Last Summer news broke that Arnold Kirshman was planning a redevelopment of the block on Freret that long housed Frank’s Steakhouse as well as other businesses, called The Faubourg Freret. You can read our previous articles on the development and demolitions here, here and here.
The Faubourg Freret is a new mixed use development on Freret Street with 13,300+ SF of ground floor retail space and 30+ apartments on upper floors. The development will include the redevelopment of historic structures as well as new construction.
All retail spaces will have 15 foot high ceilings, clear span layouts, service alleys, low operating costs, and all the modern day amenities retailers desire. The listing quotes a rent of $30-35 per square foot triple net.

Development plans were recently filed with the city, and one of the noteworthy items in the plans is that a future residential building is also planned along Cadiz Street. Overall, this development will be transformative for the neighborhood.
