A Shreveport businessman is leading an effort to revive a proposed entertainment, retail and housing development along Cross Bayou in downtown Shreveport.
Dubbed Cross Bayou Point, the proposal would include a sports area, a municipal office complex, and up to 5,000 housing units. Developers also want to lure a charter school to the site.
Paul Pratt talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the Cross Bayou Point project, a proposed 10 year, $1 billion commercial, retail, sports and housing project in downtown Shreveport and Ledbetter Heights.
A new player has emerged with a vision for developing downtown Shreveport's Cross Bayou, just five months after an earlier plan faltered.
The new vision — it's not clear how far planning has advanced — would require a public-private partnership in a 10-year, $1 billion development of Cross Bayou and Ledbetter Heights.
