Impetus (formerly Palmisano) worked with Abri Design & Development as the Design-Assist contractor for the historic renovation of two historic French Quarter buildings—one three-story and one five-story—into 25 luxury apartment rentals located on Chartres Street. The buildings were last used as Hurwitz Mintz furniture stores before being vacant for more than a decade.
Designed by Trapolin-Peer and completed in 2016, the renovation of this 40,000-square-foot space included cutting a light well into each building, adding two white-box retail spaces on the ground floor, rooftop expansions to one apartment, creating a variety of residential accessory spaces, and the build-out of a rooftop deck and amenity area for guests.
