930 Poydras Residential Tower, New Orleans, La., by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple.
This 21-floor mixed-use residential project is designed to re-imagine the typically horizontal condition of New Orleans’ dense French Quarter blocks as a vertical condition. The program includes 250 apartments above three ground level retail spaces and a 500-car garage. As a means to recreate the social interaction found in the courtyards of the city’s historic quarter, the design consolidates all tenant amenities at the ninth floor in order to condense their programmatic force. At this raised “courtyard” level, shuttle elevators transfer from garage to tower to promote opportunities for residents to cross paths with one another in a shared, communal space as opposed to the typical, introverted experiences found in most high-rise residential developments.
