JPNSI REHABILITATES HISTORIC APARTMENT BUILDING TO PROVIDE PERMANENTLY AFFORDABLE HOMES IN MID-CITY

April 21, 2015- Today, the Jane Place Neighborhood Sustainability Initiative (JPNSI), a housing and community development non-profit and community land trust in Mid-City, held a public event to launch its 2739 Palmyra Project. The 2739 Palmyra building will be the first permanently affordable apartment building owned by a community land trust in New Orleans. Over 30 people, including City Councilmember Latoya Cantrell and Ms. Barbara Lacen Keller from the office of Council Member-at-Large Stacy Head, along with Ellen Lee, Director of Housing and Community Development for the City of New Orleans, attended the launch event.  

Along with partners the City of New Orleans, Iberia Bank, Crescent City Community Land Trust, Enterprise Community Partners, Alembic Community Development, and MetroStudio architects, JPNSI is rehabilitating a historic apartment building located at 2739 Palmyra Street into four units of permanently affordable rental housing available to families with incomes at or below 60% of Area Median Income (about $35,300 for a family of four).

JPNSI Board President Shana griffin states “The project launch today represents the culmination of years of hard work that we have put into bringing this historic building back into use in order to meet the escalating need for affordable homes in our neighborhood. Though four units may seem like a small project, we know that the overall impact is going to be transformative- both for the generations of families that will benefit from the project’s permanent affordability and because of the building’s location on a well traveled corner.”
