description  
Focusing on the devastated area of New Orleans East in general and Chantilly Drive in particular, this project imagines a comprehensive redevelopment plan that centers on stabilizing environmental conditions while improving the existing built infrastructure. Designers analyzed various site conditions including topography and circulation patterns along streets and within blocks, as well as environmental conditions of weather and climate. They then presented various development options, including that for a low-rise, high density and multi-unit residential structure that incorporates commercial activity. The plan also proposes a transportation hub and a memorial park. This project is a beacon for the rebuilding process and stands as a model for the new potential of New Orleans East.
