Victory Theatre : National WWII Museum expansion project update. This project is comming along nicely. About 60-70% complete. I believe this is still set to open late summer.













This is the complete expansion to be done by 2014

The National WWII Museum can be seen from the CC Connection and will definitely makes its mark on the Warehouse District skyline.

I believe the wavy roof in the center has been cancelled. The other buildings are still going ahead, though.

I just walked past that guy yesterday on a long hike up Tulane Avenue. I was really surprised by the amount of new development there.... of course, all but the Terraces is being done by one company (Domain Cos.). I really hope Domain sticks around in the New Orleans market and continues to develop properties. Nobody else wants to do anything in this city.

Updated job site pics from 930 Poydras and La Cancer Research Center. Found these on Emporis. They may be from Ardecila, I know he is a photographer for emporis. If so, great work man!! 930 poydras really comming along, they are now on the 7th floor. Also the site of the new State Office Building highrise comming along. They have completely torn down the 3 story building on the site and now are working on demolishing the 8 story building.

Yea, those are mine. Good to know somebody is looking at them.

I walked past the demolition site the other day. That was cool to see just how fast it came down once all the interior stuff was removed. I have pictures, I'll get them up later.

I also have pictures of the stuff along Tulane Ave.

The Meridian - Not sure if this is under construction yet. Just off Tulane ave behind the Crescent Club. Its the third project of the Domain Co. (The Preserve, Crecscent Club). Also a map to summarize all the new housing along Tulane ave.

http://www.thedomaincos.com/current_...ils_dev_16.htm






Domain Cos. also planning to build 15,000 square feet of retail on Tulane avenue across from the Crescent Club.

Tragace on hold until market improves...but still planning on going forward. Article sounds promising. They have won the lawsuit that was filed against them.

UNO foundation building to be bought and renovated into apartments and office space. Good news, this building is right on Canal street.

Thank god. I have classes in the Tulane-owned Murphy Oil Building right next door, and I know first-hand that the UNO building is an embarrassing shithole. (Admittedly, it's not as bad as the Texaco Building across Canal....)

The article talks about getting a National Registry listing. That seems a little unlikely, but hopefully it means that the building will be restored in a way that is sympathetic to its Modernist design. Unfortunately, it also rules out the kind of cool re-cladding that some of these mid-century buildings have been receiving in other cities.

Good news about Tracage as well.

I think the texaco building has a good chance of being renovated into apts or condos if the new lsu/va hospital gets done. Its in very close proximity to the purposed site. Also the Krauss condos are a few blocks down and the reports are that their units sold very well even without the hospital. Might be a few years before anything happens though.

Good. I thought that design was kind of ridiculous... totally out of place in the warehouse district neighborhood.

New Orleans is lookin good.
