Historic Green is about the possibilities. About knowing a place. Respecting its rich heritage for future generations. And seeing the promise of sustainability to create healthier, safer, more livable communities. Historic Green represents a blending of the past, the present and the future through its commitment to sustainable design and historic preservation. What was, meets what could be.

New Orleans’ Holy Cross Neighborhood and the Lower Ninth Ward offer one path to what we’re calling “sustainable preservation”. Nowhere else could it happen on such a scale as here: an entire community brought to its knees in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Struggling to recover and rebuild. To restore in a way that makes it even better than before. We recognize the social and environmental causes that brought such devastation, while being committed to assisting in changes neighborhood by neighborhood to secure a better future.
