Clayco provided design-build services for the 103,388-square-foot Nine 27 Apartment project in New Orleans’ historic and trendy Warehouse District. Each of the 76 units were carefully planned to meet the building requirements of the district, including maintaining a total building height of no more than 50 feet. The building keeps the historic atmosphere of the district intact while providing residents with top-of-the-line living spaces with amenities such as a business center, 69-space parking garage, and apartments ranging in size from 557 square feet to 1,047-square-foot, two-bedroom units.
To maintain the feel of the Warehouse District, Clayco incorporated a number of historic elements, including balconies with French doors, window detailing with projected lintels and sills, cornices and pilasters, and Spanish cedar or mahogany window infill at grade level. Unit finishes include wood laminate floors, ceramic tile, carpet, energy-saving appliances and HVAC, granite countertops in the kitchen, and in-unit washers and dryers.
