More housing boom in the LSU area

West Parker Blvd; condo's like these are spring-up in the area

snaphappy026ko8.jpg

snaphappy083px1.jpg

Sorry for powerlines; wanted include as much of this massive development as possible

Southgate Towers (three 8-story condo's); parking garage(back not shown), restuarants, retail, bookstores, cofee shop, health clubs, etc.

Work is begining on an 10-story condo tower;and 6-story 121-room Staybridge Suites hotel. The next phase was approved for an 18-story tower( when??) I can't wait!!! Hard to believe they would go that tall!

Look closely to the left you see Tiger Stadium; strain your eyes you barely see the Mississippi River Bridge(far left)

Great photos Richy. :thumbsup: I went to LSU for a summer course and on my lunch break I walked to the North Gate and thought I was in downtown. But then I rememebered that if downtown had all that activity, it wouldn't need a master plan. I rememeber one day I tried to walk to the SouthGate towers and got lost and let me tell you something, the middle of summer is not a good time to get lost. :lol:

If any of ya'll ever get the chance to go there on a week day , try to check out the Museum of Natural History. The have all these taxodermy displays that are really neat. But the hours are ridiculous :weekdays 9 to 5pm. :angry:

Nice shots of the campus area, man!! That's quite a housing boom as well.

This photo instantly reminded me of Hirsch Coliseum in Shreveport. See this photo and then scroll down to see the Hirsch...

snaphappy092tn1.jpg

This is the only photo I could find that comes close to the angle I wanted to show. If I had a shot of the entrance, you'd REALLY see the similarities.

But still, look at the roofs and compare! And yes, Hirsch's roof IS the exact same color and the facade of the building is almost identical as well...

^You're right they seem almost the same. Is that at the Shreveport branch of LSU?

Thanks yall...it took way toooo looong with computer freezing; imageshack,etc.

Thanks Brian for sharing the similarities with Hirsh, that's interesting stuff :thumbsup:

Dan, Shreveport's Fairgrounds are actually located in the city limits(almost in the middle). Baton Rouge's State Fairgrounds are SE edge of the parish in the burbs down Airline Hwy. approaching Bayou Manchac and Ascension Parish. Wonder why??

Independence Park would have been a cool location for a fairgrounds (in the center like Shreveport); but they filled it up with needed Public service operations; State Police; DMV, others, etc. The other side has a theatre, botanical gardens, library.

Cool, you know I haven't seen any of the other SEC campuses outside of Fayetteville's. It certainly looks different than what I'm accustomed to seeing up here. But it's nice to finally get a look at and around the campus down there. :D

Very nice photos and some great info, Richy! On weekends, the College Town area around LSU has what is probably the best nightlife in the state outside of New Orleans. And the housing boom going on in that same area is absolutely amazing as well! :thumbsup:

Tiger stadium is just awesome. I love that place. I hope that they don't add a new section over the north end-zone and block out the best part with the arches.

Really, though. I love that stadium.
