Virgin Hotels Breaks Ground on New Orleans Property

Projects |

Virgin Hotels has broken ground on its New Orleans location, located in the Warehouse District at 550 Baronne Street.

The $80 million hotel will feature over 200 rooms, multiple dining and drinking outlets such as the brand’s signature Commons Club and the recently announced Funny Library Coffee Shop, a rooftop pool and lounge, gym and dedicated meetings and event spaces.

Moses Engineers provided electrical engineering designs for the building’s power and back-of-house lighting systems, including all incoming power and distributions throughout the building’s apartments and commercial venues. Moses Engineers also designed an emergency generator for Life Safety (elevators, lighting, smoke purge fans) and IT systems.
