Township at Old Goodwood is an infill and Small Planned Unit Development (SPUD) conceived out of a traditional residential design layout, open space connectivity, pedestrian-friendly streets, and smart growth practice. This proposed (08) Unit development provides Single Family Detached Housing on residential lots of 5,300 to 9,000 square feet with 60’-80’ street and/or open space frontage(s). The site density is 4.71 units per acre on 1.7 acres total and is in accordance with East Baton Rouge Parish’s FuturEBR Plan. Typical home size is estimated to be 2,000 to 4,000 square feet at an average of 3,000 square feet. Development and lot open spaces will yield an average of 20%.
This project is designed to promote views in and out of the site, pedestrian walkability, safe streets (traffic calming), community connectivity, foliage preservation, sensitivity to existing Single Family edge conditions, and high-quality residential housing. This project is 100% pre-sold to similar market types and buyers of sister development — e’tage Gardens on Government Street. Through restrictive guidelines, an architectural/landscape/planning review board, and the Home Owners Association — Township at Old Goodwood will be one of the premier residential developments along Lobdell Avenue and in Baton Rouge.
Land uses will be limited to Single Family Detached Housing, Landscape Amenities and Open Space for the gathering of residents and guests. The 1.7 Acres currently contains 1 detached single family home along with 2 curb cuts off Lobdell Avenue and LaSalle Avenue. There are approximately 25 existing trees that will be assessed by a licensed arborist, protected to their fullest extent and incorporated into the landscape and housing designs.
Township at Old Goodwood will be near many of Baton Rouge’s most desirable amenities:
