Audubon Communities Management, which owns the 335,000 square-foot American Can property at 3700 Orleans Ave., is planning to upgrade the ground-floor façade of the building to offer more visibility and easier access to the shops and restaurants in the roughly 20,000-square-foot retail area. The designs include a raised pedestrian walkway, more visible signage and improved lighting. They also call for a translucent metal mesh “scrim” structure that will run along the entire length of the raised walkway. The roughly $1 million project is expected to be put out for bids by February and would be complete as early as May or June.
CityBusiness featured the renovations in a recent article, “American Can retail improvements expected next year.”
Current tenants include a PJs Coffee Shop, Mariposa Salon and Spa, Pearl Wine Co., an architectural firm and a branch of the New Orleans Public Library. There will be a new 2,000 sf available as well as a 3,000-square-foot restaurant space.
