Apartment complex rising on old Winn Dixie site in Treme
A new apartment complex with affordable units is planned where the former Winn Dixie once stood on St. Louis Street near Basin Street in Treme. It’s part a push to add more housing stock to the neighborhood after the Iberville housing project was closed after Hurricane Katrina.
Developers, working with the Housing Authority of New Orleans, are poised to break ground on a $23.2 million project to replace the old supermarket with a four-story housing complex that has 76 living units. Of those, 30 would be reserved for low-income residents and Section 8 housing voucher recipients.
