Abe Wiener Apartments (1950)

Abe Wiener Apartments, originally uploaded by regional.modernism.
Architect Bernard J. Aronson (TSA '40), a native of New Orleans, designed two apartment buildings on St. Charles Avenue.

The first was a terraced complex of four luxury apartments for Abe Wiener at St. Charles and Valmont. The varied floor plans and massing of the units distinguish this complex from other apartment buildings along the Avenue. The four units open onto central patios and terraces paved with quarry tile.

In 1958 Aronson designed the Cabana Club Apartments at St. Charles and Conery.
