You may have heard the buzz about the Boulevard.  The many years of efforts and investment in revitalization are now bearing fruit.  There is a rapid succession of new openings of businesses and offices, expansion of existing non-profits and establishment of additional cultural anchors, such as the Southern Food and Beverage Museum and the New Orleans Jazz Market.

In 2015 Dryades Public Market opened at 1307 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. in the former Myrtle Banks school, along with offices and the Creative Alliance of New Orleans gallery on the third floor.

Roux Carré: The Food Port of New Orleans opened at the end of 2015.  This initiative by Good Work Network serves as an incubator for food businesses and provides the neighborhood with interesting and affordable food choices.


Groundbreaking for the Roux Carré site, long a vacant lot, took place in October 2014.

The former power station for streetcars (built in the 1920's) had seen better days.
