Week in Review, Jan. 15-19: H3C, Special Session, Law Firm Merger

NEW ORLEANS — A pair of real estate development companies and their partners hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Jan. 19 for H3C, an $80 million affordable housing and healthcare development in Central City

The project includes 192 residential units that are expected to bring activity to a stretch of Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard that has seen millions of dollars in investment since Hurricane Katrina. In addition, it will be home to a community health clinic operated by DePaul Community Health Centers.

Gulf Coast Housing Partnership and Alembic Community Development, the development partners, are hoping to demonstrate how affordable housing and access to healthcare can improve health outcomes for residents.

“Through our partnerships with healthcare providers, we have seen first-hand the impact that housing, whether positive or negative, has on someone’s health outcomes,” said GCHP President and CEO Kathy Laborde. “We hope that if we can quantify through our Health + Housing pilots, like H3C, that better housing leads to better health outcomes, healthcare payors will be more inclined to invest in affordable housing.”
