State agrees to lease Third Street space for police substation, art gallery!

The State Office of Facilities Corporation has agreed to lease 2,000 square feet of vacant space in the Third Street Parking Garage to the city-parish for a new City Police substation and a proposed art gallery. Under the agreement approved today, the City-Parish will spend $300,000 to cover the costs of finishing off the police substation and the art gallery in exchange for a 10-year, no-cost lease for the space. The city-parish will use 705 square feet for the substation, which will accommodate downtown bicycle patrols, evening uniformed officers, community resource officers and state DPS officers. The remaining 1,295 square feet will be used for an art gallery proposed by the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge to display original art from Baton Rouge and the region, Mayor Kip Holden says.
