Named to Louisiana Landmark’s listing of New Orleans’ Nine Most Endangered Sites in 2010, the General Laundry, Cleaners and Dyers Building is threatened with demolition. Constructed in 1929-30, the building is noted for its exuberant Art Deco terra cotta façade which is highly visible from Orleans Avenue.
The demolition application was deferred at a recent City Council meeting. The building is in Councilman Jared Brossett’s district. Posts about the building can be found at https://www.facebook.com/prcno?ref=hl
We urge you to contact City Council members and join the voices of opposition to the demolition. The building could have a promising future along the newly developed Lafitte Greenway.
