2051 Destrehan Ave


250′ by 500′ (street frontage is 250′, water frontage is 250′), for a total of 2.9 acres.

CONDITION: Well filled, stable property


Site has one entrance on Destrehan Avenue. The entrance is a 30′ double-gated standard driveway, set back from the street to allow for truck access. All utilities are available (electric, water and sewerage). Destrehan Avenue has recently been expanded to Four (4) lanes and extended from the WestBank Expressway to the Lafitte-Larose Highway. Truck and vehicle access has been greatly improved.
Of especial importance is that the property is on the secure side of both the West Closure Complex (world’s largest flood gate and pump station) and the Harvey Canal Sector Gate (flood gate at Lapalco Boulevard). The site is very well protected from any storm events.


Building “A” is 2,000 s/f of pure warehouse space. Minimal electricity and no water. Dimensions are approximately 20′ by 100′ for the building. Building is in fair condition. The foundation is a continuous pile supported chain wall with floating slab on grade in good condition. Excellent power available, and it is an excellent additional warehouse facility. The structure is pre-engineered steel with a painted corrugated metal exterior. Eave height in the warehouse is 12′ clear span.

Building “B” has 7,200 s/f. Approximately 1,500 of fully renovated office space and 5,700 s/f of warehouse space. Office roof has been reskinned. Warehouse has Three (3) sliding doors with a minimum 16’ clearance and an overall eave height of 20’. Building also has excellent power capabilities and an overhead (3 dimension) 5 ton crane. The property also has a new sewerage treatment plant. There is an additional out-building of approximately 15′ by 30′ that was a former rest room/storage facility. This out-building is in poor condition. However, the foundation for the main building is a pile supported reinforced concrete slab on grade in excellent condition. The structure is pre-engineered steel with a prefinished corrugated metal exterior and a partial brick facade front.


Property has 250′ of water frontage composed of cluster piles and riprap. The levee is adequately stable and wide enough to support shore equipment traversing the entire length (cranes for load outs). Site is well filled and slopes from the waterline to the street (drainage).


Site is zoned M-3, Heavy Industrial and is in an Enterprise Zone (thus available for certain tax credits and abatements).


Currently leased to a long term user.
