Total Project Cost and End Date
$ 14 Million
Construction of this $14 Million multi-purpose facility was just completed in spring 2013 by a Joint Venture of G&M and White-Spunner, Inc. This Joint Venture was in charge of construction of this 5-story, 92,000 square-foot building, which included 70 apartment homes, 3 floors of office space, and one floor of retail space. The project site had a footprint of nearly the entire city-block and was located within five blocks of the Superdome. There was nearly a year and a half of work time. This job was one of many in a revitalization effort of uptown New Orleans.
The Harrell Building replaces urban blight with an 92,000 square-foot mixed-use development that includes a 20,000 square-foot commercial facility and 64,000 square-foot mixed-income senior rental housing. The commercial component houses the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority as anchor tenant on the upper 3 floors as well as ground floor retail space. The adjoining King Rampart Apartments provide affordable rental housing for residents 55 years and older with supportive services provided by First Evangelist Housing and Community Development Corporation.
