Planning Commission gets applications from Rouzan, Performance Contractors, Hilton and more

Plans for the next phase of the Rouzan Traditional Neighborhood Development, as well as those for a new building for Performance Contractors, a new Hilton hotel and a new single-family subdivision, are among the applications submitted to the Planning Commission by today’s deadline to be considered for approval at the commission’s April 20 meeting.

Developer Tommy Spinosa filed a final development plan for the Neighborhood Center at Rouzan, his traditional neighborhood development in Southdowns. The Neighborhood Center, which will be anchored by an Alamo Drafthouse movie theater, will comprise eight acres and include more than 71,000 square feet of commercial, office and residential space in three separate buildings, which will be four stories each. According to the application, plans also call for 215 high-density residential units among the three buildings and 873 parking spaces.

The Planning Commission staff says though they have not yet reviewed the plan, they have identified two minor problems with the application. One of the commercial buildings encroaches slightly on the public right-of-way on Perkins Road. Also, the landscaping plan submitted for the TND does not follow the city-parish points system, which is a way of notating that certain standards are met. Commission staff members plan to meet with Rouzan engineers Friday to discuss the issues.

Also submitted today for approval is an application by Performance Contractors for a small planned use development, or SPUD. The industrial contractor is planning to build a new three-building office complex totaling some 250,000 square feet on vacant land adjacent to the company’s existing headquarters on Pecue Lane. Chris Town, subcontract manager for the company, says the proposal is a long-term master plan and that all three buildings will not be constructed at once. He says the company is currently pricing the construction project and will determine how quickly it wants to start construction and which buildings will be developed first.

An application was also filed today for the first Louisiana location of Hilton Hotels & Resorts’ contemporary, extended-stay brand, called Home2 Suites. As Daily Report has previously reported, the hotel is set to open in the first quarter of next year. According to the plan review application, Supreme Construction wants to build the 56,000-square-foot hotel at 10800 Siegen Holiday Circle, located just off Siegen Lane between Interstate 10 and U.S. 61.

Also submitted today is a plan for a new single-family subdivision, Hunter’s Trace, which will be located at Burbank Drive and Pelican Lakes Parkway adjacent to the existing Pelican Lakes development. The 291-lot subdivision will comprise 85 total acres and is being developed by Ross Bruce, who could not be reached as of this afternoon’s deadline.
