The Beacon is pre-leasing one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments and penthouses in the heart of the South Market District, Downtown New Orleans.

New Orleans, LA – The Domain Companies has announced pre-leasing at The Beacon, the much-anticipated luxury apartment building located in the South Market District, Downtown New Orleans. The Beacon features 124 one- and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses, 20,000 square feet of retail space, and proximity to some of the city’s best restaurants, shops and entertainment.

“The South Market District has quickly become the place to live Downtown for residents seeking a unique, modern home in one of New Orleans’ most rapidly growing neighborhoods,” said Matt Schwartz, Principal of The Domain Companies. “The Beacon will build on the services, amenities and access that South Market residents expect, providing an experience unlike anything else Downtown.”

The Beacon’s architecture and interiors have been designed by locally-based, AIA award winning firm Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, including a distinctive architectural feature: a colorful, public staircase along Girod Street that creates a shaded gathering space among South Market’s shops and restaurants. Residents will be greeted by a 24-hour concierge welcoming them to the spacious, artful lobby. In addition to an inviting resident lounge and media center, an outdoor rooftop courtyard will allow residents to gather and entertain with a full kitchen, bar, media wall and seating area surrounded by skyline views. The Beacon’s fitness offerings include a fully-equipped fitness center, in addition to on-site cycling and yoga studio, Higher Power.

‘Green’ features incorporated throughout The Beacon include smoke-free residences and indoor/outdoor amenity areas, sustainable design practices, and Energy Star-rated appliances that result in healthier homes and lower utility bills. The property also features free high-speed Wi-Fi in apartments and amenity areas, docking stations for a personalized music experience, and a resident app for rent payments, maintenance requests, packages and other services.

The Beacon’s apartments offer a diverse range of layouts, with all units featuring light-filled spaces with large windows, 10’ ceilings and hardwood floors.  Designer lighting, finishes, fixtures and custom cabinetry are incorporated throughout, in addition to full-size washers and dryers, dishwashers, microwaves and built-in closets in each apartment. Many apartments provide unobstructed city and river views, and The Beacon can also offer fully-furnished corporate apartments.

Residents become members of the ‘MyDomain’ program, which provides automated payment options, a simple maintenance request process, exclusive neighborhood discounts and specials, unique resident events, and more. The ‘MyCommunity’ program allows new residents to select from a list of non-profits to which Domain makes a contribution on their behalf, facilitating additional donations and volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

Residents also receive priority access to the services and amenities available in the South Market District, including secure on-site bike storage, and access to The Paramount at South Market’s pool and The Park at South Market’s secure garage parking and bicycle (Zagster) and car-sharing (Enterprise CarShare) programs.

The Beacon at South Market is located at 1000 Girod Street in Downtown New Orleans and will be ready for occupancy in March 2016. Rents start at $1,700 for a one-bedroom, $2,300 for a two-bedroom, and $6,500 for a penthouse.
