Dallas firm seeks to demolish abandoned Brandywine condos and build new apartments
BATON ROUGE – For some time, the Brandywine condominiums have been an eyesore to locals, and though community leaders have been eager to eradicate blight, they've been unable to finalize a decision in regards to Brandywine's abandoned homes.
But now, an out-of-state company is chiming in with a proposal that community leaders may find attractive.
According to The Advocate, the Sonoma Housing Advisors of Dallas has submitted a site plan to the City-Parish Planning Commission that would demolish the condos on Darryl Drive and replace them with the Sherwood Oaks Apartments.
If built, Sherwood Oaks would be a 280-unit apartment complex featuring a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments.
The planning commission will meet to vote on the site plan, Jan. 21.
