LTPG has extensive experience in various adaptive re-use and tax credit developments.  LTPG has always stayed on the cutting edge of financing structures by constantly monitoring new legislation and working closely with industry professionals to stay educated on their complexities. 

In the late 1980’s Stewart Juneau entered the Low Income Housing Tax Credits markets and completed the first LIHTC deal in the State of Louisiana with its Westchase Apartments in New Orleans.  Throughout the 1990’s LTPG developed and managed over 4,000 LIHTC units throughout the State and is considered as one of the pioneers of the industry.

Also, in the latter part of the 1990s, opening in 2000, LTPG redeveloped the old Maison Blanche Building and 4 other historic buildings located on famous Canal Street in New Orleans, LA into a luxury hotel complex anchored by a 450 room Ritz-Carlton.  Originally built in 1901, the building was operating as an office building with the bottom three floors being occupied by its namesake department store, Maison Blanche.  The project coupled bond financing with Historic Tax Credit Equity and a Façade Donation and consists of 3 separate luxury hotels including the Ritz-Carlton, Iberville Suites and the ultra high-end Maison Orleans boutique hotel which now serves as a Ritz-Carlton Club.  In addition to the hotels, the complex also contains a large spa, commercial space, a 450 space parking garage and a private penthouse owned by Stewart Juneau which offers the best views (and parties…) to be found anywhere in the City.  A complete description of the Ritz-Carlton – New Orleans can be found at www.ritzcarlton.com/en/properties/neworleans/.

Beginning 2008 and into 2009 LTPG provided development and general contracting services to All Saints Episcopal School in Vicksburg, MS to convert the closed boarding school into a regional training and respite facility for AmeriCorps, a governmental volunteer organization.  The project involved renovating the historic structures and other campus amenities in conjunction with negotiating a lease of the facilities by the US Governmental Accounting Office for use by AmeriCorps.  Through LTPG’s vision, leadership and expertise the school staved off bankruptcy and was restored to its original beauty and spirit, with the noble purpose of community service throughout the Gulf Coast.  Additional information on AmeriCorps can be found online at www.americorps.gov.

Most recently LTPG provided development and construction management services to Goodwill Industries, for which Stewart Juneau sits on the Board of Directors.  The development utilized New Markets Tax Credits generated by applying insurance proceeds from Hurricane Katrina and traditional bank debt through a local Community Development Entity.  This allowed Goodwill to fund a $15,000,000 adaptive reuse of an abandoned grocery store into their new corporate headquarters and flagship retail store to service all of Southeastern Louisiana.  Find out more about Goodwill’s mission at www.goodwillno.org.

In 2007, LTPG was hired by a large ownership group in the Dominican Republic to provide master planning and development feasibility analysis for a large traditional neighborhood and resort development, SanSouci, in Santo Domingo, DR.  The project was not ultimately developed due to global financial market restraints; however it held a projected improved land value of $300M.  LTPG has acted in a similar capacity for other large scale resort developments throughout the Central American and Caribbean including Panama and the Bahamas.


LTPG recently completed Harbour Village at Historic St. Andrews located in Panama City, Florida.  Harbour Village is located directly along the shores of historic St. Andrew Bay and consists of 116 units, approximately 12,000 square feet of commercial space and a 37-slip private marina.  Construction completed in early 2007 and 112 of the 116 units have been sold and closed, with the remaining 4 units being held for investment.
