City Will Schedule Gym Demo/Replacement Around Super Bowl

The city of New Orleans will finish demolishing the old B. W. Cooper Housing Development’s Rosenwald Center before the Super Bowl and will have the lot cleared of debris.

Work on the replacement facility won’t begin until after the Super Bowl.

The decision is just one, of many, that will help make the city as pleasing as possible to the eyes of visitors.

The Rosenwald Center was opened in 1950.  Hurricane Katrina caused significant damage.

The city will replace the gym with a 24,000 square foot building that will include a gym, stage, meeting rooms, restore swimming pool, and snack bar.

The new building will cost $6.3 million and will be paid for with federal, state, and insurance money.
