This market is a part of the Myrtle Banks Building, a 65,000-square-foot project on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard that is managed by Corporate Realty.


Alembic Community Development acquired the historic school in 2011, and began construction in 2013 on an adaptive reuse program to transform the building into a home for fresh food, the arts, nonprofits and small businesses. The Myrtle Banks Building has been selected for a 2015 Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation by the Louisiana Landmarks Society and an Alliant Build America Award by the Associated General Contractors of America.


Corporate Realty congratulates Alembic Community Development on this successful development. We are proud to be part of a project that will be such an asset to the community, and the city.
