Real estate recap: New landlords organization coming together … Bethany withdraws plans for church near Towne Center … New sports and leisure venue planned for B.R.
Rules and regulation: After being incorporated last fall, when the Metro Council was considering imposing new regulations on landlords via an ordinance that ultimately failed, the Baton Rouge Independent Landlords Organization will begin to take shape Thursday when its first organizational and planning meeting is held. The meeting is set for 8:30 to 11 a.m. at the offices of the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors, 14101 Perkins Road. Read a story from Daily Report for more details here.
Off the agenda: Via its engineer, Bethany World Prayer Center sent a letter to the city-parish Planning Commission Friday withdrawing its twice-deferred application for a proposed 1,050-seat church on Jefferson Highway, next to Towne Center. The church had been slated to make a presentation before the commission Monday on the plan, which had met opposition from some nearby residents concerned about traffic flow.

Getting some change: A new concept called Quarters—essentially a combination bar, restaurant, arcade, bowling alley and laser tag venue—is expected to open in October at the corner of South Sherwood Forest and Coursey boulevards. Keidrick Alford of Baton Rouge-based IDEA Development, which represents Quarters, says the entire complex will measure nearly 40,000 square feet. Daily Report has the full story here.
