1200 Brickyard Lane
Client: Commercial Properties Realty Trust
1200 Brickyard Lane, for Commercial Properties Realty Trust, lies within The Water Institute of the Gulf Campus located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The Water Institute of the Gulf Campus is an exciting new office and research development on 32 acres alongside the Mississippi River and was formed to bring together the finest collection of engineering and science experts to address and advance innovation in coastal restoration and hurricane protection practices in Southwest Louisiana. 1200 Brickyard Lane joins another Antunovich Associates project, 150 Terrace Street (completed in 2016) which is fully occupied as the Coastal Restoration Protection Agency’s headquarters. The new 4 story structure includes 96,000 SF of Class A office space. Tenants include The Lemoine Company (General Contractor for The Water Institute of the Gulf Campus), Stantec, and a future SCIF space in conjunction with Louisiana State University.
The architecture of the new building was intended to contrast the white ACM panels on 150 Terrace Street to the south. The building was detailed with light grey and dark grey precast architectural panels finished with a “striated rib” form-liner from Architectural Polymers. The random striation width and placement provided an interesting shadowy texture while planters have been integrated at the northeast and southwest creating depth and further playing with shadow. The core and shell building was completed in 2019.
