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.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
