  1. That's a great view! Nike? Nico? Could be Mike...LOL! Whatever it is, his "planewriting" isn't the best.

    Rouzan TND

    I'm going by information in MLS on the couple of "Spec houses" that were built and put on the market by Rouzan's agents. They have put two on the market. One sold after staying on the market for 547 days, and the other has ben on the market for a year and a half. Looks like 14 lots have sold though. (It was late when I was looking at this and it was a long day.) For some time, 70808 has been, and still is, the highest demand zipcode in Baton Rouge. With the lakes and overpass areas being the only part of Baton Rouge that has the ability to be walkable on any level, I expect it to remain th

    Rouzan TND

    At this point, only one (1) of the homes built has been sold (it's pending sale and won't close until March) and the asking price per foot for the other finished home in Rouzan TND (which is what it's called in MLS specifically) has dropped from $250+ per foot to under $200 per foot. ($193 to be exact.) Ithas been on the market for over a year. Perhaps, like at Perkins Rowe, Mr. Spinosa is starting to see that Baton Rouge residents are quite choosey if they have to drop over $200 per foot and a bit skeptical of developer planning until they see it with their own eyes. Last year, the only neigh
  4. In a former life I traveled the Northeast doing live roadshows in Costco stores. Think infomercials, but live. My point is that I spent a lot of time in stores that were all in some of the nation's largest markets. These stores did the kind of volume that Baton Rouge could only dream about. Some of these stores had less parking than what's on the site plan for here, had fewer surface street outlets and there were no problems, even on weekends when volume spiked.

    D.R. Horton buys first two filings of Long Farm By Stephanie Riegel Published Jan 23, 2013 at 3:00 pm (Updated Jan 23, 2013) National homebuilder D.R. Horton has signed a purchase agreement for an undisclosed price to acquire all 65 lots in the first filing of The Long Farm as well as the undeveloped lots in the second filing. The Long Farm is a TND on Barringer Foreman Road that Russell Mosely is developing on a 237-acre tract of land that once belonged to his legendary grandfather, the late U.S. Sen. Russell Long. Mosely had previously signed purchase agreements with 10 local bui
  6. I answered my own question with the help of my buddy Google. (We go way back. ) Looks like they are going to demolish the end of Dawnadale, diverting it closer to the store and curve it around the south side of the property to meet Celtic Drive. You'll be able to get to it from Bluebonnet by way of Celtic Drive, Airline, of course, or turn down Partridge off Jefferson and come in "the back way," beside the I-12 exit ramp. And, according to several sources, the plans have been approved. Here's the site plan.
  7. I agree cajun. That site is easily accessible from everywhere. Any ideas on how they may create the outlet to Bluebonnet? Are they going to widen Celtic drive, perhaps? (I'm asking because I'm working on a deal that's in close proximity. This could affect it positively.
  8. I've heard about this place. Much higher end than JJ's. Jimmy John's is filling the fast/simple/quality niche while they seem to be more focused on putting a gourmet/high end spin on a deli concept. I don;t know if they have plans to go national and franchise their concept, but if they do, this is the place to prove it's merit.

    Thanks! I don't know if I'll know how to act around people who actually "LIKE" stats. This could be dangerous. It's kind of an addiction for me but gets thrown to the wayside a lot because of other business priorities.

    Hi guys! (and gals if there are any here) My name's Mike. I'm a (semi) Baton Rouge native who moved around a lot and has called Red Stick home since graduating college and moving back here in 1994. I never knew this forum existed until I Googled a development to see who owned it here in South Baton Rouge. And here I am. I was thrilled to find it! I'm a lover of construction, progress, and all that's good about Baton Rouge, including LSU Football. With background in the creative/marketing field, and experience in investing, remodeling and some construction, I think in another life I was
