2100-02 Destrehan is yet another Hyde Park structure to be threatened over the past couple months. This is another LRA-owned building, who is also proposing its demolition. Recently, the city demolished a group of handsome commercial buildings for a surface parking lot (for the Treasurer's Office).
Is the city wanting the sensitive Hyde Park historic district to further empty? You can count out an Old North-inspired revitalization of Hyde Park if the southern part of Hyde Park (adjacent to Old North) is fallow land.
