Duany Plater-Zyberk was selected Monday morning to create a plan to map out the redevelopment of a 100-acre section of Midcity, surrounding the former Entergy site on Government Street.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Redevelopment Authority chose DPZ after hearing presentations from their team and the other finalist, Architects Southwest of Lafayette.

DPZ is led by Andres Duany, the urban planner who led development of the master plan for downtown Baton Rouge. The team also includes Chenevert Architects of Baton Rouge; Stantec, an engineering firm with Baton Rouge offices; local developers Danny McGlynn and Donnie Jarreau; the Center for Neighborhood Technology, a Chicago think-tank that promotes sustainable development in cities; and MindMixer, an Omaha, Nebraska, company that helps organizations connect with local communities.
