Commercial Properties Realty Trust and Baton Rouge Area Foundation
Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Client: Commercial Properties Realty Trust
Project Size: 22,156 SF

Housed within the recently completed Baton Rouge Mixed Use Facility in Downtown Baton Rouge, Commercial Properties Realty Trust and the Baton Rouge Area Foundation offices reside at the top floor of the IBM Tower, providing amazing views of the Louisiana State Capitol and mighty Mississippi River. As a result of an innovative partnership, both entities played a crucial role in bringing the $59 million tech and residential development to the city, completed in early 2015. The collaboration triggered the expansion of computer science programs at nearby LSU in addition to riverfront development in downtown Baton Rouge.

The real estate and development giant and Foundation offices are both located on the 9th floor and span over 22,000 square feet. Newly constructed Class-A office space features state-of-the-art architectural elements such as sleek quartz tops, rare cypress fire-etched planks, exposed ceiling cloud concepts and a vast array of glass and wood finishes that provide a modern design.

Completed on schedule with zero lost-time incidents, Commercial Properties Realty Trust and the Baton Rouge Area foundation offices also enjoy the building’s plaza level which features vegetated planters and full-size trees while overlooking the Mississippi River.
