This old double cottage at 514-516 Dufossat Street, just off Tchoupitoulas, stands no longer. In 1961 the property owner requested a zoning change from Four Family to Light Industrial in order to allow for the demolition of this and an adjacent single. He planned to build a multi-family apartment structure in their place. The Planning Commission found the change to be inappropriate but the Council rejected their recommendation and approved the petition. Today the site is occupied by a sixteen-family unit.
