Baton Rouge-East: LIGO Observatories link with others to detect gamma rays

LSU partners with Washington State, Cal Tech and MIT labs in solving galactic riddle

Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory facilities north of east-suburban Livingston along with its' sister facilities in Hanford, Washington state, searching the heavens for never-before-detected gravitational waves have helped astrophysicists narrow down the cause of a massively bright explosion in deep space observed last winter.

The facilities span an area five miles wide in the piney woods of suburban Baton Rouge..........

Riverfront Mixed Use development

Deal closes on riverfront project

By ADVOCATE BUSINESS STAFF

Published: Jan 10, 2008

Sales records show developer Pete Clements closed Tuesday on the $13.5 million purchase of a 36-acre tract of riverfront land north of Hollywood Casino.

The site was owned by Luhr Brothers Inc. of Columbia, Ill., a company that used the site to store rock, gravel and other construction materials.

Clements, who has been negotiating for the land since early last year, has said he plans to build a mixed-use development there, including 800 to 1,200 residential units, as well as 300,000 to 600,000 square feet of commercial space.

He could not be reached immediately Thursday. But in March, Clements told the Downtown Development District that the residential units would likely target midrange-income tenants.

Part of the negotiations included Clements’ offer to sell four acres to Hollywood Casino.

Both parties had been working on a plan to build an underpass under the downtown rail line that would guarantee uninterrupted access to the casino site. Access becomes blocked whenever trains pass through downtown.

Americana

Americana, the sprawling, 415-acre traditional neighborhood development proposed for Zachary, is set to go before the city-parish Planning Commission on Jan. 22, according to notices filed.

Shearwater Communities bought the tract at La. 64 and Mount Pleasant-Zachary Road in September for $15.5 million.

Pending approval, Americana would offer more than 1,400 residential units, more than 400,000 square feet of commercial retail space and 70,000 square feet of retail and office space.

Shearwater officials, who were not immediately available Friday, have said construction could take at least 15 years to complete and could top $1 billion in total investment.

Rouzon, website....http://www.rouzan.net/index.html
is being developed by JTS interests, builders of the recently opened, but already extremely popular Perkins Rowe in Baton Rouge; the Lakes at Cinco Ranch and Watermarke in Houston, Texas; and Citiplace in Baton Rouge.

.......the story in the Advocate incorrectly refers to it as a dairy farm. It is located on (the old) Plank Rd at Choctaw. This large historical building has been vacant since who knows when and when complete will be perfect for this use. It will also put some much needed energy into the old NBR community. The film company is making a huge presence in BR, joining with three other film studios wanting to be part of "Hollywood South".

Skinny Giraffe Films, the Baton Rouge film-production company, said Wednesday it could have a deal in place within the next month to buy an old dairy farm in north Baton Rouge that would be converted to a $10 million film studio.

Kirk Kepper of Skinny Giraffe said the 150,000-square-foot creamery near Choctaw Drive and Interstate 110 is owned by the Claitor family and dates back to the 1920s.

Kepper said his company plans to refurbish the main building and transform it to a film production facility.

“We’ll probably be finalized within the next month,” he said. “There’s a few things to iron out, but we are 100 percent going forward with this."

Some of their releases are The Way of War, which starred Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding Jr, Trance a horror movie that's headed to the Berlin International Film Festival in February (2008) and The American Standards (2007) starring James Brolin.

Local rapper Lil' Boosie also shot a music video in the dairy.

Star Hill

A Covington developer is planning a mixed-use development on 200 acres south of St. Francisville.

Kenrich Properties bought the tract on U.S. 61 across from The Vintage Store at Star Hill and plans to build a development with single-family lots, town homes and office and retail tenants, said Ambrose Sims, parish manager for West Feliciana Parish. The tract is on the east side of the highway, about 2.5 miles south of St. Francisville.

According to plans filed with the parish, the development would require rezoning and would include 240,000 square feet of commercial space, 160 multifamily units, 135 townhome lots and 366 lots for single-family homes. Sims said 38 percent of the development would be reserved for green space.

cranes in place above Repentance Fountain reveal the new Judicial Building's location.



Repentance Fountain is nestled between the RiverCenter arena and the Old State Capitol. A nearby plaque explains:
During the Spanish domination of Baton Rouge, Repentance Street ran through this area. It was so named because convicted criminals walked along it on their way to receive sentencing at the Commandant's house where the Old State Capitol now stands.

New Apple Store

The Apple store just opened in the Mall of Louisiana's Boulevard. It is a gem in a sea of mediocre storefronts.

LED Building



The new office building/parking garage would be between Fifth and Sixth streets, north of Lakeland Drive, south of Arsenal Park and just southeast of the Capitol, and would most likely house Louisiana Economic Development. If funding can be secured from the legislature's Capital Outlay fund, requests for bids could go out this calendar year after the start of the next fiscal year in July.
