A new Downtown Lafayette residential development, called Buchanan Heights Townhomes, will soon be located in the ‘V’ at the 300 Block of S Buchanan, W 2nd St, and W 3rd St.
We were provided a tip about land clearing in the ‘V’, between the Uptown Lofts, and Cité des Arts. This prompted us to do some digging, which resulted in the information you’re reading now. We also managed to score a simple drawing of how the new townhome development will be laid out.
According to the plans by Everette E. Mays Architect, the new Buchanan Heights Townhomes development in Downtown will be a 3-story 30 unit building with 29 total parking spaces. The 2nd & 3rd floors appear to come with balconies, which may be great for Downtown parades.
The Downtown area needs more residential space if it is ever going to be the place to work, live, and play.
