8537-39 Sycamore Demo

8537-39 Sycamore

Originally uploaded by Karen Apricot New Orleans.

This home located at Leonidas & Sycamore is on today’s agenda at the HCDRC meeting. Owner-requested demolition.

It could be saved, temporarily, by a request for a 30 day deferral.

The house is in need of repair, but does not appear to have structural problems. An important house in the sense that it anchors this end of Sycamore and it is one of the few attractive buildings on Leonidas. If it is demolished, something worse–or a vacant lot–will take its place.
