A “D2D” is defined as a property that has been structurally reconfigured to maximize the number of bedrooms. Partners John P. Hamide and Preston Tedesco are the primary developers of D2Ds. Otherwise, what I call simply “rentals” may not have been structurally altered; but many of them violate zoning anyway with an excessive number of tenants. (Heidenberg Properties is the best example.) But some “rentals” are simply lacking in documentation: Edie Pitt is the prime example of a developer who dispenses altogether with the tedious matter of building permits.

This data is current to the best of my knowledge at 7/16/22. See the key below the table for notes.

Co-owner Preston Tedesco and architect Loretta Harmon represent no changes in bedrooms in their June 9, 2021, plans; we find an increase (via phony room labels) from 5 to 10 with no additional off-street parking.

Notes: A stop-work order notice was served on Feb. 24, 2022. The HDLC fined Tedesco $7,500 on Apr. 6, 2022, for exceeding the scope of permitted roof demolition at 817 Adams: 33% was permitted, but 75% was demolished.

On 7/20/21, the pool was drained into Adams Street. Safety and Permits stated (8/17/2021) it's not a violation. Original construction value of $30K (for 817 Adams alone) has been updated to $141K for 817-819 Adams. The old permit application (3/24/2021) was voided.

631Broadway01/20/20Amicus CV Borrower, LLC (A)A$818,000$322,000NoD2DAmicus's original renovation plans (12 bedrooms) halted by BZA decision of 1/11/21. Number of bedrooms was limited to 7.

The second BZA appeal concerning viability of parking lot plan was denied by the BZA at the 5/17/21 hearing. Amicus will therefore will permitted to add three new bedrooms (for a total of 10) to this building. Neighbors contend the driveway is too narrow and the parking lot too small for reasonable use; and two of the new parking places simply replace two grandfathered spaces.

Parking plan was the subject of a zoning verification request (filed 3/12/21), project number 21-0298.

Amicus is advertising availability by August, 2021, asking $3K for a 2-bedroom unit (link to Zillow).
1409 Broadway09/13/19Amicus CV Borrower, LLC (A)A$640,000$346,000NoD2DAfter a year-long battle via the BZA and the Orleans Parish Civil District Court, the use of this building was reclassified (using the same work permit) as two-family with 8 bedrooms total. But 2 additional bedrooms from the original multi-family plan have been merely renamed and will, we predict, be used (sub rosa) as bedrooms 9 and 10.

New plans (dated Jan. 22, 2021) were submitted for two-family use and the work permit was updated (Feb. 25, 2021) rather than re-issued, thus avoiding governance by the IZD.

At the BZA hearing of 5/17/21, neighbors argued for the issuance of a new permit. This would compel Amicus to provide four new off-street parking places (for bedrooms 5-8) per the IZD. The appeal was denied.

BZA appeal by neighbors failed re governance by University Area IZD. A lawsuit was filed on March 18, 2021, to appeal the BZA decision. At a hearing on the merits on June 2, 2021, Judge Irons ruled in favor of the BZA and the DSP, citing the confusion of the City Hall cyberattack and COVID-19 precautions to explain the CIty's lapses in procedure. Per Judge Irons' ruling, the IZD does not apply to this house, which will contain at least 4 new bedrooms (total of 8) and no additional off-street parking.
