Join us for a tour of the Iberville Redevelopment in Tremé. The Iberville Projects were one of the low-income Housing Projects of New Orleans. These projects were the last of the New Deal era public housing left in New Orleans. The multi-phase Iberville Onsite redevelopment, led by the Housing Authority of New Orleans and HRI Properties transforms the 23-acre Iberville Public Housing Development, built in 1942 and located adjacent to New Orleans’ famous French Quarter, into a vibrant, mixed-use, mixed-income community. Other contributors include HCI Architects, Landis Construction, Woodward Design + Build, Manning Architects, McCormick Baron Salazar, and Concordia LLC.
The redevelopment of the Iberville site, including the reintroduction of the street grid and construction of new utilities and public rights of way throughout the site, significantly contributes to the revitalization of a large portion of the City of New Orleans: the Iberville/Tremé neighborhood. Spurred by the onsite redevelopment, the Iberville/Tremé plan will transform the physical site and structures, provide for the neighborhood’s social and cultural needs, and improve the economic and retail vitality of this historic neighborhood.
Through a combination of historic renovations and new construction, the Iberville redevelopment will create approximately 700 total units offering onsite parking, fitness centers, community spaces, a computer technology center, neighborhood parks, and other programmed outdoor leisure areas. The historic buildings are renovated in accordance with the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Standards for Historic Rehabilitation and are complemented by the new construction of multifamily buildings and townhouse buildings. This thoughtful combination of new construction and rehabilitation ensures that the revitalized site maintains a physical link with its history while providing modern amenities and conveniences.
The tour will be led by project architects from HCI Architects, developers from HRI Properties, and project contractors from Landis Construction.
The event is $15 for "Friends of NOAF", $25 for general tickets and is open to the public. Only 35 spots are available. Registration is required.
