The owner of 533 Iberville Street in the French Quarter has filed plans to convert the 6-story building into condominiums.
Stephen Stumpf, the owner of 817 Hickory Avenue, LLC, the entity that owns the building, filed a permit for the conversion on August 6. Stumpf is also the CEO of Durr Heavy Construction.
The scope of work includes an entire conversion of the 6-story concrete structure into condos. The 1st floor will become parking, with one condo unit each on floors 2 through 4.
The 5th and 6th floor will be combined into a single two-story unit.
A portion of the roof is to built out with a roof patio, and the elevator is to be extended up to serve the roof terrace.
All of the windows will be replaced with new aluminum windows in the style and character of the existing. Some existing windows are to be filled in, and some new window openings are to be created. These locations are limited to the sides of the building. A new balcony and exterior stair is to be added at the rear of the building.
The exterior will receive new plaster, and the front parapet will be restored to its original arched shape. New gas lanterns are to be added to the exterior.
The building was built in 1955 and has about 15,300 square feet.
