New Development Heading For Denham Springs

It's a huge triumph for people in Livingston Parish working quietly to attract big name retail development.

Today, WAFB 9 News has learned that the same company that built Towne Center at Cedar Lodge in Baton Rouge is about to embark on what could be an even bigger development near Denham Springs.

The big announcement will officially be made Wednesday morning. One person WAFB 9 News spoke with today said that this will be much more than a mall and that when construction is complete, he'll have no reason to drive back into Baton Rouge again.

WAFB's Avery Davidson has obtained the purchase agreement signed November 6 which sold 74 acres of land to Creekstone Junban I, LLC. The president of that company is owned by Stephen Keller, who also owns the company which developed Towne Center at Cedar Lodge.

The exact tract of land is just northwest of the new Juban Road interchange on I-12. Sources close to the development will not say exactly what shops will be on the land, wanting to keep some surprises for tomorrow's official announcement.

WAFB will have more on this developing story on 9 News at 5 and 6 p.m.
