Passion for Progress

Since 1987, the Downtown Development District has been a passionate advocate and catalyst for the growth and vitality of Downtown Baton Rouge.

Our team works to initiate, incubate and support partnerships that develop and enhance the District, using community-driven master plans and economic incentives to aid private-sector and nonprofit philanthropic organizations in their development and entrepreneurship efforts. These partnerships have produced unprecedented momentum and excitement for the future of Downtown — we’re immensely proud to be a part of it.

The recent flurry of new developments and exciting events is creating an exciting framework for what’s to come in Downtown Rouge. With quality schools, diverse entertainment options and unparalleled cultural amenities all within walking distance, it’s no wonder more and more people are finding Downtown the perfect place to live, work and play.
