1770 Tchoupitoulas Street is a mixed-use property for lease in New Orleans, LA.
The Centennial Cotton Press Building harkens back to a time when New Orleans handled nearly one-third of all cotton produced in America and hosted the World's Cotton Centennial Exposition in 1884. The Cotton Press, along with the other buildings in the block, have been completely renovated by Renaissance Neighborhood Development Corporation (RNDC), a subsidiary of Volunteers of America (VOA).
The residential component of the redevelopment includes 15 junior one-bedroom, 32 one-bedroom and 5 two-bedroom apartment homes which are certified LEED for Homes Silver. Another component is an 8,000sf commercial kitchen operating as The Fresh Food Initiative. The unique program serves healthy meals to local schools and provides job training in the culinary arts to 125 individuals annually.
The commercial space is perfect for an office, retail or other creative user. It features a blend of old and new; the free span space is complemented by updated electrical and brand new HVAC systems. Other features include 14' cypress beams crossing a gabled roof with 25.5' eaves at center and 14' eaves on either side of the space. At least 8, and possibly more, dedicated parking spaces are available for this property.
The New Orleans Regional Planning Commission showed ADT of 32,529 at this site in 2009.
