Demolition du Jour: The Twi-Ro-Pa Mills Building

Came across the demolition of the Twi-Ro-Pa Mills building on Tchoupitoulas in the Lower Garden District last Saturday on the way over to the Port of New Orleans HQ for the "New Orleans Riverfront: Reinventing the Crescent" presentation.

Another building just goes away with no fanfare . . . No re-development possibilities with this structure??? Please. Detroit, St. Louis--here we come . . . (the gadfly continues to kick ass).

I fear we have already become Detroit but no one here knows it cause they are too excited about the Saints.

FYI, the twi-ro-pa demolition is not associated with the Riverfront Development...that land is now owned by a private developer from Miami.

Wasn't there some big to-do about the building pre-K? Seemed that after the boys made it a profitable business the city stepped in to sell it to the highest bidder, eminent domain and all that tax revenue!

I think they did it for a reason, hopefully for the better.
Anyway, it seems new to my eyes.

Katrina victims of Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) flooding may be owed compensation from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers over its failure to appropriately maintain the MRGO. If you are one of the thousands of Louisiana residents whose property was located in the following Louisiana zip codes: 70129, 70117, 70092, 70085, 70075, 70043, and 70032, and you filed SF Form 95 claims with the Army Corps of Engineers on or before August 29, 2007, this site has lots of valuable information: http://www.yourlawyer.com/topics/overview/MRGO-Flood-Lawsuit

Where is this building located at? I've noticed that they tore down a lot of buildings recently. I decided to start a blog for everyone who wants to read about the changes in New Orleans. Do you have any pics you can share? I really liked your pic update on the Claiborne shopping center. I hope to update on that soon. Thanks!

What can you say sometimes you need to first destroy to rebuild. Otherwise they will remain as a sore thumb in the middle of nicely developed areas.

A great building. It would be a shame if nobody would like to rebuild it. I love that architecture!
