Bourbon Heat has appealed to correct or retain renovations to its property and a proposal to install synthetic balcony decking are among the list of items scheduled for Tuesday’s meeting of the Vieux Carre Commission Architectural Committee.

The meeting is scheduled for 1 pm. in the 8th floor conference room of City Hall, located at 1300 Perdido St.

On the list of appeals and violations is Bourbon Heat’s proposal to correct or retain and renovate the property located at 711 Bourbon St., including increasing the height of a masonry wall and installation of shield string lights, according to the VCC agenda.

The string lights were installed in the courtyard and carriageway without VCC review and approval, resulting in the violation. A proposed solution includes replacing the lights with a “conical shielded type,” according to the agenda.

Additionally, the building was cited for attaching “impermissible clothing and merchandise” to the exterior of the building along the front of the business, which the VCC ordered to be removed immediately.

The committee also received a proposal to install synthetic balcony decking at a city-owned building located at 1008 N. Peters St., where WWOZ radio station offices are located.

Other items on the agenda include a proposal to correction violations and reinforce the building located at addresses 429-433 Bourbon Street, which encompasses the former Babe’s Cabaret and Nightclub; a proposal to correct or retain violations, including the roof-mounted HVAC unit at the French Quarter Mansion Hotel, located at 730 Dumaine St.; an appeal to retain plexiglass installed over French doors at 712 Royal St., which houses Trashy Diva Lingerie Boutique; and a proposal to replace altered millwork and convert existing window to a door, and installation of mechanical equipment at 610 Dumaine St., which houses Bungalows Boutique.
