Poydras Residental Tower

930 Poydras Residential Tower, New Orleans, Louisiana

The French Quarter in New Orleans is one of the most historic and famous downtown neighborhoods in America. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck - ravaging the city and bringing people’s lives and economic development to a standstill. Five years later, in 2010, Brian Gibbs Development teamed up with architects from Eskew+Dumez+Ripple to bring the 930 Poydras Residential Tower to life, marking the first residential high-rise construction in downtown New Orleans since the infamous hurricane. 

Constructed as a paragon of modern design and community focus, the 21-story tower features highly articulated metal paneling painted in Valspar Fluropon coating in Blue Gray. The metal panels cover the building in an asymmetrical pattern and bracket long, narrow windows that contribute to the building’s contemporary façade. With its high-durability and luminous color adhesion, Valspar’s Fluropon coating provides 930 Poydras with a functioning aesthetic that mirrors the strength and resilience of New Orleans’ people.
