Overview / Comments

This redevelopment opportunity has been verified with the State of LA as potentially qualifying for Historic Tax Credits (HTCs). 1229 Texas Avenue (separately listed) may also potentially qualify for HTCs, which provides upwards of 50,000 SF for redevelopment.

In addition, both 1229 & 1239 Texas Avenue are located in a qualified census tract for New Market Tax Credits (NMTCs). Layering the potential capital stack with HTCs and NMTCs provides significant, below market capital for a redevelopment.
