The Domain Companies, the developers behind the trendy Ace Hotel, are opening another hotel downtown.
Maison de la Luz is set to open next spring with 67 rooms at 546 Carondelet St., at the site of a former City Hall annex and law office building. It’s directly behind Gallier Hall and across Lafayette Street from the firm’s other project, the Ace Hotel, which in 2016 converted an Art Deco-style building at 600 Carondelet St. into a 234-room hotel targeted at younger travelers.
For Maison de la Luz, The Domain Companies partnered again with Atelier Ace, the agency behind the Ace Hotel.
The Domain Companies also is developing the $500 million South Market District, a five-block, mixed-use neighborhood in the Central Business District that includes luxury apartments, condos, 200,000 square feet of retail and 1,300 garage parking spaces.
