Goin’ Back to New Orleans

by The 100 Companies

As the world remembers the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina this week, one Atlanta developer will also look back on five years of an award-winning mixed-income community in New Orleans – Columbia Parc.

Noel Khalil and Columbia Residential redeveloped one of the worst neighborhoods in the city – also one of the hardest hit by the storm – and turned it into a model for success.

Since opening in 2010, violent crime in Columbia Parc has decreased 99.9 percent, a school and health facility has opened and over 100 families were able to return to New Orleans and reside where they grew up.
