The owner lived at 5530 Canal Boulevard and 5524 Canal Boulevard was rented out before the storm. 5524 Canal Boulevard is in the South Lakeview national historic district and is the house that the owner wants torn down. This house is an important part of the South Lakeview Historic district and it would be a tragedy if this house is demolished. There is nothing that can legally be done to save this house and most of the houses in the neighborhood are occupied or being restored so this is a good investment.
