An application filed last week is asking for a permit to construct a temporary building facade that will be used in an upcoming film shoot on Royal Street.

The application requests a general work permit from the Vieux Carre Commission to dig and grade the ground in order to construct a temporary house facade in between the addresses of 808-810 Royal Street, according to a filing by 999 Ghost Productions LLC on July 19.

The temporary structure will not be attached to adjacent buildings. The application was reviewed on July 20 and returned for revision on the same day, records show.

A final inspection from the VCC has not been scheduled.

The film set will be located on an empty lot, where a three-story building constructed in the early 1800s collapsed on Oct. 22, 2014.
