Plans to convert an old gymnasium in Mid-City behind the new Morris Jeff Community School into high-end apartments are heading to City Council this Thursday.
The plans were previously shot down by the City Planning Commission, but developer Narinder Gupta is heading to council with new plans this week.
Plans call for a three-story, 23-unit apartment complex in the 39,500 square-foot abandoned building. The development would also include 25 off-street parking spaces.
Things aren't looking so good for the project right now: Besides the Planning Commission's rejection, "neighbors have objected in the form of written letters to the city, and the Mid-City Neighborhood Organization and teachers and staff from the Morris Jeff Community School have also taken a stance of formal opposition," Mid-City Messenger reports.
