The plans for the proposed $5.5 million condo development next to Crescent Park bridge at 3220 Chartres Street will be presented to the Bywater Neighborhood Association tomorrow, December 10.

Developers David Fuselier and Patrick Schoen, along with architects Mathes Brierre, will be presenting their design plans for the project.  You can check out the renderings here.

The new mixed-use project combines a small commercial space and 12 condominiums with outdoor amenities and 12 parking spaces.  The 23,400 SF building is four stories (55 feet), with commercial and parking on the ground floor and condominiums above. Outdoor terraces are located on the roof and on a second-floor terrace facing the Mississippi River.

The project is located on a vacant brownfield site adjacent to the river and the new Crescent Park in an previous industrial zone adjacent to the Historic Bywater Neighborhood. The lot is zoned Historic Marigny/Treme/Bywater Mixed-Use District (HM-MU) and is in the Riverfront Design Overlay District (RIV). These zoning designations were adopted as part of the New Orleans Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance and change the designation of the lot to allow mixed-use.

The project will not pursue the allowed height bonus and does not require variances or waivers.

The project is immediately next to the luxury mixed-use development proposed for 3200 Chartres by Developer MK Red.  That project will be a top of line, well designed,  55 foot condo building featuring 16 luxury condominium units.  The development will feature a modern design.

You can check out the meeting at 3500 St. Claude Avenue, Holy Angels, Upstairs concert hall, at 630pm.
