The Building is a 3-floor performance venue, art gallery, and event space. An undertaking of Christian and Connie Labat, the project will be the fruition of the couple’s dream to support the social and economic revitalization of Oretha Castle Haley Blvd, while maintaining the unique aesthetic and character of days gone by.
Locally owned businesses infuse New Orleans neighborhoods with their unique character, and are a big part of why we want to live, work, eat and shop here. The Shopkeeper Stories series shares the vision and personality of New Orleans business owners.
