The former Andrew J. Bell Middle School campus in Treme, abandoned since Hurricane Katrina, will be converted into a space with affordable housing and artist studios. Plans were announced in 2013, and now groundbreaking on the project will happen April 14.
The Bell Artspace Campus aims to be a "community hub of arts and culture," and will include 79 units of affordable housing, plus rehearsal and performance spaces.
