The townhome-condo market around LSU is racing.
At the South Gates of LSU on Highland Road, Brian Dantin has already built the Parker Place condos, which sold out in days and earlier this month won a design award from the Growth Coalition.
Dantin's second upscale condo development near LSU, West Parker Townhomes, also sold out quickly, moving its 10 units inside of a week. The condos are not cheap, with two-bedroom units selling for $230,000 and three bedrooms fetching $265,000.
Fast sales have Dantin looking for other area projects, but prices are high for even older apartment complexes. I would love to redevelop the entire street."
