This transformational historic renovation in the heart of New Orleans’ Warehouse District converted a former law firm into luxury apartments, office space, and the new home of the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience. After having spent the last several decades operating out of a tiny summer camp near Utica, Mississippi, the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience now occupies the bottom two floors of the building, which is appropriately situated in the city’s well-trafficked Warehouse District within blocks of the National WWII Museum, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Contemporary Arts Center, the new Culinary and Hospitality Institute, and the Southern Food & Beverage Museum.

The scope for this project consisted of the restoration of existing wood windows, repairing existing stucco and masonry, metal panel wall systems, removing/replacing the existing parking lot and installing new underground utilities, in addition to two new elevators, sprinkler, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and fire alarm systems. Landis completed the museum build-out on the first floor, tenant apartments on the second through fourth floors, and a community space and rooftop terrace on the fifth floor with little to no disruption to the surrounding roadways or buildings, including the headquarters of WDSU News located directly behind the construction site.

The COVID-19 Site Specific Safety Plan that Landis submitted for this project was absolutely fantastic - the most in-depth, detailed I have seen thus far throughout this pandemic. Landis continues to go above and beyond while most other general contractors simply saying they’re ‘following CDC guidelines.’ Thank you to the entire Landis project team for their continued commitment to the safety and well-being of their staff, partners, and surrounding community.
