The land where Towne Center at Cedar Lodge is located has a colorful history. For generations this 109 acre tract of land was privately held. It was sold in 1993 to the state for $4.1 million for development of a research park but after prolonged litigation the sale was rescinded. When all the dust (and dirt!) settled, most of the land was sold for commercial development. And, as timing and luck would have it, Hurricane Katrina blew the residents of New Orleans to Baton Rouge right about that time. The result: Towne Center at Cedar Lodge, and explosive growth in the center of Baton Rouge.
Today the area is referred to as Towne Center and consists of mostly upscale retail and office space. There has been some new residential development, but the big beneficiaries of growth have been long time, nearby residents who now have great shopping just minutes away.
