1011 S. Dupre St. — Applicant City of New Orleans Housing Law Unit Demolition Task Force for owner Gloria Dei Lutheran Church has applied to demolish this Arts-and-Crafts style raised basement single-family residence to be replaced with a vacant lot.

In the background there is a house that I noted was on the imminent Danger list slated for demolition as well.

  • Nearly every church in Broadmoor has property they want to tear down or have already torn down. Gloria Dei is no exception. It’s ridiculous. This property is actually in the National Register District.

    I went by there. It *can* be rehabbed: it should be sold. I’ve seen worse structures made whole again. Prime location, too, with the BIA plans. Heck, it’s large enough to be turned into a police substation, right across from the playspot, near the library and educational corridors, and with a little sense of history. Or first responder housing of the type the neighborhood association always talked about.
