The new Cambria Hotel New Orleans sits comfortably in the vibrant warehouse district neighborhood, surrounded by a mix of historic buildings, converted warehouses, and modern commercial and residential structures. With its brick facade and steel windows, it feels as if it has been there forever, an integral part of the neighborhood’s fabric. The site of the new hotel had remained underutilized for years, bypassed by developers because of its odd footprint, limited street frontage, and strict regulatory restrictions. With a clear vision of the site’s potential and a creative approach to design and construction challenges, Landis worked alongside owner Fillmore Hospitality and Holly & Smith Architects to transform this former parking lot into a handsome and functional full-service hotel, a hospitable and neighborly addition to the streetscape.
The tight urban infill location of the project required an extraordinary level of coordination and cooperation with the owners of adjacent properties. Your team skillfully managed that process with professionalism, communication with the neighbors consistently, and always being available to address their concerns.”
