525 Lafayette

Location:Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Client: Commercial Properties Reality Trust
Project description: Antunovich Associates collaborated with Commercial Properties Realty Trust and the State of Louisiana Department of Economic Development on 525 Lafayette Street, a mixed-use redevelopment located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This exciting 550,000 square foot project sits on the former Advocate Newspaper site, which occupies an entire city block in downtown Baton Rouge.

The catalyst for the development is a six-story building that houses offices for the IBM Corporation. This structure is complemented by an 87 unit luxury residential tower, approximately 3,000 square feet of retail, and a collection of high-end townhomes that sit along Main Street. These program elements activate the street front and provide an architectural enclosure around a four story, 400 space parking structure. The garage is crowned by a 20,000 square foot roof garden that features a generous mix of vegetation and hardscape. The architectural expression of the building draws heavily from the art deco vernacular of Baton Rouge while still expressing a modern presence.
