Baton Rouge, LA – The Domain Companies has announced that The High Grove development in Baton Rouge has reached 100% residential occupancy. The property, with its 192 apartments and 25,000sf of retail space, is Domain’s first in Baton Rouge; plans for an adjacent second community in The Grove, a 118-acre Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND), are well underway.
Since its delivery in October 2013, The High Grove has established its position as the premier multifamily residential community in the city, offering a superior location, product, and amenities/services package unmatched by other local developments. The property was awarded LEED Silver Certification in March 2014, making it the first luxury apartment community in Baton Rouge to achieve such status.
The High Grove is the first development within The Grove, located across from the Mall of Louisiana just off of I-10, in the heart of Baton Rouge’s premier commercial corridor, providing for the ideal TND location. The Grove will include a mix of residential, retail, and commercial uses, with over 44-acres of the 118-acre site dedicated to parks, pathways, and creek-side landscaping.
Building upon The High Grove’s success within The Grove, Domain will begin construction of The Addison building in November 2014. Construction is expected to be completed in Fall 2015, and the building will feature 139 apartments and 7,500sf of retail space.
“The High Grove has raised the bar for luxury apartment living in Baton Rouge,” said Matt Schwartz, Co-Founder of The Domain Companies. “We’ll further that success with The Addison, which will once again set a new standard with a fresh and exciting design and even more unique services and amenities.”
The Addison is designed in the Mediterranean Revival style, inspired by resort and residential properties commonly found throughout the Gulf Coast. The property takes its name from Addison Mizner, the architect responsible for popularizing the style in the 1920s and one of the most famous and accomplished designers of his time. The Addison will consist of a main four-story structure with 109 apartments and 30 townhomes. The unit layouts and finishes are designed to position The Addison at the top of the Baton Rouge market, with floor plans based on the most popular layouts at The High Grove. Like The High Grove, The Addison will seek to maximize sustainable and green design features wherever possible.
The Addison’s retail tenants will be of the same high caliber as The High Grove’s, which currently houses The Woodhouse Day Spa and Open Barre fitness center. The Addison’s unique cafes, full-service restaurants, and high-end boutiques will create an upscale environment that provides both a shopping destination and convenience retail for the development’s residents.
