46 units on 7.3 acres | Lake Charles, LA | 2014

For more than a decade, the Lake Charles Housing Authority had desired to address the deterioration of their 70-year old buildings, infrastructure systems, and resident support needs on this projects 7.3 acre site.  Due to the excessive cost of completely renovating the existing 36 duplex units, SGB recommended they be demolished in favor of a lower density neighborhood that would transform the surrounding area and the lives of the residents.   The redevelopment plan encompasses 23 two-family structures that reflect the “Craftsman Style” of architectural character while providing energy efficiency, healthy lifestyles, and a close-knit community.
