One Shell Square
701 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 70139
One Shell Square, designed by the renowned architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, towers 51 stories high, earning it the distinction of being the tallest building in not only the city of New Orleans, but also the entire state.
The tower, containing 1,256,971 square feet, projects a stately and distinctive image with its natural colored Italian travertine and bronze glass exterior. One Shell Square has delivered the highest-quality office environment since its development in 1972, and has maintained its standard of excellence over time, as over $32 million has been spent since 2005 on major restorations and upgrades to both the interior and exterior of the building.
The property is situated in the heart of the thriving New Orleans CBD at the prominent intersection of Poydras Street and St. Charles Street. This prestigious business address offers unmatched access to important government buildings and courthouses and is also within walking distance to City Hall, the State Supreme Court and the Medical Center. The world-renowned French Quarter and trendy Warehouse District are only a few blocks away, as well as the entrance ramp to Interstate 10 (I-10), New Orleans’ major east-west thoroughfare.
Hertz Investment Group acquired this prestigious property in 2015.
