It’s been about 1.5 months since the Less Pay motel had been demolished and the new Bottle Art Lofts project began. Time for a little update.
Located at four corners at 120 N University Ave, the new Bottle Art Lofts development is bringing in about 105 units of living space for artists, creatives, and probably those who claim to be an artist. The project is happening in two phases and will offer its residents a swanky little slice of Lafayette that was otherwise destined to decay for years to come.

Today, you can see that what was left of the Less Pay motel is now gone forever. The land has been cleaned up and there is a clear view of the backside of the former Coke-Cola plant, which is the main Bottle Art Lofts structure. The two warehouse buildings on the backside of the property already show a decent amount of progress with newly installed steel wall supports.
Lots of work is still left to be had but, with the investment, this corner will be put to much better use than what it was being used for prior.
Below are mixed photos showing current progress as well as what the property looked like before any construction and demolition started.
