Last week, the Historic District Landmarks Commission’s Architectural Review Committee shot down the newest proposal to build a new five-story Moxy hotel at 744 St. Charles Ave. .

Husband and wife developers Barry and Lorraine Dinvaut are seeking to develop a 96-room Moxy Hotel, which would incorporate a 5 story new construction building along with a historic building built in the 1940s.  Husband and wife Barry and Lorraine Dinvaut bought the building for $2,000,000 in 2013, and are working with Lenny Wormser of NAI/Latter & Blum to develop the building.

This was the third attempt by design team Campo Architects to come up with a design that satisfied the committee.  The development team has already been in front of the committee and revised their design several times, having originally proposed an eight-story building with a hotel, luxury condos, and retail/restaurant (Check out the plans).

Meanwhile, the other Moxy hotel in the CBD, the conversion of the former Quality Inn on O’Keefe, is coming along nicely.
