EA breaks ground on 30M Digital Media Center at LSU

Electronic Arts Inc. (EA) broke ground on the 94,000-square-foot Louisiana Digital Media Center that eventually will be home to 600 video game development workers and LSU’s Center for Computation & Technology. EA, the video game company that produces titles like The Sims™, Madden NFL, says that this new building will house its North American Test Center.

The $29.3 million project will result in a three-story structure on LSU’s main campus. LSU’s Center for Computation & Technology had long sought a contemporary, permanent home for its programs that drive academic and business research with high-performance computing. The state also sought a permanent home for the EA North American Test Center, which has been located on LSU’s South Campus since 2008 with nearly 400 workers, half of which are full-time employees. Both of these goals will be realized at the Louisiana Digital Media Center when it opens in 2012 on LSU’s main campus.

438 Main Street / CBD



Construction has started on 438 Main Street, a $4.7 million apartment building and is projected to be finished in about 10 months.

The property at 438 Main St. was purchased earlier this week from the Baton Rouge Area Foundation’s Commercial Properties Development Corp. after it tore down the former Brown building on the site.

Lafayette House / CBD



The team behind the renovation of the Tessier building on Lafayette Street downtown is planning a four-story, 16-unit condominium development on the lot behind the building.

Developers Dyke Nelson and David Weinstein told the Downtown Development District on Tuesday that the roughly $2 million Lafayette House will feature four single-bedroom units per floor at just over 600 square feet per unit.

The property will feature a courtyard surrounding the building and balconies that take advantage of the view.

Nelson noted that the design will use transparent materials to allow for more light and prevent visual obstruction.

The units, which will be $185,000 on the first two floors and $195,000 on the third, will have prearranged financing.

Construction is projected to begin this summer with the first residents moving in by the fall of 2013.

River District / BR CBD South















Plans for the River District, a mixed-use project of residential units, office buildings and retail space that will be developed along Nicholson Drive between LSU and downtown were presented yesterday.

The project, as proposed, will be developed on 34.8 acres on both sides of Nicholson. Plans have been in the works for six years but were stalled by the national recession. Plans for the development include: 1,800 residential units—both condos and apartments—a 220-room hotel, 100,000 square feet of office space and 100,000 square feet of commercial space, including a 40,000-square-foot neighborhood grocery store or drugstore.

note* the development is adjacent to and immediately south of the recently announced Water Institute of the Gulf (Water Campus)
