Plans have been filed with the City Planning Commission for a change in zoning to allow a small boutique hotel to take over the St Peter and Paul Church Complex. The complex is located on Burgundy Street between Marigny and Mandeville Streets. Unanimous approval was granted from the FMIA as well last month.
Also here is a copy of the letter that was sent to neighbors informing them of the different attributes of the plan:

The Faubourg Marigny Improvement Association (FMIA) was unanimous for conceptual approval only. There is opposition from some of the most-impacted neighbors with whom we are in ongoing discussions to get this as right as possible. FMIA is pro sensitive development and will actively mitigate negatives for residents as much as we can. Conceptual approval was predicated on two facts: terrible blight and the Henry Howard Church had to be stabilized, plus the neighborhood wants relief from illegal vacation rentals.
There was another plan, which never came to fruition, apartments and condos, with a whole new building, as well as sub-division of the church for residential units.
We’re always happy to welcome visitors to our General and/or Board meetings. Please go to faubourgmarigny.org for more information, meeting schedules, and to see the letter specifying Conceptual Approval.
