Whitney Bank Will Soon Be Back in Mid-City

Hot off the press — Whitney Bank is the purchaser of the former Walgreen’s at Jeff Davis & Canal, and have plans to build a new branch there.
They have been in contact with Mid-City Neighborhood Organization’s Zoning Committee, and with Palmyra Area Partners, and are setting a meeting to show their plans. The plans comply with all zoning for the area (meaning they will not have to ask for any waivers or variances). We will likely seek a Design Review Committee (similar to what we’ve done for the Storage facility on Canal & City Park Ave), so keep your eyes peeled for a request sometime in October.
This is exciting news, and will further revitalize this key intersection in Mid-City.
The location was one that the Economic Development Committee suggested to Whitney Bank back in March of this year, when we provided them with repopulation and economic development information for the neighborhood and formally requested that they move forward with reopening a branch.
Good news for Mid-City!
