Another head-scratcher of an auction item has shown up on Civic Source under the tax certificate sale designation. Earlier this week, we brought you a profile of 1040 Gov Nicholls being up for auction, only to see the building's sale withdrawn. Today, it's 3010 Sandra Dr, the former home of the highly popular street art masterpiece ExhibitBE. The former Woodland Apartments were once the Live Oak Apartments and before that, the deGaulle Apartments, the latter of which was up for auction some 25 years ago. Though it's been reported that the site will be turning into a mixed-used development with a sports complex and hotel, 3010 Sandra Dr is still up for auction and will stay open until 8pm tonight. As of this writing, not a soul has placed a bid.
