An Exciting Transformation of a Landmark Property
The 440 on Third gives a fresh lease on life to a well-known financial services building in the heart of Downtown Baton Rouge. This new mixed-used development features modern residential and commercial spaces, exceptional amenities and the opportunity to live, work — or enjoy both — in the city’s fast-growing business and entertainment district. Whether you’re at home or work, everything you need is just blocks away.
Preserving a storied site. Most recently home to the Capital One Bank Operations Center, the 440 Third Street address has a long history of serving Baton Rouge residents’ and businesses’ financial needs. The Bank of Baton Rouge built the site’s original structure, later inhabited as Fidelity Bank and Trust. In 1957, Fidelity National Bank constructed the existing building, which became home to Hibernia National Bank in Baton Rouge years later. Our development plan preserves the building’s high ceilings, tremendous views and impressive lobby.
Meeting today’s needs. The 440 on Third’s mixed-use design combines contemporary Class A office space with affordable apartments in an area of town with scarcely any residential vacancy. A new Matherne’s Supermarket location on the ground floor will provide much-needed access to people in this area where two food deserts overlap.
Adding signature features. The newly built ninth-floor penthouse office suite affords sweeping, 360° river and city views. And the fifth-floor deck lends a touch of unexpected luxury to this downtown property.
Building for tomorrow. Weinstein Nelson Developers’ goal is to add another 50+ years of useful life to this property — and by pursuing LEED certification, we’re fully committed to energy efficiency and resource stewardship for tenants both now and far into the future.
