  12. Mid City

    Hope Electric Depot will be a smash hit on the West edge of Mid City IS THE ELECTRIC DEPOT A MODEL FOR REDEVELOPMENT? The Electric Depot development between downtown and Mid City represents a model for blight elimination, affordable housing and the type of mixed-use “destination” project that can transform the city, the people behind the project said today.

  14. Louisiana State University

    That's one elaborate plan! The proposed Library looks nice...what better location than near the Stadium! lol With the removal of Middleton Library ; the shape of the Quad's green space will be of a cross! A New South Quad should be cool! Interesting the Nicholson extension will be re-configured & South Quad drive will have an improved intersection on Highland Rd. Nice location for a Roundabout at West Lakeshore & East Parker
  15. Baton Rouge Transportation

    They want to make Kansas City Southern line safer in the city. For the six crossings that would be permanently shuttered, the state would build connecting roads parallel to the railroad to link roads blocked by the rail line. If the proposal moves forward??
