The State of Louisiana released an RFP for the redevelopment of the Art-Deco Charity Hospital in Downtown New Orleans on Wednesday. This beautiful, historic, Art-Deco building has been vacant since 2005 when it was shuttered by Hurricane Katrina.
The state’s Request For Information describes the one million square foot property, refers the reader to a wealth of additional information and resources and can be found here.
The building qualifies for 25% state historic tax credits and the 20% federal historic tax credits.
Charity Hospital flooded in Katrina and has been out of operation ever since. There have been a million ideas on what to do with the building, everything from the Mayor’s idea to use it as a new City Hall to Pres Kabaoff’s idea for it to anchor a $1 billion revitalization effort of downtown New Orleans.
What would the best redevelopment options be for this monster of a project?
