Rentals

Disasters do not only affect homeowners. Renters may be even more vulnerable to disasters as they tend to be lower-income, and the price of un-damaged housing often rises after a large disaster. To better weather future disasters, low-income renters need resilient homes that are affordable to them. Through SBP’s rental units, we provide stable and safe housing options to low- and moderate-income renters. Currently, SBP has 125 rental units in New Orleans, with plans to build more in New Orleans, Houston, and other communities where we operate.

St. Peter Apartments is a 50-unit, mixed-income, energy-efficient apartment community that is centrally located near Whole Foods, Lafitte Greenway and the VA Hospital in New Orleans’s Mid City neighborhood. The St. Peter is Louisiana’s first net-zero energy apartment building and offers one- and two-bedroom units, off-street parking, and community space.
