520 Natchez - demolition of the building and stabilization of the facade (site to be used for parking)
The property proposed for demolition with the stabilization of the facade at this month’s CBD HDLC meeting, is part of “Natchez Alley,” a row of three-story brick buildings built as commercial space in 1851. They have significant details, with ground-level granite pillars, cornices with dentils, and granite trim. According to the 1854 Merchant’s Directory, these stores were once occupied by a wine importer, commission merchants, a tobacco merchant, a coffee broker, a produce broker, and a ship broker–an important piece of the CBD’s rich architectural and commercial past.
