"planning on a scale that resembles the worst of the urban renewal era."

New Urban News published a great piece today about the failings of the LSU/VA hospital site in Lower Mid-City.

The blog post/article quotes a number of the individuals most intimately familiar with the drawbacks of the project - and links to this blog.

While I think the house moving aspect of the project was ultimately a positive - even if the roofs did have to come off because of serious time constraints - the piece nevertheless gives a better understanding of the laundry list of concerns the continue to encircle the site.
