Emile Weil, a prominent New Orleans architect, designed The Canal Bank & Trust Building at 210 Baronne Street. Built in 1927, Weil used mahogany trim, Tennessee marble, travertine floors and brass embroidery to line the corridors, and he embellished the façade with limestone statues. Previously, the building housed professional offices and one of the largest banks in the South for almost 90 years. The bank lobby was built to project a sense of grandeur and scale unmatched by any other location in the city. Today, the original bank lobby has been transformed into the Capital on Baronne. Every detail has been preserved, from the irreplaceable plaster work to the hand carved marble columns.
