The Class A Pan American Life Center, a 673,000-square-foot office building located at the corner of Poydras Street and St. Charles Avenue, will be undergoing $7 million in upgrades to its 11th floor café and conference center and ground-floor lobby.
The building’s property manager, Covington-based Stirling Properties, announced that construction is currently underway that will include a renovated café, state-of-the-art conference center and upgraded ground floor lobby.
The café-style restaurant will be located on the 11th floor, offering professional food service and enhanced menu options for building tenants, users of the conference center and surrounding customers. The renovation work on the 11th floor will feature a modernized dining area, upgraded furniture, new flooring, LED lighting and an exciting new menu. Construction began in early January and is expected to be complete in the summer of 2020.
“Stirling Properties recognizes the changing office environment. Users want more collaborative, open floor plans, ample amenities and innovative trophy projects. These trends in the commercial industry increase the need for more curated properties,” said Grady Brame, Executive Vice President with Stirling Properties.
“The renovations underway at the Pan American Life Center will uniquely position the office tower as one of a kind in the New Orleans CBD, offering new and improved amenities for existing and future tenants. These building enhancements will make our workplace more enjoyable, and also attractive in recruiting and retaining employees,” said Jose S. Suquet, Chairman of the Board, President & CEO of Pan-American Life Insurance Group.
Pan American Life Center is one of New Orleans’ most prestigious office towers. Built in 1980, the granite-clad, Class A trophy tower encompasses roughly 673,000 square feet of office and retail space, as well as an eight-story parking structure.
Office tenants include Pan American Life Insurance Group, IBERIABANK, Morris Bart Law Offices, McGlinchey Stafford, Merrill Lynch and Stirling Properties.
