I'm just guessing that's were it will be located.

Baton Rouge attorney Spencer Calahan planning $8.5M downtown office building

Spencer Calahan has begun work to build a new five-story office building in downtown Baton Rouge near the Pastime Restaurant at 252 South Blvd. that will cost the attorney between $8.5 million and $9 million.

GraceHebert Architects is designing the building, which will be located at the corner of South Boulevard and St. Louis Street.

Work crews have already started demolishing a number of aging houses on the site, and construction of the building is set to begin this summer. Calahan expects the building to be completed about 14 months after ground is broken.

Looking forward taking pics of the on- going construction projects around the area!

So that's why my friend had to vacate the house you see on the corner. 

Renderings look fantastic, it will fit in perfectly on that block.

Neat looking AGC building.   

 

As far as the Eylsian....the original came out a lot cheaper looking than the renderings.   Not wild about it.

What's going to replace the demolished Public Defender's Bldg??

 

Rhorer said space left over from demolition of the Public Defender's building likely will be used to expand the East River Center Parking Garage.
