Lafayette Consolidated Government is issuing a Request for Proposals for the redevelopment of the Buchanan Garage and associated parcels of land, located in Downtown Lafayette.

The proposal invites potential developers to submit a proposal for the site that could be a future mixed-use development and cites a growing interest for new commercial, retail and housing spaces in the urban core.

This approximately 1.2 acre site, comprised of both parish-owned and city-owned property, is located in the heart of Downtown Lafayette. With frontage on Jefferson (Downtown’s main corridor), Buchanan and West Convent Streets, the site offers incredible development potential for residential housing, hotel, retail, office and parking. It is located in an Opportunity Zone, Downtown Development District and a State Cultural District, allowing the ability to stack multiple incentives depending on the proposed redevelopment.

Final proposals are due LCG by June 14, 2019. All information for the Buchanan Redevelopment RFP, including schedules and technical information, can be found at
