The same developer that turned an abandoned warehouse into luxury condominium has plans to convert the Howard & Baronne Storage Center, located at 846 Baronne Street, into a mixed-use apartment.
A $34 million project, the unit will have 50 units on the third, fourth, and fifth levels and retail space on the ground floor.
The existing building stands four stories tall, measuring in at 110,000 square feet. Recently, the developer—using the name 864 Baronne Street, LLC—received approval to add a fifth story to the building, which will be used as a penthouse level for the development. As per the plan, the developer will build the shell of the fifth story first and then proceed with interior renovations.
The development is in relationship with developer Orleans Properties, which has two planned condominiums in the Warehouse District: 628 Baronne and 701 South Peter Streets. Like 846 Baronne Street, both condominiums will be converted sites.
The condominium will be designed by Terrell Fabacher Architects, LLC. Orleans Shoring will serve as the general contractor.
