Today the New Orleans City Council denied the proposals to demolish 1222 Bartholomew St. in Bywater. Kudos to the City Council, who recognized the renovation potential in this “cute” shotgun house. Thanks to everyone that wrote Councilmembers and expressed their position on this demolition.

We join the City Council in encouraging the owner of this house to sell to someone that will undertake this renovation project. If you or if someone you know is interested in taking on this renovation project,  contact PRC staff HERE and we will be happy to help you reach out to the current owner of the house. You can watch the City Council hearing online HERE.
