The New Orleans Redevelopment Fund has filed for a conditional use with the City that would allow it to convert a historic mid-city church into a 20 unit residential development.
The project calls for the conversion of the First United Baptist Church at 131 S. Jefferson Davis Parkway into 20 residential units, with the ability to add another 4 units in a second phase. The tax credit project proposes the demolition of an existing two-story brick accessory building on the site to allow for the creation of 28 parking spaces.
The site is currently zoned HU-RD2, which requires that the developers file for a Planned Development in order to build the desired project.
Albert Architecture is the architect, and Morphy Makofsky are the engineers.
The New Orleans Redevelopment Fund has worked on some other great projects in mid-city, currently have a condominium project nearby, and are raising a second fund for more projects.
