A New Home Subdivision Proposed for Jefferson Parish

The West Bank in  Jefferson Parish has been waiting for the residential boom to hit since the expansion of the Huey P. Long Bridge in 2013. Jefferson Parish has very little land left to easily develop into big residential communities. The last large residential development in the area was in 2017, Live Oak Plantation Estates, with 76 lots. Today Guidry Land Development of Broussard proposed plans to develop a 46-lot subdivision along South Kenner Avenue close to the Mississippi River.
The new subdivision which went in front of the Planning Advisory Board last Thursday,  is called Asher Park and is located in Waggaman on the West Bank. Waggaman is an unincorporated community in Jefferson Parish on the West Bank of the Mississippi River. Set between Kenner and Harahan, this quaint, small community is just 15 miles from the city of New Orleans and is described as “the Northshore’s country living at its best.”

Originally Guidry Land planned for 50 lots that were on average 99 feet wide by 293 feet deep spanning across 29,000 square feet of area. The Planning Department nixed the 50 lots stating that the width was too narrow for parish law.  The new plan for 46 lots will have 100 feet across.

Landry Camardelle, president of the Waggaman Civic Association, is excited about the potential growth in the area. He is looking forward to seeing progress in the West Bank instead of weeds and neglected roads.
“It’s going to increase our tax base,” Camardelle said.
