New Orleans Advocate: Greenway: On resurgent Lafitte corridor, an industrial relic gains new life

When the Morreale family built the Tulane Industrial Laundry back in the 1940s, the area surrounding the business at St. Louis and North Dorgenois streets was largely industrial and commercial.

The giant pumping station on North Broad and a Schwegmann’s supermarket anchored the area, where plumbing supply warehouses and auto repair shops mingled.

After 10 years of vacancy following Hurricane Katrina, the old laundry building is on the brink of a new life as a mixed-use development featuring commercial space on the ground floor and 12 apartments above, thanks to a multimillion-dollar project by GCE Green Development.
