The proposed Mid-City strip mall anchored by a CVS pharmacy at 500 N. Carrollton will now keep a portion of the old Home Depot building, according to an article by our friends at Mid-City Messenger.

Originally, the Rouses Land Company proposed plans for the demolition of the entire building, which was to include tenants like CVS, TMobile and Petco.  They changed their plans, however, to get approval from the Neighborhood Conservation District Advisory Committee.  On Monday April 6, the Committee approved the changes.

Neighbors have been up in arms over the proposed development for lacking imagination, and essentially building a boring big-box retail strip mall in a historic neighborhood right next to the Lafitte Greenway.  Check out this page and read the comments to get a full breadth of the disappointment.

The site is directly across from Stirling Properties’ Mid-City Market shopping development and a Winn Dixie.
