Woah, slow news week.
First, the vacant lot at Freret and Napoleon is under construction - should make a nice gateway to Freret if designed properly.
Second, the zigzag low rise at Guste is coming down.
Third, Charcoal on Magazine looks great!
Charcoal looks great. And yes it has been a slow news week.
I saw someone share this link on facebook saying that H and M is opening on Veterans...not sure where the facts came from though..
Sigh... Hoping for one at Riverwalk soon. A freestanding one on Canal would be great, but there aren't too many of those.
I'm looking forward to the Iberville projects coming down this December. I had some out of town friends in for the weekend and the condition of Canal St is embarrassing. The loitering, the low end businesses, the projects in close proximity, the seemingly bombed out Texaco building, etc. Although it is great to know the Texaco building will be under renovation soon. It's important for our image nationally and internationally during the Super Bowl to eliminate as much blight in 2012 as possible (Iberville, fix Texaco) among other things. I know we probably won't see much upgrading of the Canal St. retail, but another great step would be to have the Woolworth's building eliminated or u/c for the Kailas project.
What is the status update on that, or any other new developements on Canal that could be completed by year's end?
The Texaco renovation has been "starting soon" for years. I'll believe it when I see it.
I believe HANO and HUD still have to purchase the old Texaco building, and they will in turn sell it to Pres Kabacoff and HRI for redevelopment. HANO has not completed the purchase yet. Once that happens, I would expect to see redevelopment begin fairly quickly. They plan to have the project finished by the time demolition of the Iberville begins at the end of the year.
I have not heard anything about 1031 Canal recently. Has a demo and construction permit even been requested yet for the project?
