Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux has issued requests for proposals for the redevelopment of the Buchanan Garage and the land around it.

Robideaux says anyone can turn in a proposal, and he is open to ideas such as hotels, office space, residential space and more.

Anita Begnaud, the CEO of Downtown Development Authority, says this could present a great opportunity.

“It’s a great opportunity for developers. However, I think for it to be realized, I think its going to take motivated leadership and a collaboration with the local government body and those developers to make sure that we help this opportunity reach its full potential,” said Begnaud.
