Tremé Lafitte Housing Redevelopment
Square Footage: 27.5 acres
Owner: Lafitte Redevelopment LLC
Architect: Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, Michael Willis Architects
Completion Date: 2011
After Hurricane Katrina, a New-York based firm oversaw the redevelopment of a 27.5-acre parcel of land in the Treme’ Lafitte neighborhood of New Orleans. Broadmoor, in a joint venture with Milton J. Womack, has provided approximately $85.6 million in construction contract value to the Treme’ Lafitte Redevelopment Plan under five individually negotiated contracts. This housing, built in the traditional New Orleans vernacular of classic wood-framing, now exists in far greater sync with the surrounding neighborhoods, allowing the residents to live a far more inclusive lifestyle alongside their neighbors.
