Tracage, the 16 story high rise luxury building which finally broke ground last month after years of controversy, was stopped last wee after a court injunction was issued to halt construction until a new lawsuit filed against the city is resolved.
The new lawsuit is the most recent attempt to prevent the construction by the residents at the neighboring Lengsfield Lofts.
A previous lawsuit filed years ago was filed against the city for issuing the original building permit. The lawsuit made it all the way to the Louisiana Supreme Court, which sided with the city in its approval of the project. The delay, however, temporarily the project.
Developer Anthony “TJ” Iarocci went back to the drawing board, reducing the scope of the project, and finally received city approval for the new plans.
