BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Marking a major milestone for L'Auberge Baton Rouge Casino & Hotel, the structural frame of the hotel was completed Friday. As one of the final hurdles toward completion, the topping off of the 12-story hotel is a celebrated construction event.
"The topping off of the hotel is a highly anticipated construction milestone and demonstrates how much closer we are to our grand opening this summer," Mickey Parenton, Vice President and General Manager of L'Auberge Baton Rouge, said. "Thanks to our hardworking construction team, we are able to celebrate this momentous achievement today."
The casino portion of L'Auberge Baton Rouge was topped off in November of 2011. The construction of the $368 million hotel and casino began in May of 2010. Construction on the hotel and casino is expected to be completed this summer and an anticipated opening by Labor Day.
