Baton Rouge developers Corbin Ladner and Jamison Chauvin are poised to begin construction in the next few weeks on a 24-unit townhouse complex on Jefferson Highway near Hoo Shoo Too Road, across the street from the Willowbrook commercial center that’s under construction.
Mallard Cove Townhomes will be situated on 2.8 acres the duo purchased a few weeks ago for $412,000, says commercial real estate broker Chris Pike with Mike Falgoust & Associates.
The townhomes will come in two- and three-bedroom floor plans, each with an enclosed garage, and will sell for about $179,900 to $199,900 each, Pike says. The partners hope to have the first of five proposed buildings completed in July. Four of the buildings will include five townhomes within, while the fifth building will be composed of four.
Pike says the development’s Jefferson Highway location, its proximity to the Willowbrook center—which could include up to nine different businesses when complete—and the builders’ reputation for using high-end materials should make the townhomes attractive to homebuyers. He adds a subdivision may also be coming to the property adjacent to Mallard Cove.
“It’s a good piece of property at a good price in a good location,” Pike says.
