The former home of local favorite Blue Plate Mayonnaise was rehabilitated by HRI Properties and JCH Development into 72 mixed income loft-style apartments designed with a leasing preference for artists.
The Blue Plate building is listed on the National Register of Historic Landmarks and is located in a designated Louisiana Cultural District. It was originally constructed in 1941. Designed by famed New Orleans architect August Perez, it was the first building in New Orleans constructed in the Art Moderne style. The sleek structure is famous for its distinctive smooth, all-white exterior, rounded glass-block corners and the iconic Blue Plate rooftop sign.
This development includes on-site gated parking; a common studio/gallery space for exhibitions; a roof deck; an outdoor patio and landscaped courtyard; a sound-proof music rehearsal room; a fitness center; business center and bicycle storage. In addition, a number of renewable and sustainable design features were incorporated into the building to reduce residents’ utility costs and overall operating costs.
