Sales are strong at recently completed 333 Flats condo project near LSU

It’s been a busy few months for Dantin Bruce Developments.

While the company is in the initial stages of its new Offices at City Farm office park on Jefferson Highway along with more than a half-dozen other projects, construction has finished on 333 Flats, the companion high-end condominiums to 333 Lofts on East Boyd Drive between Burbank Drive and Highland Road—and just in time for the fall semester at nearby LSU.

“It’s the best time to finish,” says Brian Dantin, one of the developers on the project near the LSU South Gates that broke ground last summer.

Twenty-four of the 36 units in the three-story development are sold—including two that were pre-sold—leaving several two-bedroom units, two studio condos, one three-bedroom unit and a four-bedroom unit. All the single-bedroom units have been sold, Dantin says.

“It’s been very successful,” Dantin says.

The floor plans in 333 Flats offer more variety than the units in its sister building, which only has two- and three-bedroom choices among its 28 units. The prices range from about $150,000 for the studio condos to $250,000 for the two-bedroom condos to $300,000 for the three-bedroom condo and $397,000 for the lone four-bedroom condo in the building.

Dantin says the gated condominiums are well protected, with a security card needed to access the interior corridor, something he says is sure to appease the security-conscious parent. Dantin has said the impetus for the adjacent condominium complexes was the lack of secure student-friendly condos near LSU. The interior corridor, meanwhile, features a fireplace, barbecue pit, mailboxes and private patios.
