Signed on the dotted line! We closed the sale of our house at 413 Andry Street in New Orleans yesterday and handed keys over to the French family. This is one of five LEED Platinum houses we built in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, the neighborhood hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina.
Three remaining homes are on the market and the fifth is being used as a visitor’s center. All are part of the Holy Cross Project we began following Katrina — as part of our plan to help New Orleans rebuild green six years ago, we committed to helping the community with a project to build sustainable homes and a community center. Next, plans to break ground on the next phases to include a community center and additional housing. Stay tuned for news in the coming months.
