• The Harvey Canal Limited Partnership was founded by the descendants of Joseph Harvey and Louise Destrehan. As Captain Harvey and his wife Louise were the original builders of the Harvey Canal, building a private commercial waterway (originally only as wide as a pirogue) that eventually became an integral part of the United States Intracoastal Waterway System, the Partners have a deep and abiding sense of history and the importance of the Harvey Canal to the development and continued operation of the Maritime and Oil & Gas Industries. That focus still exists today and will continue into the future.
  • The Harvey Canal is the gateway to the Gulf. Any fabricator, vessel operator, supplier or other operator located on the Harvey Canal can have a safe and hurricane protected Facility for undisturbed and continuous operations. The Harvey Canal provides easy access to the Gulf either through the river locks and the Mississippi River or through the Bayous and shipping channels. Access to “Blue Water” is unparalled. Your growth potential is unlimited.

Developers and Managers of Heavy Industrial Commercial Real Estate since 1898

The Harvey Canal was founded to facilitate trade and Maritime traffic. That mandate continues and has even grown. As the Oil & Gas industry was developed, the Harvey Canal was the most logical area for those Heavy Industrial operations to locate. All of South Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico are serviced by the Harvey Canal.

Heavy Industrial

M-3 zoned Heavy Industrial properties. Strongest zoning available for manufacturing/fabrication operations. Areas available from 1 to 20 acres. Improvements on site or custom built.

C-2 Commercial zoning. Raw land for development of high density retail operations.

Featured Area

Harvey Canal Area

Being located in South Louisiana, the Harvey Canal is in an area of generally good weather. This equates to less down time for personnel, equipment and/or outdoor fabrication work. Productivity is always greater in areas with weather that allows unimpeded operations.
