BATON ROUGE - Interior demolition for the $22 million conversion of the Commerce Building in downtown Baton Rouge is expected to begin within 60 days.

Michael Lang, who is managing the redevelopment of the building at Third and Laurel streets, tells The Advocate the entire interior - except columns and slab - will be ripped out.

Plans are to turn the 175,000-square-foot building into a mix of loft apartments, retail and a restaurant, with interior parking.

Milton J. Womack Inc. has been selected as the contractor for the project, Lang says.
