On the surface, I don't see the big deal, but the doubles to dorms stuff has really not generated a lot of trust or goodwill for Tulane in the community either, so I get the suspicion. In the end, what people think isn't going to impact if Tulane gets its way on this or not (and shouldn't), but Tulane should work to be more self aware of animosity moving forward because it could eventually bite them in the rear. That doesn't make this a bad idea, or not worth it. It very well might be. The streets could CERTAINLY use better repair and upkeep. Of all the anthills to die on, this doesn't seem to be one of them IMO.
I am not sympathetic to those nimbys. These are already college neighborhoods and they are in disrepair. Also as we know Tulane is one of tbe top 2 largest private employers in New Orleans and drivers massive growth and revenue to the area. They are revitalizing a big chunk of downtown. Time to throw some weight around. Those nimbys should worry more about crime and less about Tulane.
I agree. I would discredit anyone that would be against this, and Tulane should too. Most of those people just like to complain and I’m still upset we have into them with Yulman construction. Tulane is trying to turn what is becoming a shíthole city back into something respectable that benefits those who are complaining.

If you look at my previous post and look at Google Maps of the specific blocks this story references, there is ZERO reason any NIMBYs should complain, other than simply being proverbial "Karens" and trying to nose into anything Tulane does. Almost every building and almost every foot of those roads in question is on, or touching, campus.

An mba definitely seems doable ( and a fun time). I believe Tulane has a B School program where you can do an undergrad B school degree and get your MBA and graduate in 5 years the way they integrate and streamline classes. Not 100 %, but 90% sure on that.

Are these properties located on the west side of Yulman?
As I read through the comments, these properties are NOT on the WEST side of YULMAN, correct?
No, Tulane is not buying multiple million dollar Audubon Boulevard homes
