New Orleans Event Series Attracts Entrepreneurial Community

Silicon Bayou News’ sister site, Canal Street Beat, is partnering with May & Ellis for the third event in a monthly series designed to showcase new developments and interesting properties in New Orleans. The project was developed by Abri Design + Development.

Located on Chartres Street in the French Quarter less than two blocks from Canal Street, May & Ellis is a one-of-a-kind, historic renovation featuring exposed heavy timber beams, 11-12 foot ceilings, and spacious loft apartments with a contemporary aesthetic. Two newly constructed courtyards and a rooftop terrace and lounge with river views transform the building into a light-filled oasis. The property contains 25 residential units and 6,800 square feet of retail space.

Neighbors, entrepreneurs, professionals, business people, press, and the real estate community are all invited to attend. The purpose of the event is to showcase new developments, hear directly from the developers, and bring together community, and motivated people interested in real estate, urban planning, and community development.

Developers Clayton Randle and David Hecht will be the hosts of the evening, and will be able to share the development story, challenges with historic renovations, and everything that went in to this beautiful restoration.

Refreshments provided by St. James Cheese Company.
