Historic Renovation & Pêche Restaurant
Landis completed two major projects in the heart of the Warehouse District, at the corner of Magazine and Julia streets – Pêche Seafood Grill and 450 Julia Street, consisting of nine high-end residential units and an art gallery.
The 4,800 square foot restaurant was completed in spring 2013. The restaurant’s concept centers around a large, open-flamed grill, considered to be the first of its specific type in this area. This particular design utilized a new material called Isokern, constructed with volcanic ash. Additionally, the walls of the kitchen and restrooms are fire clay tile made of recycled materials using sustainable methods.
The project’s residential component, known as 450 Julia Street, was completed fall of 2013. Most of the apartments are two-story, 2000 square feet, with two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths and walk-in closets. One of the apartments, with a beautiful loft bedroom, occupies the same space as the original 19th century funeral home embalming room, identifiable by its ornately-designed ceiling molding. In the end, Landis was able to deliver to the Owner a high quality restoration that signifies the true historic nature of the building.
