Faubourg Lafitte Redevelopment
affordable and for-sale housing
The Faubourg Lafitte redevelopment used local vernacular architecture styles to replace public and private housing that were vacant after Hurricane Katrina. The new, on-site project, in the Treme-Lafitte neighborhood, was comprised of over 417 living quarters in approximately 220 buildings. They composed of single family detached houses, duplexes and multi-family residential apartments, of which 144 of the units were for sale. Additionally, 100 off-site units in the Tulane/Gravier neighborhood were built on scattered sites in the heart of the city.
