The pile of mangled disco parts beyond the fence pictured at top is all that remains of the less-than-2-year-old La Roux nightclub building at 4011 Washington after crews brought down the house last week. In March, a real estate company connected to Zadok Jewelers bought the entire 39,000-sq.-ft. block on Washington between Leverkuhn and Jackson Hill St. La Roux was evicted earlier this year.
The club’s entrance was off Leverkuhn:
Construction on the building began in 2014 behind and around the adjacent 2-story, 1930 brick building formerly occupied by Guadalajara Bakery at 4003 Washington. A restaurant called Black Orchid Gastro Lounge was announced for the bakery building but never opened. La Roux opened next door 2 years later, in February 2016.
The 4,372-sq.-ft. former bakery building is the only structure still standing on the block. Here’s a view from the west:
A listing on LoopNet notes that the entire property is now available for lease and that the Guadalajara Bakery building is “set to undergo a major renovation.“
