rooftop pool.  The renovation included the complete removal of all interior elements and the roof while leaving the exterior party walls.  Broadmoor provided BIM Modeling on all building components in order to properly plan and execute the project.
