HPN Awarded Excellence in Historic Preservation during Louisiana Landmarks Society Awards
At the 2019 Louisiana Landmarks Society Awards for Excellence in Historic Preservation, Historic Pro NOLA will be honored along with the project's architect, Adler Design Build, LLC, for the extensive work to restore and rehabilitate this historic Treme property.
The Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans shared the full list of this year's featured projects and recipients. Among the list, they included the following synopsis of the project:
When the team began this renovation in Faubourg Tremé, cat’s claw trumpet vine creeped over all 333 elevations, threatening the remaining original elements of this Greek Revival-style cottage. In 1911, the Economy Mutual Aid Hall, a benevolent society for African Americans, acquired the dwelling and used it as its headquarters. Adjacent to the property was Economy Hall, a famous jazz club located in a now-demolished structure. Creating two living units, this honored project brings people back to the historic neighborhood as well as salvaging an important architectural element.
