    That's nice. They should be able to do it justice. Maybe Alamo will return.
  2. Roundabouts/Traffic Circles?

    I think they already moved. I guess this fire station will be razed.
  3. The Water Campus

    I agree, it does look ok when you look at it with the other buildings. Also parts of the outer skin is infact a mesh/perforated.
  4. Baton Rouge Transportation

    Nice! I have to admit, I'll believe it when I see it.
  5. New Hotels

    Yup, it's better than a parking lot and from the looks of it better looking than the old Istrouma Hotel.
  6. Millerville Development

    That's probably a good thing. Seems like an awkward spot to build.
  7. Roundabouts/Traffic Circles?

    Whoa, lol! I feel like I've just become confident using the current intersection. Oh well, looks interesting.
  8. New Hotels

    Thanks! Didn't even realize I made it that high!

    New hotel under construction at I-12, Sherwood exit in Baton Rouge Construction has started on a 52-room Baymont Inn by Wyndham near the Interstate 12-South Sherwood Forest exit. The two-story hotel at 11255 Boardwalk Drive is an economy property, with rooms renting for an average of $79 a night, said Pinu Patel, whose company, Patel Construction is building the property. The hotel should be open by July, Patel said. This will be the first Baymont Inn in Baton Rouge. There are locations in Marrero, Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport, Lake Charles, Sulphur and Alexandria. http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/business/article_01853b94-df7c-11e7-868c-af62e3d638c0.html
  10. Baton Rouge Restaurants

    New sports bar and grill, Creole restaurant coming to Third Street downtown Principals from some of Baton Rouge’s most popular new eateries are teaming up to open two new establishments downtown in the building at 421 Third St.—a sports bar and grill, and a traditional Creole restaurant with a high-end private event space on its second floor. Dustin Malina, formerly the general manager at Overpass Merchant, is leading the team. His partners include Kalurah Street Grill co-owner Brad Watts and Jolie Pearl Oyster Bar general manager Eric Carnegie. Together, they plan to open The Bengal Tap Room, a sports bar and grill that will be located in the 3,000-square-foot space formerly occupied by The Draft House, which closed in late October. Adjacent to the bar, the partners are planning to open a traditional Creole restaurant, Cecilia, in the 3,000-square-foot space most recently occupied by Restaurant IPO, which closed in 2016. Above Cecilia, in the space that was once home to The Office bar and, more recently, The Break Room, will be a 6,000-square-foot private event space called The Loft at Cecilia that will be available for receptions, luncheons and corporate parties. Renovations to The Bengal Tap Room have been underway for several weeks and the bar is on track to open before the end of the year. Cecilia and The Loft at Cecilia should open in the first quarter of 2018. https://www.businessreport.com/article/new-sports-bar-grill-creole-restaurant-coming-third-street-downtown

    The Gap store is closing at the Mall of Louisiana The Gap is closing at the Mall of Louisiana, Jacob Wilson, the mall’s general manager, has confirmed. The retailer will exit its first floor space near JCPenney at the end of the year when its lease expires. “We are in negotiations with a national first-to-market retailer to backfill the location and look forward to sharing more information soon,” Wilson says via email. Gap Inc., which owns The Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, announced in September that it would close 200 underperforming Gap and Banana Republic stores over the next three years. The company said it is shifting its priorities to where customers are shopping by simultaneously increasing its presence in its more profitable locations while shedding lower productivity specialty locations. As the Mall of Louisiana searches for a retailer to fill The Gap’s space, the mall will welcome three new tenants in coming months—Amazing Chi, Smashburger and Burn Boot Camp. https://www.businessreport.com/article/gap-closing-mall-louisiana -------------------------------------------------- Maybe it'll be Zara or H&M. I don't shop there but I figure if everyone else has one and it's popular, we should have one too.

    I agree. Maybe they should have sold their brand to Amazon so they could covert then to Amazon stores.
  13. Mid City

    I agree, I really didn't think it was going to happen.
  14. Louisiana State University

    In a way I sorry like it's cause it's like a labyrinth but I definitely see how it's obsolete.
  15. Gonzales & Ascension Parish
