A six-story apartment complex slated for the edge of Mid-City is one step closer to fruition after zoning adjustments were approved.
The New Orleans Board of Zoning Adjustments approved a density and permeable open space waiver for 1717 Canal St., which is situated at the edge of Mid-City just before the I-10 Expressway intersection. Babington Properties, L.P. needed a zoning change to build a six-story apartment complex with retail area on the site. The lot’s current zoning limits multi-family developments to 1 unit per 1,000 square foot of lot area. For the petitioned property, the regulations would limit the development to 61 units.
