    NOPD increasing officer visibility on Lafitte Greenway

    NEW ORLEANS -- NOPD is investigating a mugging on the Lafitte Greenway in Mid-City.

    For people who use the path for exercise or to get around town, hearing about trouble on the trail is very concerning.

    "I hate to even hear about that kind of stuff, you know because when I get out here and run, I feel safe," Kelan Barton said. "But, when I hear about something like that, it makes me a little bit hardened and I'm like woah, do I need to look over my shoulder?"

    "You tell me that someone got mugged, it kind of threw me off a little because I ride this strip regularly," Cardell Wright said. "I work for Gerhold Electric. I ride my bike back and forth this way."

    Brand new housing on Lafitte Greenway contributes to ‘heart of the city’

    In a string of new development on the Lafitte Greenway, three newly-constructed homes are bringing residential options to the “heart of the city.”

    Atlas Greenway Partners, LLC, are readying to open three newly-constructed homes on St. Louis Street, directly facing the Greenway. Monty Lunn, co-founder of Atlas, said the project is a “bigger-picture” investment, since the Greenway has a chance at becoming a vein of transportation, development and living within New Orleans.

    “People don’t know about the area, don’t know what’s been done with it, and they’re blown away,” Lunn said.

    The St Louis Project consists of three near identical double gallery single family homes located directly on the greenway, a few blocks from Whole Foods and University Medical Center. Four municipal lots were converted into three in order to provide additional off-street parking and a sizeable back yard, Lunn said.

    All the residences are about 2,000 square feet, with three bedroom, two and a half bath, laundry rooms and a front balcony.
