Schonberg Care Buys Community in New Orleans, Plans Renovations

NEW ORLEANS, La. — Schonberg Care has acquired St. Margaret’s at Belleville Assisted Living in New Orleans.

The new owner-operator renamed the property The Suites at Algiers Point and planned a multi-million-dollar renovation project.

The community is approximately five miles east of downtown New Orleans, just a few blocks off the Mississippi River. Originally the Belleville Elementary School, The Suites at Algiers Point offers 53 assisted living and memory care apartments. Floor plans range from 300 to 800 square feet.

For the renovation project, Schonberg Care partnered with local partners including Sheri Daigle of SD Design and Joe Boudreaux of JE Boudreaux Services.

The main structure of the original Belleville School — a three-story, red-brick building — was completed in 1898, and wooden annexes were built in 1907 and 1925. The school’s makeover to a senior living community happened in 1989.
