The first views of the mixed use Port Marigny Project in Mandeville were released this week. The project involves converting the 78-acre pre-stress concrete site on the Mandeville’s lakefront into a residential and commercial community. The Mandeville City Council should have a final vote on the project by the end of the year. The main concern so far seems to be increased traffic.
Residential plans call for 192 apartments, 57 cottages, 52 single-family village homes, 52 townhouses, 48 single-family neighborhood homes, 28 condominium units.
Commercial improvements will include a 120-room hotel adjacent to the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway along with a marina with 150 boats slips able to accommodate boats of up to 55 feet. There would be also be 60,000 square-feet of retail and office space.
