DENHAM SPRINGS --  CST Land Developers, LLC, will hold a preview event, open house and ribbon cutting Thursday, June 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. to officially mark the opening of The Palms at Juban Lakes Luxury Apartments.

The $24.5 million 144-unit luxury apartment community is located at 11020 Buddy Ellis, just off Juban Road.

The Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce and the Baton Rouge Area Chamber are hosting the event, which begins at 4 p.m. when the developers, investors, and parish officials cut the ribbon. The event continues at poolside until 7 p.m. with a medley of Louisiana tastings. The public will be able to tour the clubhouse, pool, and a fully furnished three-bedroom model.

Principals of CST Land Developers are Tom Delahaye, Stan Baudin, and  Chris Coffin, of Plaquemine and Baton Rouge. This is the sixth major project of the firm since it was formed in 2006.

The Palms at Juban Lakes is located on 16½ acres on Buddy Ellis Road in Denham Springs, part of a 69-acre parcel the partners purchased in July 2006. It is located about a mile from the Juban/Interstate 12 interchange at 11020 Buddy Ellis Road.

CST Land Developers began leasing the 144 units in April, according to Community Manager Tanya Layson of Denham Springs.  

The community includes traditional three-story garden-style walk-up apartment buildings designed for lake and wooded views on the grounds. The community was designed by architect Lance Malley, AIA, of The Architectural Studio of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  

Murray McCullough of Benchmark Group, LLC, provided the engineering design, and the contractor is Block Construction of Baton Rouge. The interior design was done by Karen Giffel, a local design professional.

“This development is a high-end market rate development that has many unique features in the one-, two- and three-bedroom gated community,” Delahaye said. “The Palms has hardwood-styled panel floors, garden tubs, 5’ walk-in showers, stainless steel appliances and quartz counters. It will also feature garages and carports. The third floor two-bedroom apartments also boast 11-foot ceilings as a special amenity.”

The community also features several site amenities including: a large designer swimming pool, basketball courts, a fully-equipped fitness center,  a luxury club house with a resident lounge and coffee bar, a billiard/game room, two dog parks, and a playscape area.
