The landscape is nearly barren at the future site of the Veterans Affairs hospital, bottom, which is expected to open in 2014. Nearly 70 houses have been moved out of the demolition zone to other land in Mid-City.

Meanwhile, the state teaching hospital site, directly behind the VA, awaits site preparation. Together, the two footprints cover more than 70 acres, enough for at least five Superdomes.
