Dixie Brewery Article

Project Legacy Graphic

Dixie Brewery Research FacilityOn December 6, 2010, The Louisiana Weekly printed an article alleging that VA had plans to tear down the historic Dixie Brewery, which occupies one corner of the footprint of the new VA medical center (VAMC) in New Orleans.  This is inaccurate. Design development for the project concluded in January 2010. Historic elements of the Dixie Brewery building are incorporated into the design of the research facility (as you can see in the rendering at right). However, VA has yet to gain access to assess the building's structural integrity.  If it is not possible to rehabilitate the structure, we will integrate significant features of the historic building in the design of the new VA medical center. The design also includes the adaptive reuse of the Pan-American Insurance building at 2400 Canal Street and four historic homes in the footprint.
