Botanical Heights Development (McRee Town)

Discuss renovations and new residential construction in South City -- defined by the area south of Interstate 44/55.
It's been 20 years since the strategic planning for the revitalization of McRee Town began. 10 years since I left as Executive Director of the Garden District Commission and McRee Town Redevelopment Corporation.

My question is, has Botanical Heights / McRee Town revitalization been a success? If so, how in your opinion. If not, why not in your opinion.

Wow. I just took a driving tour of the area west of Thurman, and I was blown away by the changes. I knew they've been working on this area, but I didn't realize the extent of the progress. Pretty much the entire neighborhood has been rebuilt. I really like the mix of rehabs and new, contemporary infill. Well done.
^ it's truly a madhouse of construction -- teardowns/infill/rehabs/you name it. Next up will be Tiffany as the next major hotspot.... tho almost all rehabs as the stock there is intact.
