Two more subdivisions proposed for Hoo Shoo Too Road area

From the Baton Rouge Business Report, Real Estate Weekly:

When the 90-home gated community of Mallard Park was  proposed north of Hoo Shoo Too Road in May, the city-parish Planning Commission  denied the development because the developer refused to connect it to outside  streets. The Metro Council gave Mallard Park final approval anyway, overriding  the Planning Commission. Now come proposals for 239 more homes in the same area.  Oak Ridge Estates would be a 149-lot development south of Elliott Road, a little  more than half a mile northwest of the intersection of Elliott and Hoo Shoo Too;  Mallard Trails would be a 90-lot development in the 22250 block of Hoo Shoo Too,  east of Wood Duck Drive. Both developments appear to have extra connectivity  rather than one entrance and exit, says Planning Commission spokesman Ryan  Holcomb. “I think we’ll be able to get the approval,” says Mallard Trails  developer George Robinson, declining to give details about the 56-acre  subdivision. Applicant Brandon Dodson could not be reached for comment on the  proposed 66-acre Oak Ridge Estates. Holcomb says details about both developments  could be on the Planning Commission’s website by Nov. 2. The commission could  hear the proposals Nov. 13. —Adam Pearson

New or upgraded real estate apps opening more doors

From the Baton Rouge Business Report, Real Estate Weekly:

For a while, it seemed as if the real estate  industry was rolling out an app a day, each and every one promising to  “revolutionize the way homes are bought and sold,” as their news  releases routinely and breathlessly promised. As The Los Angeles Times reports, the hyperbole has abated a bit, and the pace of introductions  seems to have slowed proportionately, but there’s still plenty of app  activity because consumers have come to expect information on demand  about homes on the market. These days, house hunters routinely hit the  streets armed with their smartphones, expecting to be able to stand in  front of a house on Elm Street and learn everything from the listing  price to the property taxes to the square footage in the powder room and more. So the apps are still coming. Click here for a complete overview of a half dozen new or updated apps—including  Zillow Rentals, RentCafe, Revestor, House Hunter, HomeSnap and  HomeFinder—that are gaining popularity.

This week’s poll question: Have you used a real estate–related app when searching for or selling a home?

Real Estate Recap: October 3, 2012

From the Baton Rouge Business Report:

Hungry for more: While Galatoire’s new restaurant in the Acadian Village Shopping Center on Perkins Road is on target to open before the end of the year as planned, owner John Georges is looking seriously at expanding the venerable New Orleans institution into the Houston market. Georges tells Daily Report he has identified two potential sites in Houston’s posh River Oaks neighborhood and that he could open what would be Galatoire’s first out-of-state restaurant as soon as next year. Read the full story here.

Industrial giants: LED is working with five industrial prospects that are looking to build projects in Louisiana that are bigger than the Nucor Steel project in St. James Parish, which could be worth as much as $3.4 billion when all is said and done, according to LED Secretary Stephen Moret. Of the five, Moret says, “one, maybe two” could be built in the Capital Region. Those projects could be part of a sustained industrial building boom that might lead to 40,000 new industrial construction jobs in three to five years, he says. Daily Report has the full story here.

On the bright side of the road: Fremin Construction has preliminary plans for luxury townhomes at 3757 Brightside Lane that will be modeled on the company’s recent development, Chatsworth Court Condominiums, on South Kenilworth Parkway. The new development is planned for a vacant 2.5-acre tract of land on the south side of Brightside Lane, between the Riverbend subdivision and River Road, but closer to the levee than the adjacent neighborhood. Get more details in the full story here.
