Lafitte Housing Redevelopment

The Tremé Lafitte Public Housing Development was a 27.5-acre parcel in the historic Tremé/Lafitte neighborhood of New Orleans. After Hurricane Katrina left the property mostly abandoned in late 2005, the City of New Orleans began to take a larger look at the state of their public housing. This evaluation and master planning effort eventually led to a massive overhaul of this type of facility across the entire community.

Eventually, L+M Development Partners was selected to operate and oversee the redevelopment of the Lafitte site. The plan called for the creation of 900 subsidized rental homes/apartments and 600 for-sale Lafitte Phase IIIhomes on the site of the former Lafitte development and scattered throughout the surrounding neighborhoods blurring the edges of a once-isolated neighborhood.

Broadmoor, in a joint venture with Milton J. Womack, has provided approximately $50 million is construction contract value to the Lafitte Redevelopment Plan under six individually negotiated contracts. This housing, built in the tradition of standard, wood-frame housing, now exists in far greater sync with the surrounding neighborhoods, allowing the residents to live a far more inclusive life alongside their neighbors.

Broadmoor was contractually required to complete 86 units in 10 months for owner to realize tax incentives, we completed 120 allowing owner realize additional tax incentives.
