Will the redevelopment of the old Holy Cross into a mixed-use development ever happen?
It seems a bit less likely after a ruling this week by an Orleans Parish Civil District Court judge.
On Wednesday, Judge Piper Griffin found that the zoning change permitting the development was improperly filed and invalidated it it on a technicality.
It’s not clear whether the judge’s decision effectively kills the project or its just a minor set back. The city will likely try to forward an amended ordinance to the City Council to fix the issue. If it succeeds, the project could only be delayed by a few weeks.
Perez APC, the developer, has plans to redevelop the 13.2-acre site into mid-rise condo towers along the waterfront and retail on the ground floor.
