LSU Foundation may build new headquarters




LSU Foundation representatives are talking to potential donors about the possibility of building a new headquarters near the site of the old Alex Box Stadium. Spokeswoman Sara Crow says the foundation has run out of space in its current, rented home at the Lod Cook Alumni Center on West Lakeshore Drive, and says a new building would fit well with the university's plans for the Nicholson Gateway mixed-use development. A discussion about a possible ground lease for a 149,250-square-foot site at Nicholson Drive and Skip Bertman Drive is on the agenda for today's LSU Board of Supervisors meeting. Crow says the size and cost of the building have not been determined. She says the foundation would benefit from having its own space to host events. LSU Press and University Relations are housed in separate buildings on West Lakeshore among several sorority houses; Crow says those two units might join the foundation in the envisioned new building, which would create space for LSU to bring on a new sorority or two. —David Jacobs
