New apartment development considered in Lower Garden District

The complex would replace a blighted grocery store

The proposed Mid-City complex on the Lafitte Greenway might not be the only new apartment project in town.

An apartment complex in the Lower Garden District area is being proposed by the developer that is also behind Sydney Torres’ Mid-City apartment development, reports.

The developer, Edward Communities, wants to build between 200 and 220 units on 1301 Annunciation street. The units would take the place of a blighted grocery store.

The developer will present the plans to the neighborhood association, the Coliseum Square Association, in a public meeting, on November 21.

Once presented to the neighborhood, the proposal will be sent to the city of New Orleans.

Edwards is currently developing a $65 million apartment complex in Mid-City on the Lafitte Greenway, owned by Sydney Torres IV.

The Mid-City complex will have 382 units, while 14 of them will be reserved for the city’s pilot smart housing mix plan.

Edward Communities did not specify if the new Lower Garden District complex will have a smart housing mix plan.
