HANO begins demolition of Iberville housing development

New Orleans, La. - Wrecking crews began demolition Tuesday of 59 of the 75 buildings on the site of the Iberville Housing Development.

The demolition launches the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development  Choice Neighborhoods Initiative.

In 2011, HANO and the City of New Orleans were awarded $30.5 million from HUD to transform the Iberville development and to revitalize the Tremé neighborhood as a part of CNI. 

Phase I and II of the onsite redevelopment plan include 227 mixed-income rental units; 81 public housing, 49 workforce and 97 market rate. 

At the completion of the full project, the new community will house 880 units on-site; 304 public housing, 261 workforce, and 315 market rate homes. 

The plan also includes construction that began in November 2012 at the former Texaco Building located at 1501 Canal Street, which will provide 112 new housing units for elderly Iberville residents.

Iberville, the city's last standing conventional public housing development, was originally constructed in 1941.  The demolition of Phase I and Phase II is estimated to be completed by October with the start of construction to immediately follow.
