ABOUT THE ZODIAG BUILDING

616 Texas, known historically as the Zodiag Building (after its original owner, Austrian immigrant Herman Zodiag), is one of three buildings being completely rehabbed by New Orleans developer Roland von Kurnatowski. By the end of 2015, more than 100,000 square feet of formerly vacant downtown space will be back in business for a variety of uses including market- rate residential, office, retail and restaurants.

The Zodiag Building is the smallest of von Kurnatowski’s three buildings and the one closest to completion. It is also the oldest of the three, constructed around the turn of the last century. The building originally served as a dry goods store and later as a premier women’s dress shop, so Pop UP will be a return to its historic roots!

ABOUT THE SPAR PARKLET

Press Conference in the SPAR Parket

Press Conference in the SPAR Parklet

Large cities such as New York, Chicago and Boston have been experimenting with small oases of green…very small… in fact, the size of one parking space! Shreveport Public Assembly and Recreation (SPAR) thought the CBD POP UP was a great opportunity to try one of the mini-parks here, and have constructed a small tranquil space along a busy city street and we love it! SPAR staff constructed a frame to hold the sod, built a ‘running track’ on top (we believe 3,800 laps may equal .25 mile) and added live plants, trees and other amenities. Thanks to SPAR for many the CBD POP UP even more special and downtown even more beautiful.
