    ^I agree! I wonder what they'll put by Chili's?
  2. Baton Rouge City Profile

    I could see this, I was pre-approved for a pretty decent loan. Baton Rouge ranked No. 7 among top 10 cities for first-time homebuyers Baton Rouge is ranked No. 7 in the nation for the top 10 cities for first-time homebuyers, according to Realtor.com, the official website of the National Association of Realtors. While the share of first-time homebuyers has fallen again nationally for the third straight year and is at its lowest point in nearly three decades, the Capital City remains a strong market for those seeking to purchase their first homes, Realtor.com says. Among all of the markets Realtor.com studies, Baton Rouge has the highest share—52%— of mortgages by homebuyers between ages 25 and 34. Realtor.com studied the 100 largest U.S. metropolitian areas for mortgage availability, livability, job growth, inventory and affordability. Portland, Maine, topped the list at the No. 1. Other cities include: Philadelphia (No. 2); St. Louis (No. 3); Allentown, Pennsylvania (No. 4); Albany, New York (No. 5); Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (No. 6); Dayton, Ohio (No. 8); Minneapolis (No. 9); and Virginia Beach, Virginia (No. 10) Read the full ranking.

    ^Yeah, I guess I should have said a third location. The O'Neal location was the one I was thinking about.

    Here's a snippet of this article which says another Hobby Lobby will be opened. I wonder if they are going to move one or open a second. "Baton Rouge area retail vacancies rise but market still solid, expert says For example, Rooms To Go is leaving its current 55,000-square-foot location on Siegen Lane and moving into a 40,000-square-foot building down the street on 3.13 acres. “They’ve got better access. They’ve got better visibility. People are going to drive around to the back of the building,” he said. “This is kind of the wave of the new retail.” Hobby Lobby has signed a lease for the the current Rooms To Go building, Walker says"

    I was wonder what was holding those up, definitely interesting to know that they've all been sold.

    I'm sure it can definitely get tricky with that river but I do wonder how much of this is NIMBYism.
  7. Harveston Baton Rouge TND Development

    Construction to begin on latest section of Harveston Developers John Fetzer and Mike Wampold have begun construction on what they’re calling part “3A” of The Preserve, the 95-acre first phase of their sprawling planned unit development Harveston. Some 74 new lots will be developed in this part, adding to the total 230 lots already developed in the first two parts of The Preserve. Of those 230 lots, 110 are sold and another 30 are under contract. That leaves some 90 lots still unsold, including four model homes and 20 townhomes, but Fetzer says it’s not too soon to start developing the newest section. Future plans include completing The Preserve with a part 3B, developing a commercial area with office and retail space, and developing an adjacent community, the Lakes at Harveston on a noncontiguous, 300-acre tract that backs up to University Club.
  8. Baton Rouge Developbits

    New flagship Rotolo’s Pizzeria to anchor retail center at Burbank and Ben Hur A new flagship Rotolo’s Pizzeria will anchor a 16,000-square-foot retail development Mitch Rotolo is planning on newly purchased land at the corner of Burbank Drive and Ben Hur Road. Rotolo’s already has a location at 4343 Nicholson Drive. Rotolo says that restaurant is about 20 years old, so everything there will be moved to the new flagship location and the Nicholson Drive space will be marketed for lease for a new food service business. As for the rest of the development, Rotolo says interest is high, even though the property has not been formally marketed. The restaurateur hopes to attract a clothing boutique, hair salon or similar businesses to the development. He says the hope is to have about six total businesses, depending on how much space each one needs. From businessreport
  9. Workers expected to break ground on Central’s Settlement at Shoe Creek in June In the next 30 days, Southern Lifestyle Development, of Lafayette, will put out for bid the infrastructure work on the first phase of the Settlement at Shoe Creek, a massive 150-acre traditional neighborhood development planned in Central. Prescott Bailey, Southern Lifestyle Development area president, says crews are about 90% done with the engineering specs for the infrastructure work that will be completed in the first phase, for which construction should take about 10 months. The first phase of the TND being built along Sullivan Road, north of Wax Road, will feature 210 multifamily units in one apartment complex, 100 assisted living units, 115 single-family homes and 28,000 square feet of commercial space. from the buisness report

    Why does that make you sick?
  11. Plan Baton Rouge

    Teehee, I thought it was April Fools then when I didn't immediately see the disclaimer I thought it was real, lol!
  12. Greg, I am and I'm sure everyone else really appreciates you keeping us updated but could you please not post 20+ paragraph novellas + pictures...
  13. BREC

    One thing I find interesting though is how the article didn't mention that the area highlighted as the "Nicholson Corridor" is the footprint of Harveston. Did the developer and BREC cut some sort of deal they don't want us to ask about?
  14. BREC

    I don't remember that one but that is a much better option.

    I like the one on Airline since it's the biggest and I don't think Bluebonnet can realistically handle that traffic. I do wonder where the fairgrounds will go though? Maybe they could switch places??
