  1. For the Animals safety sake...i'd shy away from that location ..if a serious mishap were to ever occur at time to evacuate them...but i like the Amphitheatre idea & floating stage Would maybe like to see a cleaned up Warehouse District possibly set -up (like Antrell said) Wish they could re-develop the BR Waterworks site; on River Road in front of Shaw Center for the Arts into a Louisiana/Swamp-native Riverarium-type attraction to enhance the Cultural District
  2. That's an interesting location...wonder how Woodland Ridge residents would take to the idea? esp with the Choo-choo Train running around the periphery near their fence-lines... A couple years ago the idea had been floated to make New Zoo location off I-12/East of O'Neal Lane in the heavily wooded area at the old proposed LaVie movie studio; behind Wal-mart/Medical Center...they probably need to leave that a nature preserve + sure it got plenty flood water Current city leaders & pro NBR crew will argue the current zoo location would have more space for future expansion
  3. Going the way of the ole' Bon Marche Cortana Mall tenant experiencing 1990s-era vibe as retailers close major anchor stores
  4. I know...just trying to get the most bang for the buck $$$....just Can't see them ever building 2 new Intracoastal Waterway Bridges....just One new bridge is asking a lot for this financially Ca$h strapped state. Maybe they will also revisit the Westbank Expressway paralleling La1/Industrial Corridor..that would go all the way down to I-310 in St.Charles Parish (Luling/Hahnville) ....a win-win...for the Largest Metro & Hurricane Evacuation Routes..but i'm sure there will be multiple studies that take at least 10 more years
  5. The RED route should be choice #1....though Brusly residents didn't want it in their community. That proposed route would be just far enough away to appease them. What do you think about the Route tying into Hwy 415 dead-end w new Intracoastal Waterway Bridge? Guessing going further West might be safer bet? I like how you have it hooking back up w Hwy 190 The "Orange" route would be a nice compromise Hate to break it to them..but the Iberville/Ourso Yellow route looks afflicted Thanks for drawing that up
  6. Here's one EBR Flood Map...don't remember posting anything like this Here is a MORE detailed map when you zoom in; even shows houses effected...i'd say it's abt 98% accurate
  7. Spanish Town overpass would be my TOP Candidate...Elysian II is about to start up...there is plenty room (vacant space) for more residential projects similar in size
  8. LOL...Like the ideas Cajun; keep em' coming! ...Had to go back to All2Neat /PAGE #3... started this thread lil' over a year ago " Deck Parks" Here was my(Copy/Paste) replied to it too All2Neat...are you referring to Klyde Warren Park in Dallas? If so...there are so many workable components making that a success..connecting Uptown with the Arts/Theatre District Boston's Big Dig comes to mind...where a 1.5 mile linnear-park was created cutting around the Financial District thru the heart of their downtown...there were plenty of obstacles Phoenix has a cool one along I-10 that has a park with library & museum on top Mid-town Atlanta has a smaller version pocket-park at Tech Square That would be pretty cool to have the "Park Deck" in BR along I-110 flanking east downtown...however i think they are about to invest a lot of $$ on improved /neon? lighting underneath the continual overpass for several blocks? Actually there is a sunken stretch of I-110 that briefly runs East/West near Memorial Stadium...but dont think it would work there Like Antrell...i too like wide tree-line boulevards ...just not taking the place of I-110
  9. Was hoping for some feedback..Thanks Cajun Cruising up Jefferson Hwy Tapestry Park looks impressive from the road behind Panera Bread in BR's mini-Beverly Hills District.....just looks better than the plethora of run-of-mill 3-story condo's all over the place... BR's Tallest Residential Bldgs had been hideous Dinosaurs....Kirby Smith at LSU... Presbyterian Apts (North Street)..and Swaggart's 12-story dorms ...until 525 Lafayette came at IBM Block; which is still maybe a close 3rd/4th?.... The Southgate Towers at LSU at 8-floors & The Standard at 6 are the Tallest around LSU (& soon to be West Parker condo's); the 5 floor Sterling at Burbank look excellent & dense flanking Southgate Towers...Crescent @ University Lake is a nice Mid-rise The 7-story Meridian Condo's(built in 80's boom) off South Sherwood Forest Blvd is still interesting to this day; a bit of an enigma I'd like to see more mid-rises 5 - 8 floors around BR besides just Downtown & LSU Of course River Place tower on the riverfront Yeah along w internet etc...Closed in Malls becoming relics of the mid-sized city like BR can only support an average of one these days...Mall of La. was the "Hammer"; Towne Center & Perkins Rowe were the "Nails"......dude at GNC said they might be there another year
  10. New plant buffers narrowing Third Street even more; in front of the newly renovated Commerce Bldg/Magpie Cafe (place looks really cool at night w bright lights)
  11. Wanted: Solution for Area Traffic......Capital Region Planning Commission seeking ideas in meeting & on-line *SURVEY ends March 26th
  12. Cool new Roundabout entrance to the LSU campus on Dalrymple @ West Lakeshore Hope to get more new Roundabout pics in the area soon....think they are cool alternative to the plethora stop-n-go intersections around BR; still think Lafayette/Youngsville will remain "Louisiana's Roundabout Capital"
  13. Tapestry at Bocage(124-units on 3.8 acres) off Jefferson Hwy behind Panera Bread Partial view...goes back pretty far... impressive how much larger 4-story apartments look than 3-stories Gives that area a bigger city feel
  14. Knock Knock Children's Museum at City Park off Dalrymple Drive Up on the hill Need a pic from I-10 City Park Lake Bridge
  15. Square 46 now going vertical ...will include residences, restaurants, cafes, boutiques, businesses and the gourmet food hall White Star Market. A game changer on Government Street in Mid City
