New Orleans, LA


Ace Hotel at 600 Carondelet

This 184,000 square foot mixed-use development utilizes historic tax credits for the renovation of an existing 9-story circa 1929 building with Art Deco elements. Once the home of the largest furniture store in the South, the building was designed by the architect of Huey P. Long’s Louisiana State Capitol. A contemporary 4-story addition complements the original construction, with materials such as a hand-made brick and cast stone. Program components include a 234 room boutique hotel, bar, restaurant, meeting spaces, and retail component. The ultimate space of the project is a rooftop pool deck and lounge that will feature lush plantings and views of downtown. The project is punctuated with elements that recall images of New Orleans, such as a carriageway and courtyard, balcony gardens, and an eclectic collection of interior materials and furnishings.
