This past Saturday, my friend and real estate agent Zuheily from NOLA Living Realty invited me to her first solo listing. She knew there was no way I could afford this particular property, but she also knew how smitten I am with classic New Orleans architecture and the open house […]
The Greater New Orleans Foundation brings new life to the once-derelict Lee Circle with its Center for Philanthropy, a cutting edge, 22,000 square foot building designed by local architectural firm Waggonner & Ball. Eighteen months and $13 million later, a corner once blighted by an abandoned Shell gas station is […]
As housing prices rise in New Orleans, gorgeous classic homes float ever further from my financial reach. Finding a house that hasn’t had the culture renovated out of it is also becoming more and more difficult, but once in a while I’ll stumble upon a real beauty.
The more I look at houses for sale, the more I am disappointed by the culture-eradicating renovations I discover. Developers and contractors are tearing the heart and soul out of New Orleans’ architecture and it honestly makes me want to weep. While I appreciate some new design, there’s a lot […]
