Project Spotlight: Rouzan Village
Baton Rouge, Louisiana – A new south Louisiana mixed-use development will introduce Alamo Drafthouse Cinema to the state, as architectural firm KTGY Group and developer JTS announce the development of Rouzan Village, the retail center of Baton Rouge master-planned residential community Rouzan.
Phase one, designed by KTGY, is located near the intersection of Perkins Road and Glasgow Avenue and will feature approximately 80,000 sq. ft. of retail anchored by Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, and up to 220 residential rental units including live/work studios.
According to KTGY's Simon "Sy" Perkowitz, a principal in the firm's retail/commercial division, the architectural design of the buildings will be inspired by the Gulf Coast style typically found in nearby New Orleans. Each of the three buildings will have ground-level retail with three stories of residential rental units above. The live/work studios will be designed to have potential retail/commercial space on the lower portion with living above. Two parking structures and street parking will provide parking for approximately 900 cars to accommodate shoppers, movie patrons and apartment residents. New infrastructure is planned as a part of the development and will include public improvements such as a park and public art locations.
"Rouzan Village is designed as a state-of-the-art, 21st century village," said Perkowitz. "It offers a great location, unique character and a walkable mix of uses, meticulous design and sustainable construction.”
Austin, Texas-based Alamo Drafthouse Cinema's local partner Cojeaux Cinemas will be opening the 33,000-sq.-ft. theater, the first one in Louisiana. Anthony Coco, president and CEO of Cojeaux Cinemas, said that Baton Rouge's Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will have seven screens and 850 seats; food, beer, wine and liquor will be available before, during or after the films, and the location includes a bar off the lobby which serves food and beverages to patrons and non-moviegoers alike. The theater is expected to begin construction in 2015 and open in mid-2016. Village Center's residential component is expected to break ground in mid-2015 and take approximately 14-18 months to complete.
