Beams & Brews visits the former Lighting Inc. building on Tulane Avenue

Online ticket sales have closed. Tickets will be available for purchase at the doors of the event!


This event, originally scheduled for May 25, has been rescheduled to June 1.


The PRC’s Beams & Brews series is presented by Reve Realtors and generously supported by Nola Brewing.

Local real estate developers Tony and Katherine Gelderman welcome the PRC to tour their renovation of 4201 Tulane Ave. Built in 1924, this two-story commercial building was home to Riecke Cabinet Works before it was renovated in 1971 to house the Lighting Inc. Company. The 1971 renovation included the application of an exterior metal wrapping that covered the unusual original metal façade. Utilizing Historic Rehabilitation Tax credits, the Geldermans and their team have nearly completed a sensitive rehabilitation of the building, retaining the original façade cladding on the elevations facing Tulane Avenue and S. Solomon Street. Beams & Brews offers a chance to view the property inside and out, hear from the project’s managers and enjoy free drinks.

Read more about the building’s history and renovation from our latest issue of Preservation in Print.
