Construction should start “in the next week or so” on Park Rowe Village, a $35.2 million apartment complex in the Perkins Rowe mixed-use development.
David Alexander, a partner in Vintage Realty, the Shreveport company that is developing Park Rowe Village, said the first apartments in the 336-unit development should be available for lease in spring 2017.
“We’re ready to get started ASAP,” Alexander said. Vintage Realty acquired a 20-acre tract of land east of the NeuroMedical Center and south of Dawson Creek for the apartment complex in November 2013.
Vintage bought the land for $6.5 million from First Bank and Trust of New Orleans.
Rental rates in Park Rowe Village will be determined as the units get closer to going to market. Alexander said the complex will be made up of “class A, upscale apartments” and will feature a range of amenities.
Units in the complex will feature granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and washers and dryers, Alexander said.
The complex also will have a 5,000- to 6,000-square-foot clubhouse; a fitness center; a cybercafe; meeting rooms and offices; and a large, resort-style pool and cabana, with an outdoor cooking area.
The units will be spread across several three-story buildings.
Vintage developed and manages a number of apartment and retail spaces in Louisiana and Arkansas, including The Village at Fountain Lake in Gonzales and the Acadian Village Shopping Center in Baton Rouge.
