The $100 million transformation of the 30-story building at 225 Baronne St. into an Aloft Hotel–apartment mash-up is underway and the Canal Street Beat cats have some mid-makeover exterior shots. Work should wrap up at the CBD site in December 2014 or early 2015 with 188 "style at a steal" hotel rooms, a parking garage, 192 apartments, and lest any tourist-locals intermingling take place, there will be two pools, one for hotel guests and one for the apartment dwellers.
