Tulane University rethinks development project

March 5, 2007
Development's progress had been set back because of Hurricane Katrina.

Tulane University in New Orleans has put the brakes on its controversial plan to build a $150 million mini-campus at the former Uptown Square shopping center. The development, including a 12-story, 202-unit apartment complex for students, would have been completed this year but for Hurricane Katrina. Instead, major portions of the long-proposed project, which called for nearly 430,000 square feet of parking garages, residences and other university facilities, could be redesigned, delayed for years or scrapped.
