Vermilion Lofts is one of numerous developments in the works that will bring residential units to Downtown Lafayette.

On Friday, July 26, Vermilion Lofts held a "topping-out" ceremony to celebrate the completion of the top floor of their new mixed-use project on Vermilion and Jefferson Streets.

This event is yet another that showcases the progress in Downtown Lafayette.

"It's one of the first mixed-use projects in downtown Lafayette to happen...we're excited to be at the forefront of starting to build residential downtown, so people are not just playing down here and working down here, but they can live down here too," said Stephen Ortego, architect and developer of the project.

Vermilion Lofts is located at 436 E Vermilion St. in Lafayette.
