Julia Street is a contemporary mixed-use development proposed for a 35,251 sf city block in the Central Business District of New Orleans. A vertical community composed of two structures, a forty-nine story residential micro-tower and 16 story mid-rise building, are connected by a shared garden terrace atop a podium. The form of the two buildings are each uniquely designed to respond to the conditions of the site and surrounding context. The two glass monoliths are in dialogue with each other, while also offering residents’ endless vistas of the city and Louisiana landscape beyond.
