Baton Rouge, La. — Rouzan Village is situated just east of downtown Baton Rouge and within minutes of the LSU campus.
KTGY Group Inc., an architecture and planning firm, and JTS, a Baton Rouge-based developer, will develop Rouzan Village, the commercial and retail center of Rouzan, a 120-acre master plan residential community in the historic Southdowns neighborhood of Baton Rouge. The first phase of the new mixed-use community, designed by KTGY, will feature approximately 80,000 square feet of retail anchored by Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, and up to 220 residential rental units including live/work studios. Austin, Texas-based Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s local partner Cojeaux Cinemas will be opening the 33,000-square-foot theater, the first one in Louisiana. Baton Rouge’s Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will have seven screens and approximately 850 large seats. The theater is expected to begin construction next year 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. Rouzan Village is situated just east of downtown Baton Rouge and within minutes of the LSU campus and the city’s medical corridor.
