Downtown Baton Rouge has experienced a surge of development activity over the past few years, attracting several out of town civic organizations and leaders to Baton Rouge to learn more about the strategies that influenced our success.
Most recently, the DDD welcomed some 25 visitors from Lafayette, Louisiana to share with them the many recent projects implemented in Downtown Baton Rouge, and highlight the past efforts critical to their success. The Lafayette group was comprised of city officials and council members, Downtown Development Authority (DDA) board members and staff, and Lafayette community and chamber representatives.
Downtown Baton Rouge developers, business owners, DDD Director Davis Rhorer, and the Honorable Mayor-President Melvin 'Kip' Holden spoke to the Lafayette leaders about several fundamental strategies and master plan recommendations that led to the current dynamic surrounding downtown development.
A walking tour was also arranged for the group, which showcased several of our most recent developments along Third Street and within the Arts & Entertainment District.
We are thrilled and humbled to have hosted the Lafayette DDA, and proud to showcase our assets in Downtown Baton Rouge! The successes showcased in Downtown Baton Rouge are thanks to those that live, work, play, and invest here...Thank you!
