    Baton Rouge Inner Loop

    I'm all for it. I've always felt Airline should have been upgraded 40+ years ago to be a limited access freeway for this very purpose. Unfortunately, the leadership did not exist to make this happen.

    New Hotels

    Courtyard by Marriott headed to downtown Baton Rouge A Courtyard by Marriott is planned for downtown Baton Rouge. Marriott spokeswoman Nina Herrera-Davila said Friday that the hotel will have an estimated 147 rooms and be owned by developer Windsor Aughtry. Meanwhile, a list of locations on hotel management company Hospitality America Inc.’s website includes a downtown Courtyard by Marriott, scheduled in 2016. Representatives of Nashville, Tennessee-based Hospitality America and Windsor Aughtry, based in Greenville, South Carolina, are headlining a downtown development announcement set for 11 a.m. Monday at 260 Third Street, a parking lot and former location of a hotel. Mayor-President Kip Holden and Downtown Development District officials also are scheduled to be on hand. The event announcement contains few details, and officials did not respond to requests for information about the nature of the announcement. The site for Monday’s announcement is owned by Third Street Acquisition LLC, according to records at the East Baton Rouge Clerk of Court’s Office. Tom Adamek and Gordon LeBlanc Jr., partners in Stonehenge Capital, own Third Street Acquisition.

    It had to have been around Christmas times. I recall reading a story (many years ago) that said they stopped putting the strings of lights on the Capitol like in that picture for safety reasons. It would be cool to have the colored lights at the top again for special events.
