438 Main Street Groundbreaking Ceremony Held
FutureBR Implementation

The Downtown residential market got a boost today as the 22 unit mixed income apartment development at 438 Main Street broke ground. Developments like 438 Main Street are crucial to the Downtown residential market as we establish Downtown as a place to live, play, and work. With more residential units already in the development pipeline, it is clear that Downtown living is more than just a trend. It is a way of life that Baton Rougeans are ready and willing to embrace. The developers behind the $4.7 million apartment building on Main Street downtown, Norman Chenevert and Helena and Kevin Cunningham, have purchased the property, begun construction and expect to be finished in about 10 months. The project is being financed by Liberty Bank, the contractor is Milton J. Womack Inc and the architect is Chenevert Architects.

"As Downtown continues to grow it is imperative that we continue to look forward and provide housing to support our downtown work force. Downtown housing is an important initiative of both Plan Baton Rouge II and FUTUREBR that the Downtown Development DIstrict is working vigoursously to implement. We envision a downtown that has all the necessary components to support all functions of living - a downtown where one can wake up in the morning and walk two blocks to work, eat lunch within a short walk from his or her office, get a prescription filled while on lunch break, stop by the market on his or her walk home, and perhaps go shopping, enjoy cultural and civic activity or dine out in one of our many downtown restaurants later that evening." - Davis Rhorer, Executive Director, DDD
