  4. Sorry to hear that Dan326...it is sad. As young kids the Florida Blvd corridor was the place to be! Broadmoor theatre; Circle Bowl ; Cortana Mall; Billiards; Slick track racing ; Skate board park; haunted house ; Mary Lee donuts ....all gone. Florida Blvd Baptist church too.... The old 8 story Blue Cross bldg still remains vacant Sony's BBQ further east still does good business
  5. YIKES!!!!! ......rents starting at $1,500 a month for a one-bedroom?? Big traffic ; but no worse than if Buc -ees had been built i guess!

  7. Wonder WHEN / IF the 18-story Summit @ Southgate ever gets built; so many high-rise proposals have turned out to be pipe-dreams... >> It is supposed to go on the LEFT Tract between the Retail off Burbank and Staybridge suites & left Southgate Tower where the "brick-looking circle/roundabout pattern THANKS Cajun for the new developments! Interesting era when the Woodale Tower (12 floors) and Mid City (old Republic Tower/14 floors) were BOTH built back in the 60's and 70's.
  8. Thanks Dan326; the pic doesn't really do it justice! Had to be a Top 5 All time Sunset sky i had ever seen!

  11. Harveston TND Thread's last post was back in 2016....so it has been Archived "Frozen" on back pages.... Not a subscriber ...put liked to post Rendering Work underway on mixed-use section of Harveston https://www.businessreport.com/realestate/work-underway-on-mixed-use-section-of-harveston

  13. THANKS for posting that Dan326 Is this the rendering? That looks like the same location....posted this back in July of 2020 Too bad the could not have merged into a 7-story mid rise office tower with Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors on North Street + Louisiana Associated General Contractors that opted out of the 4th floor
  14. This is a Homicide Record Breaking thread ....but right on cue WAFB talks about Record Breaking Overdose deaths (mostly from fentanyl) 248 so far this year! Crazy! East Baton Rouge Parish surpasses record for overdose deaths https://www.wafb.com/2021/10/27/east-baton-rouge-parish-surpasses-record-overdose-deaths/ And ...Yep this virus is causing more collateral damage than we will ever know. + Record breaking Crime being broke in too many cities. San Francisco has a pathetic situation going on...
  15. Head for the midway, music and more: Greater Baton Rouge State Fair is back after year's absence https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/entertainment_life/article_95640624-2ac3-11ec-ad6c-23e7afb9a06d.html
  16. New 84,000' Sq Ft Louisiana Farm Bureau office building UNDER CONSTRUCTION .....from back of Commerce Circle next to Towne Center
  17. Well said Dan326. They call it the Dirty South for a reason. Check out Greg Dukes mixtapes late Friday at Midnight on local COX Channel #20 Pelican Network. I lost a buddy to a stray bullet back in 2012 just a few blocks from LSU. Last year the homicide record was a record breaker ; it is being shattered this year. And you have some elements in the country that want to defund police and make chaos reign. Doesn't help that fentanyl laced drugs imported from China to the Mexican coast are also rampaging across the city. All the druggies along I-12 interchanged has increased dramatically . The amount of over dose deaths is eye popping too! There was an old "Crime Thread" hidden on back pages ; could have easily been the most active Topic thread here on UP if we really wanted.
  18. 294-bed luxury apartment complex for LSU students to include flat screens, private study rooms near the intersection of West Parker Avenue and Gourrier Avenue on a triangle-shaped lot. 294 units @ LSU = 6 stories ....295 units @ Millerville = 3 stories
  19. Sounds like the proposed Waters @ Millerville 295 unit- apartment development was APPROVED yesterday at the Planning Commission meeting. 5 buildings ; three stories each. Interesting choice for a name ...a Tribute to 2016? Many signs were put in the area in opposition to this....prompting a crowd of 160?? Can not locate this in Business Report or The Advocate etc http://hdlegisuite.brgov.com/attachments/2021/PUD-4-12 FDP PLANS_B6D4E801.pdf
  20. I-10 Greenway Corridor Survey As part of I-10 interstate improvements in Baton Rouge, this project (i10br.com) will construct a greenway within the interstate corridor between Expressway Park (Myrtle Street) and E. Polk Street Park (between Carolina Street and Dalrymple Drive.) The result will be a pedestrian and bicycle friendly pathway linking downtown to City Park Lake and beyond! We invite you to watch this brief 8-minute video providing an overview of the I-10 improvements project generally, and also information about the greenway. This video was presented during an August 19, 2021 in-person event. Afterward, proceed through this exercise using the forward and back buttons at the bottom of each page. https://new.maptionnaire.com/q/4da9l2kt7z26
  21. First units at I Rivermark Centre scheduled for completion in mid-2022 https://www.businessreport.com/realestate/first-units-at-i-rivermark-centre-scheduled-for-completion-in-mid-2022
  22. Glad everything worked out ok Dan 326. No doubt it could have been worse in BR. Wonder if places like Houma; Galiano ; Leeville ; Grand Isle; etc will ever be the same? My bad not responding sooner. Football websites have been side tracking me some. Hoping more positive things are in store for BR . Here's 3 things you need to know about the Baton Rouge economy through 2023 https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/business/article_ae5f3e52-22d3-11ec-8e00-33061f23e6d6.html The Baton Rouge metro area is forecasted to reach 415,300 jobs by the end of 2023, up from 393,400 jobs in 2021 as the region recovers from an economic downturn spurred by the coronavirus pandemic. By the end of the year, the Baton Rouge region is expected to recover 81% of the jobs lost during the economic downturn in 2020, according to the Louisiana Economic Outlook.
