New Orleans-based MKRED started working on the Bywater luxury condo project ’32Hundred’ back in 2015 when it secured city and HDLC approval.
After a short delay, MKRED completely redesigned the project and secured HDLC Architectural Review Committee approval this week. “This project is a much more mature representation of how MKRED has grown over the last four years of business” co-founder Michael Bosio told CanalStreetBeat. “The design features a very innovative take on riverfront living in New Orleans. The development is slightly smaller, with larger units, and focuses on views and livability.”
The revised plans includes 14 split-story riverfront condos and 3,000 square feet of commercial space. Each unit fronts both Chartres street and Mississippi River, allowing residents to interact with both the river and the neighborhood. “We want to create a product where everyone gets a river view” said Bosio.
Unit amenities include two-story living with private elevators, large accordion glass walls overlooking the river, open floor plan, two bed two bath configuration, private outdoor space on the river, gas appliances, 10′ to 11’ ceilings and the ability to work with MKRED directly on choice of finish. Building amenities will include a concrete and steel structure, a swimming pool with a view, outdoor grill deck, pet-friendly green space, fitness center, secure parking and a rooftop garden focusing on the city’s requirements for stormwater management.
“As we start to take commitments on units it was extremely important to get this back in front of the city and make sure we were all on the same page” said co-founder Kyle Resmondo. Pricing starts at 649,000 for units overlooking Crescent Park and the Mississippi River with several units already under contract. “The condo market is very competitive in New Orleans right now. Our goal is to provide a standout product at a competitive price” said Bosio.
The developers say that they plan to lease the 3,000 square feet of commercial space to a tenant that will ultimately enhance the community and increase the quality of life for the residents of 32Hundred.
