2 Groups Submit Proposals For Old Charity Hospital


NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Louisiana State University says two groups have submitted proposals for new uses of the century-old building that held Charity Hospital until Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005.

The LSU Real Estate and Facilities Foundation said in a statement Monday that one of three groups asked for proposals dropped out because a principal team member died last week.

The foundation will release proposals from HRI Properties LLC and 1532 Tulane Partners after it recommends one to the LSU Board of Supervisors.

HRI has redeveloped several historic buildings. 1532 Tulane Partners includes the architectural company that helped restore Brennan's Restaurant.

LSU Board of Supervisors meets Oct. 4. The foundation will make its recommendation sometime before that.
