A final development plan for phase five of the Rouzan traditional neighborhood development has been submitted to the city-parish Planning Commission, along with revised plans for the neighborhood center, which will include the first Alamo Drafthouse movie theater in the state.
Phase five of the development calls for a mix of residential units spread across 26 acres, 7.36 acres of common open space and just over 4 acres of green space. Rouzan is being built at the intersection of Perkins Road and Glasgow Avenue.
The fifth phase will take up nearly 38 acres in Rouzan, which, overall, is 117.6 acres in size, according to documents submitted Thursday with the Planning Commission.
The revised plans for the neighborhood center call for 100,000 square feet of commercial and office space spread across nearly 17 acres.
Developer Tommy Spinosa has said he wants the retail to be a mix of services that Rouzan residents want, such as a flower shop, along with regional draws, like the movie theater.
The Planning Commission is set to vote on the Rouzan issues at its Nov. 16 meeting.
Also scheduled for the agenda:
- A request to rezone the former Capital City Grill space at 3535 S. Sherwood Forest Blvd. Phillip LeDoux wants to rezone the building to open a craft beer and sports bar called The Tap House.
- A final development plan for a Zaxby’s restaurant in the Greens at Millerville development. The restaurant will be at the intersection of Millerville Road and Millerville Greens Boulevard. The Greens at Millerville is being built on the site of the old Fairwood Country Club. Developer Windy Gladney’s plans call for 320 apartments and 393,000 square feet of retail and office space to be built on roughly 54 acres.
This will be the fifth local restaurant for Zaxby’s, the Georgia-based chain that specializes in chicken tenders, chicken wings and salads. Restaurants in Gonzales, Watson, Zachary and at the intersection of Airline Highway and Antioch Road are under construction or in the planning stages.
