Tremé, historically home to celebrated musicians, artists, chefs and other New Orleans change-makers, is enjoying a revival. The revitalized Faubourg Lafitte will serve as the center of that revival along with new schools, community centers, hospitals and parks.
Faubourg Lafitte is much more than just housing. It is a vibrant neighborhood that provides easy access to the best of New Orleans and provides an opportunity for former Lafitte residents to return to their neighborhood while welcoming new working families.
Faubourg Lafitte will include 812 new homes and apartments at the re-imagined site of the old Laffite Housing project with more apartments and homes in attractive locations within the surrounding Tremé/Lafitte and Tulane/Gravier neighborhoods.
The new Faubourg Lafitte is about so much more than housing. Our goal is to stimulate the growth of a healthy and diverse neighborhood with improved amenities, services, education healthcare, economic opportunities and more.
With assistance from our partners, we have provided counseling and direct assistance to hundreds of former Lafitte families living locally and across the US. These programs are continuing and will serve the entire neighborhood.
