A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday (January 15, 2019) hosted by BGC Advantage and the Bogalusa Housing Authority. The subsidized affordable development of Pine Trace Homes I and II will be at five separate sites in Bogalusa, Louisiana: 1015 Union Avenue, 600 Brazos Street, 1200 Highland Park Loop, 700 River Terrace Drive, and 915 East 4th Street. The newly-named sites are Union Pointe (formerly Sunset Acres and Sunset Addition), Ivy Trace (formerly Bogue), The Oaks (formerly River Terrace), and Lumerton Cove (formerly Highland Park).
By January of 2020, 232 newly renovated units will be available to Bogalusa's most shelter-needy residents. The project is expected to create 281 jobs during the construction phase and 69 permanent jobs, all good for the local economy.
