HRI Properties engaged Impetus (formerly Palmisano) as the Design-Build contractor to lead the new construction of a 207-room hotel under the Homewood Suites flag located near the edge of the historic French Quarter. Prior to construction, an electrical supply warehouse occupied the entire block. This project involved extensive civil work, including the demolition of existing buildings, slabs, footing, and parking areas; installation of a 35,000-gallon subsurface water retention system; installation of the engineered crane pad for the erection of the precast building structure as well as site fill, grading, and concrete paving of the lobby and parking garage.
Completed in 2016, the entire 160,000-square-foot, four-story structure—including all walls and floors—is formed from pre-cast concrete panels. In addition to a central courtyard and swimming pool, meeting rooms, and a fitness room, each suite features a fully-equipped kitchen and separate areas for living, working, and sleeping.
