Construction has started on Creekside Crossing, a $20 million apartment complex in Walker.

The complex, which is located near the intersection of Walker North Road and Florida Boulevard, will have 168 one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Rents will be comparable to market rates in Denham Springs, said developer John Buzzell of Bearing Point Properties. Buzzell and Deane Bryson, both commercial real estate agents with NAI/Latter & Blum in Baton Rouge, are principals in Bearing Point.

The gated complex will feature amenities such as an oversized fitness facility, a clubhouse, resort-style swimming pool and an outdoor kitchen.

The first units in Creekside Crossing should be available for rent in late spring-early summer.
