Reprieve for Dixie Brewery

Good news as the LSU/VA hospital complex project moves forward here in New Orleans:

Architects for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, meanwhile, reiterated their intention to spare the Pan-American Building and as much of Dixie Brewery as the structural integrity of the 1907 building allows.

As I stated earlier, saving the Dixie Brewery structure is my chief concern related to the new development.

Yesterday, as Steve S drove with me on an errand, he was awed at the sight of the structure as we came upon it.  It's worth saving.
