NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -Plans for a six-story condo in Old Metairie are now on hold.

Neighbors said they were initially fine with the project on Labarre near Metairie Road because they thought the building would only have three stories.

Then, renderings showed the condos would be larger than expected.

The Jefferson Parish Council directed the Code Enforcement Department yesterday not to issue building permits for the project.
