There is no doubt that since 2005, Downtown Baton Rouge has seen a surge of growth and development. Downtown has flourished with the development of new public greenspaces, residential opportunities, office buildings, and a full service grocery store. As evident in a recent special 225 Magazine issue, the progress is being noticed by others.
In the Commemorative Tenth Anniversary Edition of the 225 Magazine, Downtown Baton Rouge was recognized as helping change the landscape of the Capitol City throughout the last 10 years. Out of the 10 locations that were highlighted in the magazine, Downtown was fortunate enough to have 5 of the locations: Shaw Center for the Arts, II City Plaza, North Boulevard Town Square, Matherne's Market, and the IBM development.
See the links below for the entire 225 Magazine article, and the Downtown Development Yearbook which offers more information on upcoming projects.
Happy Thanksgiving from the DDD, as we are thankful for your continued community support of downtown development efforts.
