— After sitting vacant for nearly 40 years, a city-owned incinerator site may find new life as a commercial development.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu says the city is working with the Louisiana Land Trust to demolish the former incinerator property in the Algiers section.

New Orleans CityBusiness reports business groups believe the tract at Hendee Street and General de Gaulle Drive can be redeveloped.

Landrieu spokesman Tyler Gamble says the city and Louisiana Land Trust are splitting a Community Development Block Grant to finance demolition of the metal incinerator. The work is expected to cost about $300,000 and should begin by summer.
