Development Update
New Downtown Parking
Lasalle Garage

Today the Division of Administration announced that the State will begin offering nearly 300 parking spots for public use in the LaSalle Parking Garage, 521 Third St., located in the Arts and Entertainment District of Downtown. This makes two public garages that are open 24/7 along the Third St. corridor, with the other being the Third Street Garage located at the corner of Third & Convention Streets. The locations of these two garages are ideal for visitors and residents attending the many restaurants, offices, and events! The announcement is also a recommendation in the Downtown Parking Study completed earlier this year.

Downtown Development District Executive Director Davis Rhorer said, "The announcement of public parking availability in the LaSalle Parking Garage is great news for Downtown Baton Rouge. This is a very smart use of a public garage in this urban setting, serving multiple purposes including parking for State workers, commercial leases, and now providing parking to the general public. Many thanks to the Governor and the Division of Administration for setting this policy in place."

The garage will be cash only and will utilize an automated payment system. The garage will also be installing an ATM for the public. The general public will ONLY be allowed to use the Main Street side to enter the garage. See the links below for more information and hourly rates.
