I think this beautiful old building on Royal Street is about to receive a major facelift.

Looks like a place with “great bones” and plenty of details to work with.

I’ll have to go back in a few months to chart the progress!

  1. Do they have to follow historic code when doing work to these houses? Here in Santa Fe, NM, it is red tape like crazy to do work on a historic home. Not a bad thing for the most part. Can’t wait to see what they do to it! 🙂

    • Hi Katie,
      In the French Quarter I imagine that they have to follow historic code. Some parts of the city are designated historic and others aren’t. So you’re right – it’s much more complicated to renovate in an historic neighborhood.
