The owner of this property is Nguoi Dong Loai, the applicant for the demolition is New Orleans Demolitions. This home is structurally unsound. The owner walked away years ago. The property is under contract and it is unclear what their intention is for the property. The HDLC voted to defer this demolition to get a better assessment and to find out the intention of the owner and outlines of the contract for the sale of the property. It was hard to get a photo of the facade because of the two grand palms in front which would be great if they just had a haircut. This building was very scary to inspect. I heard the voice of Willie White in my head the whole time.

    It’s nice how the hdlc actually inspects buidings before making their decisions. Why cant the hcdrc declare a demolition by neglect or inspect buildings before making their decisions. What a lack of common sense.
