Iceberg House.

This house has just been painted all-white and it looks like a big, giant iceberg. With a black roof on top, HAHAHA.

Corner S Cortex & Baudin. Used to be a vacant lot.

Two Deckers in New Orleans

In the 200 block of North Genois Street, Mid-City New Orleans, two new two-families are going up. They look too narrow to be proper two-story doubles; apparently they will be one flat on top of another, with the second floor entrance off to the side. A two-story two-family where each unit has one floor is a New England two-decker!

The Houses in the Lot Across the Way Are Being Painted.

The first has a grey-and-white finish.

The second one is just being started.

A House Comes Down on S Cortez St

A house was torn down at 416 S Cortez St in New Orleans yesterday, January 9, 2015. The company responsible, Demo Diva, did an excellent job. No debris in the street or in neighbors' yards! :^)

View from across the street.


Apparently, the house was too frail to be renovated. Plus, it had some bad remodeling done to it. Maybe the foundation was weakened. Termites? Or activities associated with the new construction going up at the corner of S Cortez and Baudin Streets?

More development in New Orleans! And a quick house sale.

First, the development.

The houses in the formerly vacant lot across the way are almost complete.
One is for sale.
3700 Block of Baudin St.

A pile test assembly and some stray timber piles laying about.
300 Block of North Scott St.
And the quick house sale.
The real estate for sale sign was put up five weeks ago.
A sign the real estate market here is still in a bubble.
And a sign Mid-City is still gentrifying.
300 Block of South Scott St.
