Schadler Building (threatened)

Th Schadler Building on Tulane Avenue's "Miracle Mile" is threatened with demolition due to its location within the LSU hospital footprint.

Alfons Schadler acquired the site from the Hartwell Estate to construct a new headquarters for his Southern Radio Supply Company (est.1932).

The two story air conditioned building included a "high fidellity sound room," a 2000 SF showroom and 4000 SF of office space. It was designed by architect John M. Lachin, Jr. and constructed in 1956 by Otis W. Sharp and Sons, contractors.
