NEW ORLEANS – SVN | Urban Properties, a New Orleans-based commercial brokerage, property management and development firm, represented the buyer of the French Quarter building that housed the historic K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen at 416 Chartres Street.

Tyler Robinson, a founding Partner at SVN | Urban, assisted the buyer, Robert Thompson, in the most recent acquisition for his hospitality company, Angevin & Co.

“Working with Robert on another strategic acquisition has been so rewarding,” said Robinson. “It gives me such a sense of accomplishment to assist him in building his brand and growing his footprint in the New Orleans hospitality industry.”

Thompson also recently acquired the Frenchmen and Whitney hotels. French Quarter Boulangerie, an all-day breakfast, lunch and bakery restaurant, is scheduled to open in the forer K-Paul’s space in the second half of 2023. 

The cafe will offer pastries, croissants, breads, desserts, and coffee to go, along with wine, beer and cocktails. The 12,000-square-foot space will be “a thoughtfully imagined space with food hall style counter service and a focus on fresh baked breads, pastries and iconic southern and classic French dishes influenced by the history of the French Quarter.”

“SVN | Urban Properties assisted with site selection within the French Quarter for an ideal space to expand on my food and beverage background,” said Thompson. “When the iconic K-Paul’s space came to market, I felt like it was a big undertaking, but also something that was important to pursue for the City. This historic property is worthy of new life and I know my team and I will evolve it in a way that honors its past while modernizing it for locals and tourists alike.”
