Ground has broken. Not sure who the tenants will be, but word has it that many will be local retailers.

It's right across Kaliste Saloom from River Ranch.

Lafayette is getting some major improvements. What exactly is this?

This is located where the old oak trees are in that huge empty lot on the opposite side of River Ranch. Right now there is a large banner going across the property.

I gotta get out of this hell hole called lake charles, It seems they only build houses in Lake Charles, YET the population steadily declines.

The root website has all the info, but it's essentially an upscale retail/hotel development. The three five-story buildings comprise Lafayette's first five-star hotel called the Marquis de Lafayette.

That museum-looking structure with the Greek Corinthian columns is probably the planned convention center.

Frankly, I am neutral as to who stakes claim on the store front. But numerous restaurants will be here. I'm not so neutral on THAT.

Dining is a big issue with me...

Also, early word suggested that the hotel restaurant will be a well-established one from New Orleans (no, not Copeland's), but nothing was finalized at the time.

I misspoke, as they are not Corinthian, but Ionic.

Anywho...

I love how it is designed. It looks like a new university more than anything though.

I also love that they retained all those oaks and incorporated them into the plan. This may turn out to be Lafayette's best new addition in quite a while.

Still hope we get a Fogo de Chou churrascaria type of eatery. I would even consider quitting my pilot job to work for them as a waiter if it meant free meals. THAT's how much I love to eat! Flying planes has been a great way to pay the bills, but...... there's so much more to life.....
