^ Brown & Root doesn't have to be Taller than the 450'ft State Capitol...just needs to be Taller than the (2nd Tallest)  310'ft One American Place

Looking north on Lafayette Street...a few blocks away from the Hilton ....525 Lafayette at IBM Block ( far left) :shades:

Yep it worked!  Those pics are very nice Geaux Downtown :shades:  Thanks for sharing them! Always enjoy the visit...i remember those 525 Lafayette/IBM shot you took:thumbsup:

Wanted your opinion (mentioned in other thread/aricle in BR Business Report) about BR possibly re-visiting height limitations??...the story was vague; maybe a survey will be given to downtown business owners about there opinion.  >>>  Fact is nothing in BR has been built over 12 floors since the late 80's...that's too long...& implementing a height limitation in the CBD/Riverfront would be a major step backwards...& BR's Tallest Buildings 1932, 1974, 1968 says a lot...other similar cities continue to go more "Vertical" with some sleek looking towers

For the record... stoked as anybody abt all of Downtown's progress the past 15 years...and a fan of all the different buildings 5 to 12 stories  / Shaw Center for the Arts is one of the best things to happen downtown; like the contrast w Old State Capitol; North Blvd Town Square is cool ; Onyxx nice addition to Arts Block,...further down Lafayette St IBM Block is a great anchor, II City Plaza & Courthouse in the CBD.... from the ground up/or redeveloped like Commerce Bldg; 440 on Third w Matherne's & new hotels etc.....Capitol Park was also one of the best things to happen

The soon to be Iconic Structure at the Old City Dock of the Water Campus; just south of the I-10 Mississippi River Bridge

The building will be headquarters for The Water Institute of the Gulf, and a research and interpretive center. It will be located on the historical Baton Rouge City Dock that was completed in 1926. The 33,000-square-foot, $22-million building will consist of an interpretive gallery, exhibit areas, offices, research labs and meeting and conference facilities.

Have to wonder if it would be possible to clean up the batture strip between the Belle and The Water Institute Dock.   It is a pretty big chunk of real estate, and most of the year it is dry.    Seems like an ideal place for soccer fields or green space.

A green space and a dedicated skatepark under the bridge (there's already a makeshift one there) would be awesome.
