Harahan Condos, Colonial Country Club and the Belle Rive Condos. Proposed Condo Project?

Plans for the Belle Ive Condos have been proposed by Lauricella Land Co. to build a 17 story, 154 unit-Luxury Condominium project with an complete upgrade to the Colonial Gold and Country Club golf course. The units will range in size from 900 sq. ft; to almost 2400 sq. ft. The prices will start at $350 per square foot.

The Redford Group, a Birmingham, Ala.,-based golf development and management firm that had a hand in the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, and golf course architect Nathan Crace of Watermark Golf in Jackson, Miss. Building architecture was handled by PageSutherlandPage out of Houston.

Parking to the complex will be a three story parking garage with 300 covered spots plus additional spots in a parking lot. The top of the garage will be an amenities deck where residents will have access to a pool, spa, outdoor kitchen and gardens.

“The current Colonial clubhouse would be demolished and replaced by a facility on the ground floor of the condominium tower, Lauricella said. It would include an expanded lobby, a restaurant and bar, men’s and women’s locker facilities, lounges and a 5,000-square-foot fitness center. ” according to the Times Picayune.

“Is there going to be opposition to this project? Absolutely.” Lauricella said. “I think the amount of this opposition is going to be less than it was before. Albeit equally as vocal, but significantly less.”

Being a resident of Harahan, I think its a great idea to have something like this. The course can be upgraded to first class place for golfers. It can attract people from all over the area that would like the condo life style in an upscale development. It should be some great views of the Mississippi River as the land is on the river. Keeping the golf course is great news as a housing development would not be in the best interest of Harahan.

    Hank, I love you man, but I think you are a greedy SOB for ruining the property values of the surrounding area.

    Lenny, I however do not think it would have a negative effect on the area. It would only help values in the area and make the Country Club even better. That is my opinion.

    Well? What’s next? Looks like the future HUD apartments have been shelved. The economy will not support that project and other planned condo projects in the area. I wish you the best but not to the neighborhood detriment.
    Eric I respect your opinion, but maybe this above gives you an idea why I am against the condo project.
    I do apologize to Hank. My comments were uncalled for.
