144 Elk Luxury Lofts

Salas O’Brien provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering for the 210,000 square foot Elk Luxury Lofts.

This project was a conversion of a 1970’s 16-story office building in New Orleans. The office building was converted into a luxury apartment rental complex complete with a rooftop pool, fitness center, and retail on the ground floor. The building also houses seven floors of parking for the tenants.

This was an exciting project as the team put this building back into commission after it was shuttered due to Hurricane Katrina flooding the ground floor.

Working with the existing building conditions and a tight timeline made this project a challenge and ultimately a huge success.
