2018 Awards for Excellence in Historic Preservation


http://www.louisianalandmarks.org/pr...c-preservation


heres a few interesting projects!





The Academy (820 Dauphine)



William R. Legier, Jr., developer; Trapolin-Peer Architects, APC; Melissa Legier Designs, interior designer; Woodward Design+ Build; Chris Chain (RMI Construction) and Richard Dedeaux Construction, contractors; Hilary Irvin, historic consultant

Since 1867, the corner of Dumaine and Dauphine figured prominently for educating the neighborhood's Catholic youth. The existing complex, which in 1949 replaced earlier structures, today is deemed a fine example of the mid-20th-century French Quarter revival style, recognized as contributory to the Vieux Carré National Register District. In this rehabilitation for residential use, the development team retained historic millwork, glazed block walls, and corridor configurations. A rooftop apartment was added atop the convent wing, set back from the parapet and subtly tucked between the school block and convent stair tower.






Artspace Bell (2100 Ursulines)



The Bell School Limited Partnership, owner; Gibbs Construction; Providence Community Housing, development partner, Morphy Makofsky, Inc., engineering; Looney Ricks Kiss/LRK, LLC, Billes Partners, LLC, and Roderick A. Fifield, architects

The Bell Artspace Campus project transformed six structures comprising the former Andrew J. Bell and Ben Franklin Schools into seventy-nine live-work housing units with ancillary uses. Geared toward low to moderate income artists, cultural workers and their families, this vast project, which ecnompasses two blocks, contributes greatly toward the encouragement of continuing cultural and ethnic diversity in the Faubourg Tremé, a neighborhood noted for its historic multiplicity. Vacant for thirteen years, the site now thrives as a community of engaged residents, all while meeting criteria for obtaining historic preservation tax credits.





G. O. Mondy School Apartments (2327 St. Philip)




Neville Development, owner; HCI Architecture and Design, Roderick A. Fifield Architect, LLC; Palmisano Group, contractor

Constructed in 1897 in the Tremé historic district, George O. Mondy Elementary had remained vacant since 2005 The current owner acquired the abandoned school in 2015 with plans for rehabilitation into affordable apartments for seniors. The building was carefully rehabilitated as such, with significant portions of the original interiors restored and damaged elements were replaced appropriately. Importantly, the caretaker's cottage, which was targeted by the city for demolition, was included in the renovation project. The building now continues to honor the legacy of its namesake, George O. Mondy, the first African-American to serve on the New Orleans Fire Department.





Inn at the Old Jail (2552 St. Philip)




Liz and Raul Canache, owners; LK Harmon Architects; Bernardio Marcia, contractor

Vacant since Hurricane Katrina and owned by the City of New Orleans in 2010 when named to Lousiana Landmarks Society's New Orleans' Nine Most Endangered Sites, this striking 1902 Queen Anne style structure, which housed a Police Jail and Patrol Center, was a victim of extreme demolition by neglect. In 2013, the building was auctioned to the winning owners, whose plans to turn the property into a bed and breakfast establishment were unanimously approved by the City Planning Commission in 2015. The Old Jail now operates as an inn to be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.




St. Thomas and Ninth Street



Saint Thomas 9, LLC, owner; OJT (Office of Jonathan Tate), architect; Edifice Builders, contractor; Spackmann, Mossop and Michaels, landscape architects

This new construction and rehabilitation project provided an innovative and successful approach of contemporary infill providing twelve homes--nine new construction units and three in an existing warehouse structure. Leveraging the density allowed for multi-family development in this transitioning industrial edge, the site is organized as single-family assemblage, in which the individual homes “fit together” in massing that respects and reflects the scale and character of its Irish Channel industrial/residential mixed neighborhood. The approach required a subversion of the conventional legal structure, which usually applies individual ownership to the interior of one unit.

Whatever happened to the "French Bistro" that was supposed to go in the Dave & Busters development? I bet the owner saw how terrible the design turned out and backed out! There's nothing even rumored to be going in there anymore.

i dont disagree worst part is the owner of the french bistro is a chef at the hyatt which is the same owners as the garage.. they really shot themselves in the foot there... really shortsighted value engineering it the way that they did... they had an oppurtunity to really activate that corner but blew it

The lack of development shows they blew it. It's been open almost a year now and nothing.

Tennis, since this is on subject anyway, for all the people who want to demo this section of I-10, I really don't understand what their plan is with all the traffic...

I think the idea of demoing I-10 was shot down because the studies showed that the traffic would worsen significantly. The biggest opponent was the port and its various shippers.

the ideas all but dead and it should be... it simply would make the situation worse... this is the best strategy.. take what you think is an eyesore and make it the focal point... so i think the proposal is a good first step

I think if they would just change the horrid blush and yellow paint colors to something which compliments the rest of the building it wouldn't be so goddamn ugly...

Speaking of Chipotle, I've heard that Magazine is on hold.
New expansions frozen. They have a 10 year lease so it may be a while before anything happens. They have not backed out but are awaiting for the finances of the company itself to improve. Possibly could open it up in a year or two or sublease.

That so bizarre... fight hard for a place and then not open right away? Im not sure chipotles situation is going to be any better going forward either ... company has definitely fallen out of favor

Nah apartments would not be noteworthy at all.
This will be a mixed use quasi-destination project.
Something which would pull tourists as well as locals to that section of Canal.
