56-unit condo complex going up on N. Harrell's Ferry

Advocate business staff

A new 56-unit condominium complex is being planned for the intersection of North Harrell's Ferry and West Boardwalk.
Construction on Baywood Quarters is set to start early next year, with the first three "clusters" of units opening by June or July, said Barry DeLozier, a senior vice president with Signature Homes. Signature, based in Birmingham, Ala., has built several condo developments across Baton Rouge, including Carriage Place on Coursey Boulevard and The Plantation on Perkins Road.

Baywood Quarters will have a village feel, with multiple units attached together in clusters. Each unit will feature a private courtyard and a two-car garage. Units will range in size from 1,500 to 2,000 square feet and will sell from the "mid-$180,000s to the low $200,000s."

DeLozier said the village feel will differentiate Baywood Quarters from the other condominium developments. "These condos will have brick and stucco with copper accents," he said. "They're very eclectic."

Although Signature had been planning Baywood Quarters for a while, the demand for housing brought on by Hurricane Katrina evacuees caused the company to speed up construction. "We want to push construction along, because we know that people will want these units," DeLozier said.

Athough I have not seen a rendering, here is a link to another smaller Signature project in Baton Rouge.
