Property Acquired for Prairieville Developlment

Originally published in The Advocate 

Brian Dantin and Ross Bruce have purchased 60 acres of land near Prairieville to build Hidden Farms, a 142-lot development, in the spring.

DB Hidden Farms LLC bought the 60-acre site on Brown Jr. Road near Old Jefferson Highway in Prairieville for nearly $2.8 million, according to Troy Collins and Steve Legendre, of Sperry Van Ness | Graham, Langlois & Legendre, who brokered the sale.

Collins said the land was assembled from seven separate tracts.

Hidden Farms will feature amenities such as lakes and parks. The pricing for homes in the development are still being worked through, but Bruce said Hidden Farms will be aimed at people buying their first or second home.

Plans are to have the first homes in Hidden Farms ready for the fall. The development will be built out in two phases of 71 lots each.

''We feel great about the location,'' Bruce said. ''Demand has been pretty consistent in Ascension, especially on the northern end of the parish.''

''The ongoing industrial expansion and quality school system continue to fuel the demand for quality residential development in Ascension Parish,'' Collins said.

Dantin and Bruce have built a number of developments in East Baton Rouge Parish, including The Offices at City Farm, a 60,000-square-foot office park under construction on Jefferson Highway; The 333 Lofts, a condominium complex outside the South Gates of LSU; and The Magnolia Lakes development on Burbank Drive, between Staring Lane and Lee Drive.
