Trage Condos 1100 Annunication

 


The Tracage High Rise Condos are course to begin construction in the beginning of 2008 if all goes well. This will be the first high rise built in almost 20 years and only the second one in the Warehouse District since One River Place was built. Its got a great location for Mississippi River Views and is in the center of new condos and condo conversions in the last 4-5 years. These units will be different that many of the past projects and will fill a void for a new luxury high rise with all the amenities. Many times I am asked if these are putting too many units in the Warehouse District. I say that when you have something very different and in a luxury range it only adds to the entire area. Some people will love these and the things it has to offer. In New Orleans Pre-sales have always been a tough sale as the locals are a skeptical bunch. Those willing to take a small change could end up with some nice appreciation when the units are completed.

Tracage Condos In the Warehouse District

 August 2007

NEW ORLEANS - Construction on the $60-million Tracage condominium project to be built in the Warehouse District will begin late this year, developers said.

The 24-story, 136-unit project is scheduled to be complete by late 2009.

The developer is Tracage Development, a joint venture between Jackson, Miss.-based Spectrum Capital and New Orleans-based Isis Development Group.

The development team involves Spectrum Capital, Yates Construction, Foil Wyatt Architects and Planners and Trapolin Architects.

"Since Katrina, there has been a great deal of talk and very little action on the condo front in New Orleans," said Jason Voyles, president of Spectrum Capital and lead project developer.

Bethany Foote, Tracage sales agent, said interest in Tracage has been strong. Buyers include destination travelers and New Orleanians who were living in areas such as Lakeview before Hurricane Katrina.

Units range from the mid-$200,000s to more than $2 million.


$60M Tracage condo construction set

02/26/2007 as reported by City Business

Construction on the $60-million Tracage luxury condominiums will start at the corner of Annunciation and John Churchill Chase streets in the second quarter, a project developer said. Rob Tatum said the 126-unit project will be built, even though some critics question whether various developers will actually build all the condos announced after Hurricane Katrina. So far, roughly 60 percent of the units have reservations but no hard contracts yet, he said. Tatum cited post-Hurricane Katrina challenges in building the 24-story project.The project should be complete by mid-2009, he said.

On March 1, developers will open a sample unit at 711 Tchoupitoulas St.

Units will range from $199,000 for a roughly 600-square-foot condo to more than $2 million for a two-story, roughly 3,000-square-foot penthouse. Yates Construction will build the condos. In November, a bulldozer knocked down a concrete warehouse at the site to make way for construction.
