Tulane University’s downtown campus will soon include a new residential development: Thirteen15. Tulane is working with the New Orleans Redevelopment Fund to renovate the old Warwick Hotel at 1315 Gravier St. into a modern apartment building with retail and amenities.
Thirteen15 will house 154 fully furnished apartments catered to the Tulane community. Students, staff, faculty, postdocs, residents, researchers and other Tulane affiliates will be able to move in beginning this July. The development team has worked closely with the Louisiana State Historic Preservation Office to retain elements of the former hotel’s original 1950s charm while adding modern appeal to the long-vacant building.
The 12-story building includes a mix of furnished studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. Multiple retailers will occupy the ground floor, including a coffee shop and market. An open lobby will serve as meeting and study space and the new fitness center at Deming Pavilion (opening this fall) is one block away. Tulane’s downtown campus buildings are within a two-to-10-minute walk of Thirteen15, making it a convenient housing option for Tulanians working or studying at the School of Medicine, School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and School of Social Work.
This exciting new residential opportunity is Tulane’s first of many planned investments downtown. Thirteen15 will complement the space Tulane is leasing in the Charity Hospital redevelopment one block over. Tulane will also be rolling out streetscape enhancements and a number of other district initiatives designed to improve the campus experience downtown.
The property will be managed by The Domain Companies. Leasing has not yet begun. For additional information or to be added to a list of prospective tenants, visit www.thirteen15nola.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
