This week WWNO has been exploring Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard. The Central City corridor is home to new nonprofits and business ventures, after a redevelopment effort of more than a decade.

Today we wrap up coverage with a conversation just off the Boulevard, on Baronne Street. It’s the new home of Tulane City Center, a venture of the university’s School of Architecture, with a strong service learning component.

Recently appointed Director Maurice Cox is also associate dean for community engagement. He gave some history and context to what’s happening on O.C. Haley, starting with City Center’s new home.
