||New Orleans has a unique opportunity to redefine itself and be an example for other recovering communities. We have the chance to incorporate sustainable design from the ground up and encourage the re-use of existing buildings. Demolishing Phillis Wheatly would remove an historic, existing structure that defines and era and already incorporates sustainable design. This building is a necessary part of our history, as integral to the area as a shotgun house or a creole cottage. It is our mark on modern design and shows that we are a progressive city.
