The law firm of Dampf, Thibaut & Hessburg could be moving soon from its One American Place office in downtown Baton Rouge after inking a deal this morning to purchase one of the buildings in Don Joffrion’s 6700 Jefferson Office Park development near Town Center.
The law firm purchased a 3,813-square-foot building for $700,941, marking the first completed deal in the development for Joffrion and broker Mathew Laborde with Beau Box Commercial Real Estate.
Dampf, Thibaut & Hessburg, currently in Suite 1640 at One American Place, handles family, criminal and personal injury cases. The firm has a second office in Suite A at 2004 False River Road in New Roads. Attempts to reach officials at the firm for additional details were unsuccessful as of this morning’s deadline.
Of the six buildings planned in phase one of the 6700 Jefferson Office Park development, two are completed, including the law firm’s new home, and construction is set to begin within the next month on two other buildings.
Laborde says the developers have three buildings under contract to be sold, but those sales have not been finalized. One of the buildings is also under contract to be leased by a home health company. The sixth building, a 4,100-square-foot build-to-suit space, is the only building from the first phase not under contract.
Trula Remson of Remson Haley Herpin Architects, the lead architect on the project, has said the firm is drawing on French influences to create a traditional space with painted brick, arches, gas lanterns and pitched roofs.
Phase two of the development could begin sooner rather than later, Laborde says, because of the overwhelming response developers have received for the first phase. Preliminary site plans for phase two call for 13,000-square-foot two-story buildings.
