Renaissance Gateway Apartments

Baton Rouge, La.

After failed attempts by other developers to renovate the property, Community Develoment, Inc., in collaboration with 4321 Associates, has completely redeveloped a troubled 40-year-old property in Baton Rouge, La.

Now called Renaissance Gateway Apartments to signify its rebirth, the development has a permanent supportive housing contract with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals to provide 32 affordable rental units for individuals and families at risk of homelessness and for persons with disabilities.

Prior to its redevelopment, many of the property’s 208 units were inhabitable due to plumbing failures, mold, and other problems. It was so bad some residents were even donning raincoats each time they used their bathrooms to avoid leaks from the toilets in the apartments above.
