The former Woman’s Hospital is officially on its way to becoming a new public safety complex for Baton Rouge Police and the East Baton Rouge Parish …
How It EBRP Sheriff’s Office Buying Woman’s Hospital Will This Help Baton Rouge Real Estate?
A large police presence will only help home values in 70806 (Goodwood) and possibly help 70815 (Broadmoor) maintain values BECAUSE as we see in the local news, Florida Blvd is line of demarcation between crime and troubled housing markets to the North and those not experiencing these problems south of Florida Blvd. PERHAPS the police presence will help preserve home prices below Florida Blvd.
Areas south of Florida Blvd in Sherwood Forest (70815) and Riveroaks (70819) and the multi-family areas of both zip codes have experienced declines in home prices as a result of foreclosures and the problems located North of Florida have begun filtering down. If you drive to the end of Goodwood Blvd and cross Flannery Rd, along the streets of Brinwood Ave, Holt Dr and Braewood Ave, you will get an abrupt eye opener of how multi-family housing has become such an eye sore!
A Stronger EBRP Sheriff’s Office presence is most certainly needed in Mid City much more than it is where the current substation is at Barringer Foremand Rd in 70817.
