Real estate experts skeptical about zoo relocation

BATON ROUGE - As BREC officials insist on evaluating the relocation of the zoo, real estate experts remain skeptical.

Beau Box specializes in commercial real estate and says finding a location that meets all of BREC's requirements will be challenging. 

Box argues most large commercial areas are either taken, pricey, or require a wetland permit.

"Larger development tracts have all been gobbled up, picked over, and developed," said Box.

There are three locations Box believes may be feasible: the farmland near L'Auberge, the LSU Rural Life Museum off Essen Lane or along I-12 and O'Neal.

But according to Box, even these locations are tricky.

"It's going to be tough to find," Box said.
