H3C (Health, Culture, Commerce & Community) is a mixed-use health and housing development located on the site of a former dairy facility on historic Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in Central City, New Orleans. The project will bring 100 affordable apartments for families and 92 for seniors, along with an on-site Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), additional commercial storefront space, and open space for residents. The FQHC operated by Ascension DePaul will provide primary and pediatric care, mental and behavioral health services, and a pharmacy. H3C expects to be the first Fitwel-certified development in Louisiana, a building rating system created by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention to guide building design and operations to improve the health of occupants.
