A few weeks ago, we inadvertently managed to break the Internet with a posting of a cool new apartment space downtown.

Look at that view!

Developer Jason Cram has created three beautiful apartments on the second floor of an historic building in the 400 block of Crockett Street. It took a keen eye to recognize what the homely, poorly-maintained buildings could become and the ‘before’ and ‘after’ will amaze you.

The expansive and well-equipped kitchen. Pay special attention to the tile work.

On Wednesday, May 3 at 6:15 pm, we will gather in the downstairs of 427 Crockett to hear a little history on the buildings and some stories about the construction project in a fun session we call History in 5.

The tub! The tile!

Afterwards, we will go up the stairs to the apartments. We think you will fall in love with what you see. The one thing to remember is that you can scratch your historic apartment itch downtown. We have multiple options for living or you may want to buy a building and try your hand at creating some spaces yourself. We can help with that, too.

The tour is free and part of the Downtown Shreveport Artwalk, which is also free. We encourage you to come for the tour, but stay for the Artwalk.
