The Oldest Synagogue in New Orleans Turned into Lofts

In August 2014, a lucky dozen or so tenants moved into the newly renovated 147-year-old (now 148-year-old) Synagogue on Jackson Avenue in New Orleans.

Developer Gregg Morris, originally from Los Angeles, converted the first floor into five units and the remaining units on the second and third floors were transformed into lofts.

Through use of the city’s historic tax credit, Morris was able to renovate while maintaining many original features including the facade and brick, seen inside and out, that dates back to the Civil War. Out front, seen from Jackson Avenue, sitsĀ a replica of the original double staircase at the front of the building.

Pictures from one of the third floor units are displayed below.
