what's HAPPENING A quick glance at construction projects around New Orleans By Nathan Lott | Photos by Claire Adams Pierre Capdau School ADDRESS: 3821 Franklin Ave. OWNER: PCA Investments, LLC ARCHITECT: Michael Lee Studio DEVELOPMENT: Construction is underway to transform the former Pierre A. Capdau School in Edgewood Park into an 80-unit senior housing development. All units will be affordable for low-income residents thanks to HUD funds allocated by the Louisiana Housing Corp. and the Housing Authority of New Orleans. The project includes construc- tion of a new building on the grounds as well as renovation of the three-story, 1922 Beaux Arts-style school. In 2012, the Orleans Parish School Board auctioned the shuttered school, designed by E.A. Christy, and its two-acre parcel.
