Last year, we announced our largest-ever workforce housing development, Rising Oaks, a 153-home neighborhood planned for Terrytown on the West Bank in Jefferson Parish. The land for this development was purchased at the end of 2021 and surveys and studies immediately ensued, with site preparation planned for fall 2022 and construction to begin next year.
Rising Oaks’ innovations go beyond new home designs. The community will feature 17.5 acres of interconnected green space open to the public. These spaces will also help with storm water management and flood mitigation—connected through pathways that run throughout both the parks and the residential spaces.
Rising Oaks will feature a range in sizes and floor plans, from one to four bedrooms along with a section of age-qualified homes and mixed-use properties. The new community will fit the existing midcentury aesthetics of Terrytown while still providing economic opportunities through affordable housing. It will be within walking distance of schools, stores, and healthcare.

“Since initially learning about this project, I have appreciated NOAHH’s commitment to working with the Council and community to identify shared objectives and thinking about how to use Rising Oaks as a platform for a long-term community development partnership with Terrytown, the West Bank, and Jefferson Parish.”– Marion Edwards, Jefferson Parish District 1 Councilman
