Columbia Parc Senior Residences | New Orleans, LA
The St. Bernard Housing Development (1,436 units) was significantly impacted due to hurricane force winds and flood water caused by Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. Already in deterioration, the devastation accelerated existing plans to demolish and rebuild a mixed income community. The revitalized development includes transforming the 52 acre site into 17 new city blocks. The 4th phase of the master community lies on 1 block, 2.35 acres with 120 Senior Housing units. A two and three-story main building houses 111 units while on the smaller remaining parcel we placed nine, one-story Senior Cottages. This enabled us to maximize the use of the site and provide multiple product types to Senior residents.
