On The Greaux – The building boom continues in Lafayette

Warehouse Dist. Lofts Move Ahead

Construction should start soon on the Warehouse District Lofts, a long-proposed project on South College Dr. near W. Bayou Pkwy.  Records show the building permit for the complex was issued Jan. 15th for $1,000,000.  Developer Dimitri Menutis orginally planned for the entire site to house a few buildings of high-end residential lofts.  The plan has changed – with office condos being built on the Oil Center side of the property, and the less expensive warehouse lofts on the Johnston Street side. 

One of the commercial buildings looks like it’s almost complete.  The project’s website says three of the residential units have been sold.  The two bedroom / two bath units are sellling in the $260,000 range.  They look very similar to the Red Stick Lofts complex in Baton Rouge that LSU fans may recognize from their Nicholson Drive location between campus and downtown.

Those Baton Rouge condos are notably ugly for their metal siding. I’ve seen them from car and bicycle. The faster you go, the less the blightful image it makes. These will make a terrible architectural addition to the streetscape of South College Road.
