Earlier this year Martin Wine Cellar owner Cedric Martin came out with the news that the famed Baronne Street location would be re-opening by September of 2014.
Last week, Martin took another step in that direction by officially filling the construction permit with the city. The permit stated plans for the construction of a single story 14,025 square foot retail store at 3827 Baronne Street.
The application was filed last week by Martin Orleans Properties LLC, an entity controlled by Cedric Martin and the owner of the land. The total value for the building was stated to be $3 million.
Waggoner & Ball is the architect and F.H. Meyers Construction is the general contractor.
The original Baronne Street location has been closed since Katrina.
