Architect Morris Adjmi is returning to his roots by designing The Standard, an $80 million condominium and retail space by The Domain Companies in the South Market District in New Orleans.
Adjmi is the founder of the New York City-based firm Morris Adjmi Architects, but as a New Orleans native, he says he’s always been inspired by his hometown. Through the new building he’s able to leave a lasting impression on a city that shaped him, he says.“We’re bringing a luxury level to New Orleans that doesn’t exist,” he told Mansion Global. The building has 89 apartments, ranging from one-to-three bedrooms.
“Apartments with finishes like these would sell for two or three times more in New York,” Adjmi said. Condominiums will start at $575,000 for a one-bedroom.“We have these very large windows, a full amenity package, including a terrace level with pool and gardens that are going to surpass anything you see there. In New Orleans, having outdoor space—cabanas and a roof deck specifically—is a tremendous amenity,” Adjmi said.
