PROJECT LOCATION:

New Orleans, Louisiana


The Muses is an innovative urban residential development, replacing 4.8 acres of vacant land in Historic Central City in New Orleans, Louisiana. Boasting 263 apartments (1-4 bedroom units) in two 4-story buildings, it offers residents style, convenience and the opportunity to 'live green' through its LEED-Silver designation. The Muses was the first property of its kind to earn this bold designation in the state of Louisiana. White-Spunner Construction built The Muses to meet LEED standards by incorporating the following amenities/features:

  • Infill development with existing infrastructure on previously developed land near public transit
  • Compact density and reduced parking with permeable paving
  • Whole-building energy optimization and efficient appliances
  • Low- and no-VOC paints, sealants and adhesives
  • Direct outside venting of kitchens and bathrooms and highest-rated air filters

As The Muses proves, living green doesn't mean living without. Residents enjoy every modern convenience, including an on-site fitness center, two community rooms, private parking, two playgrounds, two grilling areas and wireless Internet access throughout the complex.
