Cool Water Holdings is a property development company that has a mission to bring beauty and serenity to New Orleans by creating tranquil, and calming spaces for living, work, and play. We design and build properties that incorporate flowing water, natural light, and green elements, that seek to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor space. We bring nature indoors, while simultaneously drawing people outdoors with unique gardens and gathering spaces. Our developments pay homage to classical New Orleans architecture, while blending modern elements of concrete and steel. Warm woods and old brick add a rustic charm that ties the old with the new.
While these spaces are architecturally beautiful, practical, and uncluttered, they also have holistic qualities that appeal to the body, mind, and spirit. The fragrance of jasmine vines outside ushers one through the entrance, where one is greeted by subtle whole building aromatherapy, which changes with the seasons, and improves mood. Physical health is promoted through modern exercise facilities and bike storage, while quiet spaces welcome reflective and meditative though.
Technology, functionality, and security are woven into the projects in subtle ways, so that they provide students, professionals, and entrepreneurs with the tools necessary to accomplish their missions, while reducing the technological footprint on one’s life. Technology is a critical tool for remaining competitive, efficient, and creative, but it must blend into the environment, rather than taking center stage.
At Cool Water Holdings, we incorporate these elements into neighborhoods to support the small businesses and local vendors, who are the very fabric upon which the local economy is built. Thriving, local, small businesses that embrace their heritage and culture are crucial to the long-term viability of a community. Therefore, development must not only pay deep respect to that shared history, but also must look to the future and be ready to adapt to shifting landscape.
