The Plight That Drove Old Dixie Down

Dixie Brewery's Fate Amidst the Lower Mid-City Hospitals



A hulking presence over an otherwise unremarkable stretch of Tulane Avenue in Lower Mid-City, the Dixie Brewery stands tall over its surroundings, and serves as a constant reminder of Tulane Avenue's past industrial bustle. But these days, a new presence looms over the Tulane corridor in the form of the proposed LSU-VA Medical complex.


Falling Down


In the swath of Lower Mid-City that is being cleared to make way for BioDistrict New Orleans, fewer signs of the humanity that once inhabited the land exist everyday. Last week's demolition of the Outer Banks Bar was the most dramatic among hundreds of wreckings that have taken place over the past couple months. Only a handful of buildings are left. Some of them are family homes, and some are historic buildings like the S.W. Green House and the McDonogh No. 11 School.  Even so, the state still doesn't have a date set for the LSU Teaching Hospital's groundbreaking. Amid the bureaucracy and fanciful projections, the images of cleared land provide an unmistakable description of the project as it stands. NoDef sent photographer Kat Arnold to document the current state of things. Her photos appear in a slideshow after the jump.
