    Details

    The Development is “The Page Woodson Development” that includes the historic Douglass High School totally restored and repurposed into 60 Residential housing units and 21000sq ft of community space that includes The Auditorium, Multipurpose Room, and commercial offices. The South Wing (community space) also houses historical photographs of life at the school before 1934 but until 1955. In addition we’ve captured some of “artifacts” from the building over the years, and continue to celebrate the history of the school and community in the built environment. The Seven is a group of 80 market rate residential units just north of the school. The project is named after 7 notable and influential personalities over the years (Inman Page, Zelia Breaux, Ross Abrams, Charlie Christian, Ralph Ellison, Henrietta B. Foster, F.D. Moon). The community selected these persons and as we move forward with development we will ultimately incorporate historical markers or plagues within the property telling a little bit about each of the personalities. The project is embarking on its 3rd phase and will also have a 4th/5th phase that will include an educational/interactive/commemorative plaza. We don’t know yet what types of history or stories will be incorporated within the design but as the theme continues and we engage community those stories will be reflected. We indeed see this as a destination for visitors— a living museum of sorts where visitors come to a community with all of the usual amenities, but in addition can experience history in a living way. The project has won numerous awards and after October 15, 2018 an announcement about one of the most prestigious national awards will be made.
