Iberville housing development demolition to begin Tuesday


New Orleans, La. - New Orleans will mark another milestone in its effort to transform public housing Tuesday, when crews will begin demolishing dozens of buildings in the Iberville housing development.

Housing administrators plan to turn this area of Treme into a mixed-income, mixed-use community similar to the B.W. Cooper, Lafitte, and other projects in recent years.

When Iberville residents first learned of the demolition, some worried they would have trouble moving back. They were reassured, however, that that would not be the case.

"The first thing I want to say is no one now getting assistance will lose their assistance," HANO administrator David Gilmore said back in March.

Once the redevelopment job is complete, the new Iberville community will consist of about 300 public housing units, with about 550 other units described as moderate or market rate.
