The LSU Footprint
[Click to enlarge any photos]
Note the several functioning businesses remain active in the site - Southern Electronics (set to move this month), The Blood Center (final photo at left), and Mid-City Automotive (barely visible in the distance in the center shot). The towering Grand Palace Hotel still stands off in the first shot above, as does McDonogh No. 11 School in the final shot.
Approximately 15 historic homes remain after dozens have been demolished in the past 9 months.
Not a single building has been moved off the site since site preparation started.
