Located in downtown Baton Rouge, this was the first riverfront office and residential development in over half a century. After a deal struck in late March 2013, IBM announced their selection of Baton Rouge as the site for its’ next software development center. The Baton Rouge Area Foundation aided in IBM’s selection of the hometown venue, including the key incentive of office space. The 428,000 SF complex, developed by Commercial Properties Realty Trust, the firm that develops and manages real estate for the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, includes a multitude of uses.

Rising on the empty site where The Advocate newspaper headquarters once stood, a nine-story office tower was built for 800 employees IBM employees. Next to the IBM Office Building, stands 525 Lafayette, a 7-story residential tower that includes 85 apartments.

Both towers sit atop a four-story parking garage. A 24,000 SF riverfront rooftop terrace connects the two buildings. Adjacent to the parking garage, 9 luxury multi-level townhomes were constructed, each with a private garage.
