BW Cooper Neighborhood

We are so proud to have been part of the rebirth of this neighborhood following hurricane Katrina.

The B.W. Cooper Neighborhood Redevelopment Plan transforms an obsolete 1940's-era public housing project into a revitalized mixed-income neighborhood. The 55 acre development, now known as Marrero Commons, features 660 attached and detached single family homes and senior housing, a community center and a day care facility. The neighborhood is organized along pedestrian friendly streets that reestablish and connect to the historical street grid of New Orleans. Funding for this project includes one of the largest tax credit allocations in the history of the U.S. at $65 million. EDGE led the visioning process and master planning, detailed site design, coordination of zoning and development approvals and construction documentation services.
