Iberville Housing Project in New Orleans to be Demolished




That's prime real estate. They should build housing somewhere else and sell that land for profit. $$

It is awesome that they are tearing them down...

But I think they are just replacing them with fancier projects, basically.

They SHOULD just relocate everyone and sell that property to the highest bidders, but they won't.

Unfortunately, it will be similar.

HANO, in partnership with the city, plans to redevelop the 23-acre Iberville site as well as an expanded 300-block area called "Iberville-Treme" that is bordered by Tulane and St. Bernard avenues and Broad and Rampart streets. The nearly $600 million project calls for the construction of 2,446 apartments including a one-for-one replacement of all of Iberville's 821 public housing apartments.

On the original 23-acre site, plans call for creating 304 public housing units, mostly town homes and multi-family buildings, allowing the 440 families living at Iberville to return. HANO also plans to build 261 moderate-income units and 315 market-rate units.

Up to 16 of the original Iberville buildings will be preserved and renovated into new housing units and a community center.

What the hell is wrong with politicians in Louisiana? Who is going to pay market rate for the same place someone is getting for $300 bucks or less? And to live in the projects.

So messed up

Just replacing it with a nicer project.

If I was mayor, I'd bulldoze every project in the city and rebuild them as BFE as I could like those exits to nowhere in the east.

See, to be mayor, you'd have to be elected. And if this was your position, you wouldn't be. And if you did this after you were already elected, you'd probably be assassinated.
