Lincoln Beach abuts Lake Pontchartrain in the Little Woods neighborhood of eastern New Orleans. Started as a segregated Black swimming area in the late 1930’s, the site underwent a major renovation in 1954. Thereafter, until its closing in 1964, Lincoln Beach provided a summer long festival of water sports, carnival rides, music and food.
Construction Cost: $450M+
ONE + ACRE of land can be configured in various ways to accommodate as few as 25 or as many as 100 veterans. We propose 50 as the ‘Best’ number due to the functionality; production and support teams that can be structured with 50 individuals and lower impact on the surrounding community. The facility will provide housing, centralized food preparation, work out and office and learning facilities, vegetable and fish production along with job training and manufacturing facilities and support personnel allowing the facility to produce more sophisticated affordable housing alternatives for the masses, which can be shipped or deployed to other facilities.
Combined with water production and catchment, solar and wind energy production and roof side gardens and patios the community will function as an attractive contained facility capable of supporting many temporary individuals and even some permanent families (with increased density).
The core of the facility is built using re-purposed shipping containers along with ancillary items such as steel trusses, metal roofs and entryway hoods, flower planters, low voltage lighting, fencing etc. The intent is to provide a high-class modern looking facility for the participants and the surrounding community.
The initial container facilities will be deployed from our Texas fabrication facility nearly move-in ready. Delivered and set into an array of various designs the facility components can adapt to virtually any location.
