Last week, the Historic District Landmarks Commission’s Architectural Review Committee shot down the newest proposal to build a new five-story Moxy hotel at 744 St. Charles Ave. .
Husband and wife developers Barry and Lorraine Dinvaut are seeking to develop a 96-room Moxy Hotel, which would incorporate a 5 story new construction building along with a historic building built in the 1940s. Husband and wife Barry and Lorraine Dinvaut bought the building for $2,000,000 in 2013, and are working with Lenny Wormser of NAI/Latter & Blum to develop the building.
Meanwhile, the other Moxy hotel in the CBD, the conversion of the former Quality Inn on O’Keefe, is coming along nicely.
