Pelican Lakes is 323 Unit Apartment Community in Baton Rouge, LA
Pelican Lakes EB5 Visa Apartment Investment, a 323 unit “Class A” luxury apartment community located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The ±23-acre development site is located at the intersection of Burbank Drive and Pelican Lakes Parkway in East Parish and is approved for 323 market-rate apartments, within 29 two- and three-story garden style buildings, with 533 parking spaces (1.65 per unit) which includes 75 garages.

The Baton Rouge market experienced extremely positive conditions following significant flooding in 2016 which constrained the housing stock, with occupancy rising close to 100%. What was presumed to be a temporary situation is becoming a more permanent opportunity given that former owners are now renters-by-choice. Designed to accommodate theses renters-by-choice, the Property will distinguish itself from competitors with significantly larger units featuring storage and loft space, private ground floor entrance to all units, and high-quality finishes. Furthermore, the community will feature a full amenity package including, but not limited to, Clubhouse with Leasing Center, Gaming/Media/Multi-Purpose Room, Fitness Center, Resort Style Pool, Outdoor Fire Place & Kitchen, Internet Café & chef kitchen, Outdoor Grilling Centers, Business Center, and a Car Care Center.
