Location:Baton Rouge, Louisiana
The catalyst for the development was a new 150,000 square foot, six-story office building in the heart of downtown Baton Rouge. The office tower consists of six total floors, each nearly 25,000 square feet, with four of the floors serving IBM and the remaining two hosting CPRT, BRAF, and several other tenants. The mixed-use project also includes an 80-unit residential rental tower, 12,000 square feet of retail, and a parking garage with 408 spaces. The seven story residential tower contains a mix of studios, one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two bedroom, and three-bedroom units. Amenity spaces include a fitness area, a party room, and a pool terrace on the fourth floor overlooking the river.
The architecture of the new buildings draws heavily from Baton Rouge’s art deco vernacular, while still providing a contemporary, high-tech expression for the IBM Office Building. In addition to improving and activating streetscapes on all sides of the redevelopment, a spectacular fourth-floor roof garden at the base of the office and residential buildings allows office workers and residents a bucolic, interactive view of downtown Baton Rouge and the Mississippi River. Future development near this site will include luxury townhomes along Main Street.
