Situated along the banks of the Mississippi River, L’Auberge Casino & Hotel Baton Rouge is designed to capture the feel of a southern riverfront lodge and bayou retreat. The campus is located along the river, with the casino spaces tethered to the batture land on the river side of the levee. This first phase was comprised of a 12-story hotel on the land side of the river levee and 210,000-square feet of casino and support spaces on the river side. The 206-room hotel includes 30 luxury suites, roof top pool, party space, and a health club. The casino facility houses a 1,600 seat convention and event center, and numerous dining facilities. This included a 102-seat fine dining steakhouse, a 211-seat multi-media sports bar, a 300 seat grand buffet, and a feature bar with live entertainment. The project also involved the coordination of a significant Louisiana state highway relocation. Manning Architects coordinated a team of 25 consultants through the fast-track process with design starting in the summer of 2010 and the project opening in the fall of 2012; additionally Manning Architects provided full-time on site contract administration throughout the duration of the project.
