The Passes at Pontchartrain

Posted on: January 15th, 2018 by Davidson Charles

This property, located at the mouth of Lake Pontchartrain, is a tremendous development opportunity. Lying between Chef Menteur Pass on the south, and The Rigolets Pass on the north, with immediate access to the areas famous fishing and hunting, re-development prospects are excellent. Over 1,600 acres of owned marsh are part of this property, allowing for private hunting club or mitigation bank opportunity. An existing marina operating on the property on Chef Pass provides additional base infrastructure to speed the development process. All this within minutes of the dining and nightlife available only in New Orleans.

Location: This property is within the city limits of New Orleans. Downtown and the French Quarter are an easy drive away at +25 miles. New Orleans Lakefront Airport (6,880 runway) is full service and convenient, at approximately 20 miles away. US Highway 90 fronts the much of acreage. Views from this area are protected by the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge, across Chef Pass and Bayou de Lesaire.

Wildlife: With the 610 square mile brackish estuary Lake Pontchartrain connecting to Lake Borgne to the south through the Chef Menteur and Rigolets passes which bracket this property, this area is prime for speckled trout, redfish, and flounder. Plenty of marsh drains and lakes provide prime fishing spots on/along the property, with great spring and fall fishing in the open waters of adjoining Lake St. Catherine and Pontchartrain. The Biloxi Marsh is a short boat ride away.

Duck hunting in this part of Louisiana is known for primarily for teal, widgeon, gadwall, pintails, and divers. Helping hold birds in the area is the neighboring +25,000 acre Bayou Sauvage NWR, which wraps a large part of the property.

History: This property lies in an area with a rich history. The Rigolets was the international border between Spanish, French, and American Louisiana and British and Spanish West Florida from the 1760s through the early 1800s.

Following the War of 1812, brick forts were built on both The Rigolets and Chef Menteur Pass to guard New Orleans from attack via Lake Pontchartrain. Fort Macomb is across Chef Pass, while Fort Pike is just north of the marsh acreage bordering The Rigolets.

At Chef Menteur Pass, the oldest hunting and fishing club in the country, the Tally Ho Club, is a neighbor. This club was founded in 1815.

The family of the current owners acquired this property over 100 years ago. The land along Highway 90 was once home to many waterfront weekend houses and fishing cabins. Nearby areas have been largely rebuilt. This property represents the last bulk opportunity of its type between these two passes.
