The $85 million, 330 unit luxury apartment building under construction at 1535 Canal Street in downtown New Orleans is progressing, with construction set to complete mid-2019.
Developers Provident Realty Advisors of Dallas and The Kroenke Group of Columbia, are building Canal Crossing, a large mixed-use development on Canal Street. The site was formerly a surface parking lot at 1535 Canal Street.
Project plans include the construction of a 400,000 square foot building with ground floor commercial, a 10,000 square foot courtyard and the upper floors residential, and a ten-story, 187,000 square foot parking garage with 500 parking spaces. The garage ground floor also features a pet park. The project will offer 330 one-bedroom and two-bedroom market-rate apartments. The units will all feature balconies.
The Canal Crossing team also includes designer Wallace Garcia Wilson of Houston and New Orleans-based Mathes Brierre Architects. Dallas-based PRA Construction LP is the general contractor.
Note: This story was updated. The original article mentioned that the developer had filed plans to add a tenth story, which was erroneously reported based on published city data. The garage will be 10 stories, but the apartment building will remain at nine. The story was updated to reflect these changes.
