The city-parish Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday recommended approval of a 115-acre mixed development off Interstate 10 just west of the Mall of Louisiana.
“We think it’s going to be one of the premier developments,” architect Rex Cabaniss told the East Baton Rouge Parish Planning Commission.
As proposed by developer Richard Carmouche, the Grove development would include 225,000 square feet of retail space, 284,000 square feet of office space and 266,000 square feet of general commercial development. Plans call also call for the development of 850 dwelling units above the commercial and retail space.
The commission voted 8-0 to recommend approval of the Grove concept plan Monday. The proposed rezoning is slated to go before the Metro Council at 4 p.m. Aug. 15 in the council chambers on the third floor of the Governmental Building, 222 St. Louis St.
