Lake Charles Port Approves $7.2M Building
LAKE CHARLES, LA (AP) — The Lake Charles Port Board has approved construction of a $7.2 million port administration building, with work scheduled to start in December.
The American Press reports the building will be next to the port's old administration building, which has been leased to the U.S. General Services Administration. Since September 2012, port officials have operated out of a temporary location.
Bill Rase, the port's executive director, said the 20,000-square-foot facility will have a design similar to buildings in the Walnut Grove neighborhood. He said it will feature a boardroom that will allow videoconferences.
