City: New Orleans, LA
HANO-ITEX project 4100 Royal
Comments: The scale & design are not in keeping with our historic neighborhood. The Bywater is a neighborhood 15 blocks long & 5 blocks wide consisting of one and two family homes in a multitude of pastel and/or vibrant colors. The brown & white monolith will be an eyesore harking back to the projects of old that the City of New Orleans has torn down because they didn't work, didn't provide a healthy environment for the people living in them. An apartment building of 136 units and 500 residents in one square block. Looking at the floorplan on HANO's website they have bedrooms with no windows, that can't be to code. This would be better suited in the Bronx, NY than in the Bywater.
