[UPDATE:] David Hecht with Formwork Development LLC and Clayton Randle with Quiwa Holdings LLC have reached out to us with a rendering photo as well as additional information, which has been added and amended below.
The former Hurwitz Mintz buildings in the French Quarter are turning into a mixed-used development. 217 Chartres and 225 Chartres are both still in the Mintz family and owned by SA Mintz LLC, though the furniture magnates are looking to add residences to the vacant buildings as well as commercial space on the first floor. 217 Chartres, which dates back to the early 20th century, spans five stories and is the younger of the two structures in terms of age and years owned by the Mintzes. The project is a joint effort of Formwork Development LLC and Quiwa Holdings LLC who plan to purchase the building.
225 Chartres dates all the way back to the 1860s and has been in the Mintz family for over 75 years. The latter building will be expanded to include an additional story as well as an addition on the roof on the rear building.
Ashley KingPeter Trapolin with Trapolin Peers Architects will be overseeing the project, whose OneApp was just filed this Monday.
