East Baton Rouge Parish, LA

Rouzan Traditional Neighborhood Development

This project was started over 10 years ago by another developer with a different engineering firm. The project was plagued with challenges. Our client, Engquist Development, acquired the project in 2018 when approximately a quarter of the property was developed. Everything had to be reevaluated including: the Concept Plan for the TND; drainage and floodplain mitigation, utilities, access and much more. It was a great opportunity for DDG to put our proactive and comprehensive approach to work and has solidified a relationship with one of the biggest developers in the region. Our Civil Engineering, Survey, Landscape Architecture, and Water Resources continue to work on the new phases of the project. 

"Managing constant change for a development with many restrictions in a jurisdiction with a complex review and approval process has been a challenge but it has been really cool to be part of a project that went from stagnant and troubled to become extremely desirable and successful."
