The Marrero Commons Housing Redevelopment (formerly BW Cooper Housing) is the largest project completed in company history at just over $100 million. This project required completing infrastructure in 16 city blocks, building 175 individual structures containing 410 separate living units, and using 932,000 man hours, 13 job-specific internal staff members, and 80 subcontractors and suppliers, in three phases of work encompassing 1,234 days.
Located near the heart of New Orleans, the former BW Cooper Housing Development was partially demolished and replaced with this new ground-up mixed-income community that includes affordable, public and market rate housing in one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments in townhouses and garden-style buildings, a day care and a community center. The walkable neighborhood features new sidewalks, secured parking, vernacular architectural styles, play areas and tot-lots, and market-rate interior features and amenities.
