CBD – Add another downtown residential development to the ever-growing list. This building on Carondelet Street will be eight rental units with a ground floor space available for a restaurant or retail set-up. Apparently, the Filipino pop-up, Milkfish, had its eyes on this prize. Check it out.
FRENCH QUARTER – Gennifer Flowers, best known for blabbing about her affair with Bill Clinton, once called this 2,700-square foot condo home. There was a hefty price chop over the weekend, bringing it down to $975K.
CITY-WIDE – Developer and HRI CEO, Pres Kabacoff, has a $1B (yes, billion) plan to transform the city. In one of those "you have to read it to believe it" cases, it involves a hyperbaric chamber in a wing of the abandoned Charity Hospital, a 300,000-square foot shopping center on Canal, and more.
TREME – An abandoned, graffiti-bombed school just got the okay to move forward with plans to turn the campus into artist live/work spaces. The $40M renovation also includes a performance venue and 45,000-square feet of green space.
