The Garage, an adaptive reuse project in New Orleans, comprises 62 residential units across 154,000-sf. The project also includes 20,900 sf of retail space on the main level.

Built from what was once a 1950’s car dealership and its integrated parking structure, The Garage features amenities such as a rooftop pool and lounge, equipped with a 24/7 fitness center; roll-up garage doors in the units that separate the bedrooms from the rest of the living space; and two fully automated, class-B freight elevators that allow residents to self-park next to their residence.

An overhead monitor directs residents to the appropriate lift once they arrive home. The system is outfitted with a laser guidance system to ensure safety and reliability, meaning only once the car is centered in the lift will the monitor instruct the occupant to put their car in park and close the doors. The lifts are 21 feet long, 9 feet wide, and 10 feet tall with a capacity of 8,000 pounds. Residents register their vehicles with the property so the system knows the exact location of the reserved, oversized spot, bringing the vehicle and its occupant to the appropriate floor in no more than a minute.

Apartments and condominiums both feature flexible layouts, with the condominiums residing on the top floors of the project.
