Developer Josh Bruno hopes his latest development, the Granaio Lofts, can begin construction in the warehouse district at 1035 Tchoupitoulas following what could be some of the last red tape he has to get through with the City of New Orleans.
Bruno believes the development has received an improper denial from the Historic District Landmarks Commission (HDLC), the regulatory agency in New Orleans for historic district landmarks outside of Vieux Carre.
After six months of research, Bruno and his team released an eight page appeal to the agency, which he will present at at hearing today, Thursday April 24, 2014 at 11:00 AM in the City Council Chambers.
In the document, Bruno makes his case for Granaio, citing that the development is beneficial to New Orleans through six categories: city betterment, economic growth, increased security, job creation, neighborhood benefits and community support.
In an email to supporters, Bruno wrote, “We believe strongly that to continue the growth and expansion of New Orleans, we need to adapt our same freedom of thinking with our ways of life, music and art and adapt that same level of creativity in our architecture and city environment.”
