The Hennen Building, also known as the Maritime Building, briefly branded the Latter & Blum Building, is an 11-story, 158 feet (48 m)-tall skyscraper in New Orleans, Louisiana USA. A Registered Historic Place, the building is located at 800 Common Street at the uptown lake corner with Carondelet Street, in the New Orleans Central Business District. The building is New Orleans' first and oldest skyscraper, holding the title of the city's tallest building from 1895-1904.
The building was sold in November 2006 to architect/developer Marcel Wisznia. Historically an office building, in September 2009, Wisznia | Architecture + Development initiated the renovation and conversion into a mixed-use building with two floors of commercial space below 105 luxury apartments. Wisznia utilized both state and federal historic tax credits along with new markets tax credits to realize the project, as part of the revitalization of the New Orleans' Central Business District.
