A proposed controversial Holy Cross redevelopment at the site of the former Holy Cross School in the Lower Ninth Ward, is getting some national attention as it prepares to be the hot topic at the April 10 City Council meeting. "The plan's backers say it represents a rare chance at economic revitalization for the neighborhood. Its opponents say it would destroy the fabric of Holy Cross, and might represent the first step toward changing the traditionally low-rise New Orleans waterfront into something very different: the kind of high-rise, high-rent district you see in Miami or Houston."
