The New Projects

From the mucky ashes of the Magnolia (C.J. Peete) projects, new housing construction has risen along Simon Bolivar Avenue over the summer.

I snapped these photos while biking past, and I recalled biking a similar route in bewilderment at the new world around me back in August of 2007.  I have to ask - what exactly is going to be different? What exactly made razing the old buildings such a superior option?

Plus, financing for the rebuilding of the public housing complexes has now hit turbulence.
