NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Developers want to turn a Mid-City church into pricey apartments.

The City Planning Commission approved plans this week to overhaul First United Baptist Church on South Jefferson Davis Parkway.

Developers want to use the building to create 20 apartments. Their plans include one and two bedroom units with monthly rents estimated to be somewhere between $1300 and $1600.

The project needs final approval from city council before construction can begin.
