In 2014 the long-vacant Howard Triangle Building, which is exactly what it sounds like, was sold and slated to be developed into 18 luxury apartment units. The renovation of the Triangle Building is now complete and a place you should consider renting right now. Shea Trahan, a project manager at Trapolin-Peer Architects, who worked on the renovation, shared with us some photos of final product. Who wouldn't want to live in a Warehouse District loft that also happens to be shaped like a triangle? What is referred to as "New Orleans' answer to New York's Flat Iron Building" was built in 1926. It sat mostly vacant (Back to the Garden restaurant occupies the first floor) for several years before being sold for $1.525 million to William Legier. One notable aspect of the renovation is that the team uncovered the original hardwood floors from the building — estimated to be about 100 years old — that were hiding under carpets and then restored them beautifully.
