JMI Reality, LLC engaged Impetus (formerly Palmisano) as the Design-Build contractor to lead the renovation and hotel flag conversion of the 17-story Kimpton Hotel Fontenot located in the Central Business District of downtown New Orleans. This project included the buildout of a parking garage, meeting rooms, dining, prefunction and back of house support areas as well as circulation, for an existing 4-story structure.
An additional phase involved the renovation and remodel of the existing hotel. This phase included the replacement of the existing lobby with new registration, dining, circulation and office areas as well as converting existing meeting rooms and back of house areas to guest rooms and a fitness center. Guest rooms on levels 3 through 18 were renovated, and two-bedroom units on levels 2 through 17 were divided into smaller units. Slated for completion in 2020, this 232,000-square-foot hotel was designed by Delawie Architects
