Name: Patricia S Bernstein
City: New Orleans
HANO/ITEX development at Royal and Mazant
Comments: The size, scale and massing of the 4-story building in the context of a low-rise 19th Century urban landscape. Nothing like this has ever existed in Bywater.

The building will include 136 units which will bring additional traffic to the neighborhood. The added density of this development will be in addition to the hotel planned next door and three other proposed hotels in Bywater, the redevelopment of the Naval Support Activity base, a cruise ship terminal directly across Chartres St, and additional Crescent Park visitors when the park is extended all the way to the French Quarter.

The building is being built on the site of one of Louisiana's first plantations and still contains archaeological evidence from that period.
