The Urban Land Institute is hosting a tour of the new Bakery Village development in the Irish Channel.

Developer Nicole Webre purchased the site of the former Turnbull Bakery and is converting it in to 15 houses that match the historic character of the neighborhood.

Elizabeth Turnbull was the CEO and President of Turnbull Bakeries, Inc. from 1981 until she passed away in 2010. “I did not have the opportunity to meet Mrs. Turnbull,” says Nicole Webre, who purchased the property in July, “however, she has been described to me as a strong and sharp businesswoman who was a force to be reckoned with.”
