Dantin Bruce Development has applied for a building permit for 333 Lofts, a two-story condo development just outside the south gate of LSU.

The $2.8 million, 28-unit development will be 37,376 square feet at 333 East Boyd Ave., according to the permit application.

Brian Dantin said 333 Lofts should open next summer, just in time for the start of the 2012 fall semester. He said it will be gated and include a pool and fire pits for outdoor entertaining.

He said the development will have a style similar to New Orleans’ warehouse district lofts.

Dantin Bruce Development is also in the process of building Perkins Lane, a four-acre townhouse development on Perkins Road between Lee Drive and Stanford Avenue.

That development, which includes 21 townhomes and three live/work spaces, should start to see vertical development in the next few weeks, with the first units completed in about six months.
