The YAYA Arts Center, located on LaSalle Street in Central City, now has their very own home. The timeline to complete this project was extremely fast-paced, but Landis was able to complete the project on-schedule and under budget. The schedule gave Landis five months from ground-up to completion for this community institute.
Designed by Cesar Pelli, the St. Katharine Drexel Chapel addition to the campus finally brought to life the original visions of Xavier’s founder to provide a religious place of respite for the university. The massive 400-seat church sanctuary with vaulting octagonal ceilings and detailed limestone walls was built with a completely hidden infrastructure.
The Convocation Center and Annex Building project is the next in a long history of projects Landis has completed for Xavier University. Bounded by Short, Palm, and Stroelitz Streets, the project includes a 94,000 square foot multipurpose Arena and a 23,000 square foot Annex Building.
The 401 Girod Street Apartment project is part of a larger Warehouse District development that includes renovations to the neighboring 637 and 641 Tchoupitoulas Street properties. A “low-key”, circa 1870 Commercial Warehouse, the Girod Street building was converted into an auto service/filling station in the early 20th century.
The new branch located on Manhattan Blvd. in Harvey, LA is a commericial, residential, and business banking branch. The one-story building measures approximately 5,400 square feet and is a wood structure on pile-supported concrete slab.
The branch was designed to serve as the hub for the bank should another catastrophe happen in the future.
Landis performed extensive renovations and added two new stair/elevator towers to the existing 5-story Courthouse building. The 115,000 square foot, Thomas F. Donelon Building houses the 24th Judicial District Court, Clerk of Court’s Office and Sheriff’s Department prisoner holding facilities.
The major renovation to the facility includes 16 state-of-the art courtrooms with Judges’ chambers and support spaces; new offices for the Clerk of Court; large jury pool room; secured prisoner holding area with new elevator and stairs from the adjacent prison; private entrance, secure elevator and stairs for judges.
