In September 2019, Mayer Building Company completed full renovations for both buildings at 3616 Magazine & 3624 Magazine inside & out at all residential spaces, additions, and exterior new construction and rehabilitations. We white-boxed the three commercial areas that storefront on Magazine for quick and easy build outs for the tenants that have already moved in. The building at 3616-3618 project included historic tax credits and was overhauled to proper commercial building code for mixed use occupancy. At 3624-26 we installed all new systems for “bringing it up to code” inclusive of a new fire sprinkler handicap ramp and custom metal hand/guard rails with finishes an applications that do not detract from this notable building’s presence on the famous corridor.The old crummy, residences are no more and new, spiffy apartments are in place. The new work though isn’t simple mindless re-iterations of contemporary design. While the new work incorporates the new, clean look attractive to modern renters or buyers, it also comprises (and embraces) many salvage elements restored to beauty and functionality. We saved and re-installed old cypress doors and iron rim locks, antique floors and panels, brick and stucco chimneys, and most fun: wood balconies and rails. As the aging stock on Magazine Street continually gets redeveloped and repaired, there is a dwindling and finite number of historic and interesting properties that require these types of renovations. We are very happy to have been a part of this one. It is satisfying work. Photos by Fred Goodrow Sr.
Recently our commercial construction project came to a successful completion, and we are open for business. I appreciate the efforts of Mayer Building Company in getting my premium coffee shop open early.
I brag about you and your people all of the time.. I get constant compliments on the building! Recently our commercial construction project came to a successful completion, and we are open for business. I appreciate the efforts of Mayer Building Company in building out our new offices on time and within budget.
Thanks again for a job well done! We have completed over 30 Cyclebars across the country in the past year. The New Orleans (Magazine Street) site was not only one of the best but working with Mayer exceeded all expectations. I look forward to future work with the Mayer Team.
Y’all did such a nice job. Thank you so much for your careful work. You’ve helped transform our space!
I just want to thank you and your staff for going above and beyond during this build out process. With us being in a different city, y’all have been awesome to work with. Y’all have accommodated every change within our construction window and have helped us greatly on things that couldn’t have gotten done without you and your staff’s help. Thanks so much. It is greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much for doing such a great job. The rooms look great and the inconvenience to us was minimal at worst. Your personnel was friendly and easy to work with. Fred was really great. We are very pleased with the result. Thank you and I hope to work with you again on another project.
I was concerned about doing a renovation at a place that was many states away from where I lived. I needed someone that I could count on and could handle every aspect of the renovation. I also required someone who was familiar with the permit requirements for an historical building in New Orleans….I would highly recommend Ryan Mayer to any potential client. I was extrememly pleased with the work he performed and would use him again for any additional contracting needs that I may have.
We are always excited to partner up with MBC to work on our new location developments or redesigns,
as we can always count on quality, timeliness, and most importantly, the right level of communication
in the client relationship.
As we grow City Greens, we look forward to working with the Mayer Building Company in the very near future.
It is with pleasure, and of my own initiative, I am writing this letter of gratitude
for the work you and your company performed at 4905-11 Magazine Street.
As the architect of that renovation, I worked closely with you, your superintendent
Fred Goodrow, and your staff during the months of construction. Your knowledge, experience, and good judgement, and that of your
employees, were critical in addressing these issues and contributed significantly
to the successful completion of the work.
Both the building owner and I are very proud of the results and are grateful to
you and your staff for a job very well done. I sincerely look forward to the next
time it is my good fortune to work with you.
