NEW ORLEANS – SVN | Urban Properties, a New Orleans-based commercial brokerage, property management and development firm, represented the buyer of the French Quarter building that housed the historic K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen at 416 Chartres Street.

Tyler Robinson, a founding Partner at SVN | Urban, assisted the buyer, Robert Thompson, in the most recent acquisition for his hospitality company, Angevin & Co.

Thompson also recently acquired the Frenchmen and Whitney hotels. French Quarter Boulangerie, an all-day breakfast, lunch and bakery restaurant, is scheduled to open in the forer K-Paul’s space in the second half of 2023. 

The cafe will offer pastries, croissants, breads, desserts, and coffee to go, along with wine, beer and cocktails. The 12,000-square-foot space will be “a thoughtfully imagined space with food hall style counter service and a focus on fresh baked breads, pastries and iconic southern and classic French dishes influenced by the history of the French Quarter.”

“SVN | Urban Properties assisted with site selection within the French Quarter for an ideal space to expand on my food and beverage background,” said Thompson. “When the iconic K-Paul’s space came to market, I felt like it was a big undertaking, but also something that was important to pursue for the City. This historic property is worthy of new life and I know my team and I will evolve it in a way that honors its past while modernizing it for locals and tourists alike.”
