The LITE center has released a 3-D interactive concept video of a project that would provide a mix of commercial and residential space over an entire, but triangular city block between Lee Avenue, Jefferson and East Main Streets. It would consist of street level boutiques, a multi-screen theater and other businesses. But the rest of the street level space would be dedicated to indoor parking in the interior.

Second level would be where the main focus begins.

Just wonder if this concept is anything more that that of a concept car...

it may not be. Lafayette is really beginning to build a lot lately. I see new projects all over town and some I wasnt even aware of. Plans to revitalize downtown are in the works though on what scale I have no idea.

While not downtown, probably the largest is the Parc Lafayette development on Kaliste Saloom. Their website still shows "under construction". Just wonder if some of these projects aren't in a holding pattern due to the current economic uncertainty.

Rant later.

they might be, but I do see a lot of smaller projects being built all over the place. A grand scale one might take a while though.

No, but it is the block where the now-replaced (and targeted for demolition) federal courthouse sits. Acadiana Open Channel also uses part of that block, but they will be re-locating to the new Rosa Parks multimodal transportation center in another part of downtown. I think there might also be a bank branch on that block, but not sure. The old city hall is also there and, according to the concept video, will be retained.

I have not been downtown at night in probably ten years. I hear the nightlife has become a huge issue for residents there.

Absolutely no desire to check it out for myself...

You aren't missing anything. Lafayette isn't what it used to be. The night people are just hanging out looking at each other waiting for something to happen. Yuppies have taken over this town. Pas bon.
