LA State Capitol Complex - Master Plan
The Capitol Park Master Plan was designed to consolidate state agencies into the park-like capitol campus, while respecting the State Capitol and connecting to nearby downtown Baton Rouge. Building upon the existing Fourth Street axis to the state capitol, the plan expands and further delineates the formal theme of the Capitol Grounds. Emphasis is placed on pedestrian scale, incorporating green plazas into each building site, establishing pleasant corridors between buildings, and integrating Capitol Lake sites and a riverfront park. To date the plan has resulted in over 1,000,000 SF of new construction at a cost of $350,000,000.
