Archdiocese Breaking Ground

Recently, the Archdiocese of New Orleans awarded Gibbs Construction the $18.7 million contract to replace a senior citizens’ apartment complex which was damaged by the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina in the Lower 9th Ward. Designed by Lachin Oubré & Associates Architects, the Villa St. Maurice project consists of both a historic renovation and the construction of a new building. The new building, a five-story apartment building with 77 one-bedroom units, is under way this week as the first test pile is driven. The renovation is an adaptive reuse of the historic convent for the Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.  The convent, which dates back to 1899, will be repurposed as community spaces for the apartment complex including offices, a beauty parlor, meeting space, a computer lab and an exercise facility.

This project is part of the huge effort underway by the Archdiocese to repair or restore facilities for the senior citizen community of New Orleans.
