Renderings of the proposed Virgin Hotel New Orleans by Mathes Brierre Architects via City of New Orleans.
Mathes Brierre, the project architects, filed the construction permit set of plans last month. The project calls for a 14 story, new construction Virgin Hotel with 224 rooms and 260 total beds. The building will encompass 146,000 square feet and include meeting rooms, bars, restaurants, and a roof top F&B space.
Dallas-based Gatehouse Capital and New Orleans-based DAG Development were the original developers on the project, but it now appears that Delaware-based Buccini/Pollin Group is the new developer, or is at least involved now at this stage.
New Orleans-based Broadmoor, LLC is the general contractor, New Orleans-based Logan Killen is the interior designer, and Dallas-based CallisonRTKL is another design firm.
