COMING SOON: WATERMARK
One of Baton Rouge's first skyscrapers was built in 1926 and was originally the home of Louisiana National Bank. It was recently purchased by developer Mike Wampold in the spring of 2014. The 12-story art deco building is located on the corner of convention and Third Street and currently offers over 92,000 square-feet of office space. The building was most recently used to house state offices, but the state announced in 2013 their intention to sell the building. In the spring of 2015, renovation work began on the interior to convert the office building into a 148-room Marriott Autograph Hotel.
