A former mechanics shop that’s been vacant and abandoned on the corner of Carondelet and Calliope Streets (next to the Pontchartrain Expressway overpass) is being developed into a brand spanking new Alack Superstore, a restaurant supply company, reports Curbed.
The city issued building permits for the buildings last week. A recent sale shows that Alack Properties paid 4 Z’s Ventures, LLC $1 million for the 26,000-square-foot property last month.
The new 25,000 sqaure foot store will sell items at retail and contain a demonstration kitchen for taking classes and attending shows by guest chefs.
J&W Construction of Harvey is the general contractor for the project, and H&H Engineering of Covington is the structural engineer. Holly and Smith Architects designed the project.
Founded in 1970, Alack is a full-service supply company for the restaurant and food service industry. The location will offer layout and design, equipment specifications, sales and installation services, and equipment and furnishings.
Alack also provides restaurant supplies, equipment, kitchen supplies and equipment, cooking supplies, and small wares, flatware, chain food service, and kitchen design.
