A Baton Rouge developer is proposing building a 250-unit apartment complex in the Warehouse District that would include two towers, both of which would exceed the height restrictions in that area.

One tower, which would face St. Charles Avenue, would be 17 stories and 180 feet tall. The other would face Julia Street and be 15 stories and 160 feet tall. No building in that area is supposed to be more than 125 feet tall.

Developer Tommy Spinosa, doing business as JTS Realty Services LLC, said that he will meet with architects with the Historic District Landmarks Commission today to begin preliminary work on gaining a variance for the height increase.
