City Council rejects proposal for Marigny apartments
The New Orleans City Council has rejected a 25-foot height waiver sought by a developer who wants to build an apartment building in Faubourg Marigny.
The Times-Picayune reports developer Sean Cummings said the decision "kills the project."
Without the ability to build the modernistic, six-story building to a height of 75 feet, he said the $20 million project isn't viable.
The council rejected the waiver on a unanimous vote.
