2400 Annunciation St.
New Orleans, LA
This is one of the few remaining, iconic corner store/residences in New Orleans. Built in the late 1800’s, the building has gone through many changes, including the store appearing, disappearing and reappearing over the decades. The current store section of the building is from the early-to-mid 1900’s and is in reasonably good condition. Some parts of the residence are in a state of collapse while others are suffering from neglect with termites, trees and vines thriving and growing through the structure. The new design preserves the corner store and completely transforms the residence: widening it, adding a second floor, galleries and courtyard. The intention is to honor the historic neighborhood architecture and we are working closely with the New Orleans Historic District Landmarks Commission. Construction should begin late winter, 2020.
