Wow, I really hope they don't do that. Traffic will be a clusterfrick of a clusterfrick if they go through with this.

Its really a shame LSU is so far away from downtown.


Da frick? It's 1.2 miles...
you are better than this.....go to UGA or Bama and you can walk out of the stadium and be at the downtown bar scene in 5 mins.

Private and Residential Life.

That entire corner of Nicholson from Skip Bertman to North Stadium and north another 300 feet is going to be retail and office.

Three U-shaped, 4 story buildings look the same as 10+ two story apartment units in a row?


Never realized they were comprised of 10 2 story apartments now. I usually look the other way.

Well good if they redo it I am very happy.

Sounds very nice. That area is overdue for some cleaning up.

Everything bounded by the railroad tracks, nicholson, chimes, and Skip Bertman is being leveled

And additional improvements to the median and fields in front of the Swim/Dive facility

That is excellent. That area has been an eyesore since I was born.

I like how LSU is considered better across the board, but LaTech started housing like this near 8 years ago.

Will LSU baseball parking still be a clusterfrick nightmare for which the designers of the new stadium should all be tortured and executed?

Did the PMAC's roof implode in that pic?


That was the first thing I noticed....and I am concerned that the roof might cost a lot more to fix than the new buildings...

The idea is that kids are wanting to live as close to campus as possible now and theyre trying to cater to the out of state kid. If you put a grocery and other entertainment options in this development. Along with a light rail or street car connecting to downtown, you wouldnt have to drive hardly at all. Im all for it.

I like it. Thanks for posting this.

LSU built some decent student housing about 12 years ago, but hasn't done much other than traditional dorms since then. The school is behind in this area, although I'm not sure how excited students will be about living near a rail road track.

Student housing is a good revenue base, and a street car line would be great for LSU.

A left turn lane further down Nicholson and Lee would be very nice.

No...what I'm saying is the entire system switched over then.

Like it started then. WCA and ECA haven't been done again, they were one time things.


And the Campus Apts. at Tech have some pretty cool vistas, like over looking the baseball field.

Guy from laffayette was going to build a similar-type development. He lost his arse in 2008 so it's been on hold.

As an aside, had we approved Kip's Bond Issue, the sewer plant behind that would have been eliminated.

Ok, good. It's an investment then.

Who's going to pay for it to be built?
