D.R. Horton pays $4.4M for lots in planned Old Jefferson Highway subdivision

D.R. Horton bought 53 lots in Heron Pointe, a planned subdivision off Old Jefferson Highway, for $4.4 million on Friday.

The new subdivision, which the Baton Rouge Planning Commission approved in 2020, will be near Parkview Baptist on Parkknoll Avenue. 

According to the commission’s application summary, the subdivision will include 53 four-unit lots and four common area tracts.

The 13-acre site was reportedly acquired by DB Heron Pointe LLC, the recent deal’s seller, in November 2020. DB Heron Pointe is represented by Ross Bruce and Brian Dantin, and Dantin previously said the homes would not be entry level.

Plans were originally to break ground in 2021.

A representative for D.R. Horton could not be reached by this morning’s deadline for publication.
