The former home of local favorite Blue Plate Mayonnaise was rehabilitated by HRI Properties and JCH Development into 72 mixed income loft-style apartments designed with a leasing preference for artists. The Blue Plate building is listed on the National Register of Historic Landmarks and is located in a designated Louisiana Cultural District. It was originally constructed in 1941. Designed by famed New Orleans architect August Perez, it was the first building in New Orleans constructed in the Art Moderne style. The sleek structure is famous for its distinctive smooth, all-white exterior, rounded glass-block corners and the iconic Blue Plate rooftop sign.
