IBM to Build Development Center in Downtown Baton Rouge

Recommended Posts

IBM announced Wednesday it will establish a first-of-its-kind software development center at the former site of The Advocate, a move that will create 800 jobs and be a “transformational” project for downtown Baton Rouge.

The company’s Domestic Delivery Center will be the centerpiece of a $55 million riverfront office-residential complex on Lafayette Street, bordered by North and Main streets and River Road. An 11-story residential tower, with 95 apartments and nine luxury townhomes, also will be part of the development.

The eight-story IBM building is set for completion by spring 2015, while the residential section should open a few months later.
