Construction begins on Hampton Inn | Home | The Advocate — Baton Rouge, LA

Construction beginning on Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown, adding much needed hotel rooms to the area. Richard Preis is optomistic this will help usher in some long-delayed projects such as his planned condo-tower.

You'll have to ask him I'm afraid. He didn't give the particular reason behind his thinking that. I hope he's right though--its high time BR gets another major addition to the skyline.

I thought it was dead and gone. At least this may be some hope.

Today whilst driving down Nicholson I noticed that some construction going on at the Coterie Row site at Nicholson and Oklahoma. Last year they had done some utility and concrete work and the site had been dormant since. But now it appears the framing is up for the first of what will be eleven cottages.

Good to see one of the stalled Nicholson infill projects regaining traction. Maybe others will follow suit in the near future.

Cool, i surely hope they are starting development. I'm really looking forward to River District and River House getting built....I really wish there were more announcements on those developments!

I guess I'm one of those strange people that doesn't view all steel , brick and mortar as " progress " . I rather enjoyed the open " green area ". Can't fight capitalism I guess .

Green area is nice, but it hasn't done anything to breath new life into the area. It reminds me alot of the buffer zone on Senic Highway...its acres and acres of green area, and its more pleasant to look at than the dilapidated old houses that used to be there, but it hasn't really done anything for anyone, except give murderers a convenient place to ditch evidence and God knows what else.

If these developers stick to their word, projects such as River District should have a reasonable amount of greenspace incorporated into the designs. Supposedly they are keeping most of those oak trees in the area...supposedly being the key word.

One thing I am particularly looking forward to is the removal of that sewage treatment plant on River Road.
