BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Work is underway to rebuild and preserve a portion of two apartment buildings in the shadow of the State Capitol on Spanish Town Road.
Soon to be called the Depree Apartments, the labor of love is years in coming together.
Fire and neglect ate too much of the original 1920s era buildings. Historic tax credits will partially finance the project for the new owner. With a finish date of next March, six new apartments will emerge on Spanish Town Road near Fifth Street.
