A former Uptown corner store is being considered for demolition at Monday’s Neighborhood Conservation District Committee meeting.

The property is at Nashville Avenue and Patton Street, and it’s now a fourplex apartment building occupying two lots. It was purchased by Tri-Meg Properties LLC for $482,000, from Regions Bank, according to Orleans Parish Assessor’s Office records.

The demolition application says the property is in poor condition. The owners want to knock it and a garage down so they can build two single-family homes, one on each lot.

The committee hears and votes on demolition applications in a large swath of the city. Neighbors and other interested  parties are encouraged to attend the meeting, which is in the City Council Chambers at 2 p.m.
