The 50-year-old Magnolia Gardens complex is set for a $20 million revitalization grant in Beaumont on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2006. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will demolish existing structures and replace them with 75 public housing and 75 market-rate units.

Since these are older images, the project went ahead as planned and construction was still ongoing when I left Beaumont.
