Last November, an Ohio-based developer pitched the idea of creating an apartment complex in place of a blighted grocery store in the Lower Garden District. This past month, the developer presented design plans to the City of New Orleans.

Planned at 1301 Annunciation Street, this mixed-used development will stand four stories tall, and have 210 apartment units, garage parking, ground-floor retail space, and three courtyards.

The development will take up an entire block, facing Annunciation, Thalia, Constance and Melpomene streets

The leading architect for the development is Lupton Rausch Architecture. Jones Studio will handle interior design and Creative Design + Planning will oversee landscape and project management.

Does the building design look familiar? The developer, Edward Communities, is also responsible for a similar, 385-unit Mid-City apartment complex. Last November, the development obtained a substantial tax break after negotiating a smart housing policy with City Council.

Two blocks down, at 1100 Annunciation Street, Spectrum Capital plans to develop a 16-story, mix-used condominium.
