Judgmental Map of New Orleans, SOFAB Opening is Imminent, & More

Welcome to Curbed Cuts, where Curbed NOLA editor April Siese shares the best real estate and neighborhood news of the week.

EVERYWHERE — The Judgmental map of New Orleans is here and we couldn't be more humored or feel more judged. Check out how your neighborhood compares to the ugliest place in the city (Upper Ninth Ward) or Jazz Fest (Gentilly).

UPTOWN: Get ready to bid. The first-ever Habitat for Humanity ReStore art auction hits Coq Rogue Gallery this Saturday. Food, booze, and entertainment abound, along with gorgeous pieces made with materials from the ReStore.

GARDEN DISTRICT: Edgar Degas' maternal uncle once had a house on Coliseum and Third. This nearly 165 year old Italianate mansion was built by the famed James Gallier and hits the market for $2.9M. Amenities include an equally historic cistern and stable. Oh, and everything is pink.

CBD: Yet another hotel is coming to the CBD. The former Bonded Carbon and Ribbon headquarters at 744 St Charles is fast becoming a nine story hotel with a restaurant and rooftop penthouse. Its next challenge? Getting past the area's height requirements.

GARDEN DISTRICT: If you're short on creativity but have $175K to spend, you may want to check out 1920 Delachaise. The former residence of award-winning cinematographer JWJ Ferguson, this Victorian is busting out with added bedrooms and a need for love of the creative, handy variety.

CENTRAL CITY: SOFAB's opening is imminent. As in, its ribbon-cutting is this coming Monday at 1pm. Celebrate its new digs at 1504 O.C Haley and do check out its special grand opening offerings that include a lecture and culinary master classes with California Cuisine pioneer Jeremiah Tower.
