Washington and Broad St
In 2013, green coast completed the renovation of four LEED certified historic, blighted buildings at the corner of Washington and broad. This effort has breathed new life into the once thriving commercial corridor. The buildings, which had stood vacant since the levee failures after hurricanes Katrina and Rita, are now home to South Broad Community Health Center, Laurel Street Bakery, Joule energy, Green Coast’s offices, the Propeller Social Innovation incubator, Nola micro schools, and iDIYa, New Orleans first maker space.
Together, these groups have created a thriving hub of entrepreneurship that is attracting new enterprises and development to the corridor. Wayward Owl will open a new brewery down the street in coming months, and Roulaison Distilling Company is the newest addition to our group of tenants in the project.
