Yesterday (June 23), theCity Planning Commission blessed a proposed development that would convert an old brewery at the corner of Elysian Fields Avenue and Chartres Street into an 10,800-square-foot theater called Trash Palace.
Developers Gregor Fox and Jennifer Taylor plan to turn the old building into a large theater event space, plus office and retail. The property had 26 parking spaces, but zoning required 67 more spots. The commission voted to waive that requirement.
Apparently the theater will have seats and a stage that can be moved around to accommodate different types of functions. There is a maximum limit of 600 people.
Donald Manginnis is the architect.
