Bayou St. John High-End Development Work to Start This Spring

Crews will start work this spring tearing down empty warehouses along a stretch of the Lafitte Greenway in Mid-City where investors have proposed a high-end housing and retail development. Sidney Torres IV, owner of IV Capital, the venture capital group behind the proposal, said Wednesday (Feb. 24) that plans for the development still need to be finalized and vetted by the community, but he is optimistic construction could start before the end of this year.

    You must always be optimistic, above all else!

    As Paul says, I do not know if it’s good or bad. Destroy one thing to another, even if it seems harmless, will be holding something.

    I hope it works. :)

    good news or bad news??? very bad news to me. a new development there will destroy the beautiful landscape of bayou St john, and leave carbon print that takes at least 100 years to be erased.
    the could use the Lindy Boggs abandoned hospital to build new housing spots.
    Please dont ruin the public landscape of the area!! look at the new big grey box dog care place for New Orleans sake!!!
