First Bank and Trust Tower
909 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 70112
Standing apart from its local and regional counterparts, First Bank and Trust Tower is a trophy, 36-story office tower with 545,000 square feet.
The property is located in the heart of the city, centered along the ‘Poydras Corridor’, just blocks south of the French Quarter and north of the trendy Warehouse District. First Bank and Trust Tower is within a short walking distance to other office buildings, governmental offices and courthouses, including The Federal Building, Civil Court, Court of Appeals and City Hall.
Built in 1987, First Bank and Trust Tower’s design creates a beautiful exterior with vertical bands of mahogany-colored, flamed-finished Dakota granite alternating with bronze-tinted glass. The building’s distinctive shape, which culminates in a truncated pyramid rooftop, presents a strong silhouette to the surrounding neighborhood. The building’s design is further enhanced by an elaborate lighting system boldly emphasizing the building’s entire structure at dusk. A colonnade of oak trees, walkway of natural stone material and large bronze statues on both sides of the front entrance enhance the office tower’s street level appeal.
Hertz Investment Group acquired this prestigious property in 2005.
