  1. Been reading a lot of articles pertaining to 'food deserts'. One particular area that surprises me as being a food desert area or low income area is the champion forest/1960 area. IMO a trader joes would thrive on 1960/CCP (Cypress Creek Parkway). Thoughts?

Work has started on a mixed-use development at 1480 Nicholson Drive at the site of the old Prince Murat Hotel, more than 12 years after plans were first announced for the project... ...River House will have 224 luxury apartments spread over a pair of four-story buildings, a 34,000-square-foot, three-story office building, 15,000 square feet of retail and a 4,600-square-foot community clubhouse.

Radio Bar owners planning Mid City beer garden that'll serve food, show sporting events The owners of the Radio Bar, a popular Mid City neighborhood cocktail lounge, have submitted plans for a beer garden that would be built at the intersection of Government Street and Steele Boulevard.

  12. Drago’s Seafood Restaurant, the New Orleans eatery best known for its charbroiled oysters, is looking at opening locations in Baton Rouge and Lafayette. A location for the Lafayette restaurant should be announced “in the next couple of days,” said Ron St. Pierre, a spokesman for Drago’s. That restaurant should open later this year. Drago’s is also interested in opening a Baton Rouge restaurant, possibly as part of a mixed-use development that would be built off Highland Road in front of the Country Club of Louisiana. “We are interested in that piece of property, but we are strictly in the negotiation phase,” St. Pierre said. While Baton Rouge is a priority market, a Drago’s wouldn’t open in the city before 2016. Plans are in the works to build a 45,000- to 55,000-square-foot mixed-use development in front of the Country Club, on the side of State Bank and Trust.
