A complete renovation of an existing building located downtown at 1012 Canal Street between South Rampart Street and Roosevelt Way is in motion! This 12,882 square foot, four story building is an early 20th century commercial building. Originally housing the TULANE SHOP, the building was home to Odyssey Music for more than three decades. The owner of Odyssey retired in recent years and a new tenant had moved into the property.
The renovation will include a commercial retail space on the first floor and three apartments each on the second, third, and fourth floors. The masonry structure is heavily detailed and still features original elements including double arched windows, copper panels, and the cornice and parapet. The scope of work includes reframing all new interior/exterior walls and roofing and providing a facelift to the exterior façade to include refurbished stucco. An outdoor courtyard on the second floor will be available for use by the building’s tenants. The apartments and retail space includes replacement of all mechanical, electrical, plumbing and completely new interior finishes for the nine apartments. The project will be complete in July 2019.
