Report: Benson buys Bluebonnet-Burbank land in Baton Rouge
BATON ROUGE - Saints and Pelicans owner Gayle Benson has reportedly purchased more than two acres of land near the intersection of Bluebonnet Boulevard and Burbank Drive.
The Advocate reports GMB Properties Bluebonnet LLC, which lists the New Orleans businesswoman as an officer and shares an address with the Saints' Metairie offices, bought the land from Pearson Burbank LLC Tuesday.
Mark Hebert of Kurz & Hebert Commercial Real Estate, who represented the seller, said a new Ochsner facility is planned for the plot of land. The Bensons have historically had a relationship with Ochsner, including a $5 million donation to start the Gayle and Tom Benson Cancer Center at Ochsner’s location in Jefferson.
Ochsner told the Advocate it had no further information to share on the development at this time.
