New Orleans Real Estate Developer Kailas Talks Historical Tax Credits, Woolworth
Written by 

Woolworth BuildingHow important is the Historical Rehabilitation Tax Credit signed by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal on Thursday at the famous and soon to be totally renovated Saengar theater?

 

According to Praveen Kailas, new construction projects downtown and in the French Quarter would “never have a chance to take off without the historic tax credit”.

 

 In fact, the young New Orleans real estate developer is planning to build a major development at the vacant Woolworth's store at 1031 Canal Street on the corner of North Rampart. According to Kailas, the building would have 40,000 square feet of retail space, 300 market-rate apartments in the new and developing New Orleans theater district.

 

The project would sit on the corner of the “theater district” involving the Joy, the State Palace and the Saenger Theaters.

 

Watch the short interview of Kailas where he discusses this and other projects of which he is involved.

It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
