First nighttime photo of the Bienville Building, still under construction (sorry about quality).
They were testing the lights. The illuminated "crown" will be a nice addition to the skyline.

South-Central Baton Rouge includes older, much-sought after, finer residential areas near City Park such as Steele Place, Hundred Oaks, the Garden Distrct, Southdowns and Lakeshore.

Office buildings are located along the fringes of the area, near I-10 interchanges, including:

Acadian Centre



Acadia Trace

The Mid-City section of Baton Rouge is undergoing a renaissance of sorts.
Because of rapid growth in the area, for safety reasons, the old "Downtown Airport" was closed in the late seventies and converted into Independence Park. Its large area provided for much used park lands including an Public Gardens, Playhouse/Theatre, soccer fields, baseball/softball fields, jogging trails and picnic areas.
Parts of the site were developed as a one-stop Public Safety complex, with new buildings utilized by state agencies. On a side note, FEMA is located here.

The original airport:

Other developments of note in the Central area include:

Wooddale Tower


Mid-City is home to the Baton Rouge Community College, BR General Hospital's Main Campus and dozens of supporting companies.

General Health Systems Operations Building


Dean Tower


Bon Carré Business Center is a nearly one million square-foot technology, research and business hub which is anchored by a high-tech data storage facility and is the current home for dozens of high-tech businesses.

Renovations planned for Hotel King

Group to turn seven-story building into boutique hotel

By CHAD CALDER
Advocate business writer
Published: Apr 12, 2006

The investment group that bought the Hotel King downtown plans to work with a newly formed, locally based consulting firm to turn the seven-story building into a boutique hotel.

The group, which includes Buddy Leach and Cyntreniks Group, plans have the building at 200 Lafayette St. open next year, offering between 90 and 100 rooms, said Cyntreniks President John Schneider.

Schneider and Cyntreniks chairman Brace Godfrey offered a few details on their plans at the monthly meeting of the Downtown Development District on Tuesday. Godfrey and Schneider said they will be working with Nu Vieux, a hotel and real estate consulting firm formed by Gayle Carnahan, formerly with the Belle of Baton Rouge, and Francis Grayson, former general manager of the downtown Sheraton. Grayson and Carnahan formed the company a few months ago, and the Hotel King will be their first project.

The Hotel King was opened in the late 1920s. The seven-story building, which has 46,000 square feet of space, operated as an office building from 1973 until it closed in 2004.

Schneider said it’s not yet clear whether the Hotel King will be affiliated with a national chain or be run independently. He said it would feature a bar and a glass-enclosed rooftop terrace, but probably not a restaurant. That in part is because the company is considering bringing a high-end, nationally known restaurant to the nearby Lyceum Dean, which Cyntreniks Group also recently purchased from developer Bob Dean.

Schneider said that with 700 rooms to be open on the south end of downtown, Cyntreniks is looking at a restaurant. The other option for Lyceum Dean could be making it home to a bank or other financial institution.

Schneider said plans have also solidified for Dean Plaza at 327 North Blvd., the third building Cyntreniks bought from Dean last month, though it will continue as an office building because of its proximity to the courthouse and governmental building.

Cyntreniks bought the Kress/Welsh & Levy building from Dean in November, and plans on a mixed-use development that would include residential and office space, as well as a memorial to that building’s role in the civil rights movement.

Hotel, Residential tower proposed for Southgate

Developer Robert Day wants to build a hotel at Southgate Towers, the Nicholson Drive residential and retail complex near LSU. Representatives of Day's company, R.W. Day, could not be reached. The firm proposes a six-story, 117-unit hotel and retail area, it says in a city-parish filing that revises the development's concept plan. Day wants to build the hotel across from the LSU Golf Course. He had originally planned two-story retail buildings for the spot. What's more, Day also is increasing one residential tower from 15 to 18 stories. Southgate now includes apartments and retail, including Walk-Ons restaurant, Co-Op Bookstore, CC's Coffeehouse and hello sushi! The revised concept plan has 158,200 square feet of commercial space and 85,642 square feet for the hotel.

Capitol Park

Recent photos of the Iberville and the Bienville Buildings nearing completion. Scheduled opening for both is late summer. The angle makes them look razor thin, but they both angle outward from the towered entrances.

Construction of the James Audubon Bridge has begun just north of BR. This should really help to jump start additional development north of Baton Rouge towards St. Francisville and into New Roads.

The project, slated for completion in summer 2010, includes approximately 12 miles of roadway, and a 2.44-mile-long cable-stayed bridge across the river. The roadway will connect to The Scenic Highway, U.S. 61 in West Feliciana Parish, south of LA 966 and then connect to Louisiana Highway La1 in Pointe Coupee Parish, east of Hospital Road.

Old South Baton Rouge

This ambitious plan to conserve the old section of town between the CBD and LSU has received great support. Its' location warrants the large number and wide range of projects that have been announced, including retail, residential, recreational and educational.

Some the projects are now underway:

A few years back fire heavily damaged the historic McKinley High School, now renovated, it serves as the school's Alumni Center



the handsome new EBR Parish Carver Branch Library





Red Stick Lofts on Nicholson

Riverfront Park features terrace effect

Consultants on Thursday unveiled the latest incarnation of the proposed downtown riverfront park, one built out onto the Mississippi River from the USS Kidd to North Street and featuring sculptured pedestrian walkways, a playground, a floating wetlands exhibit and an amphitheater.

the link in the advocate...

A computer rendering shows a view of the Mississippi River and the Louisiana Art and Science Museum in downtown Baton Rouge, surrounded by a proposed park that would extend out along the river. The purple line represents the existing pedestrian bridge over River Road; it would be altered and extended under the plan. The public will have two more months to give input before a plan is submitted to city-parish officials.
