NEW ORLEANS, LA (February 10, 2021) – Beau Box Commercial Real Estate (BBCRE) announced it has formed an official partnership with Tamanend, A Weyerhaeuser Community, located on 848 acres in Lacombe, LA. BBCRE will represent Weyerhaeuser in all commercial real estate transactions for Tamanend’s various retail, office and light industrial opportunities.
The first comprehensive mixed-use community in St. Tammany Parish, Tamanend is a true live, work, play, learn and produce environment anchored by an Innovation District that includes Northshore Technical Community College’s (NTCC) main campus and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program, along with a proposed town center. The community boasts two Louisiana Economic Development (LED) Certified Sites spanning 80 acres for office and warehouse development. Over 1,300 residences in a variety of home styles and prices are planned, along with nature trails, pocket parks and additional green spaces.
“We are eager to showcase the vast potential of what Tamanend has to offer. Tamanend is the model for what mixed-use communities should look like moving into the future as it includes education, civic, residential, light industrial and office opportunities,” says Beau Box, President & CEO of Beau Box Commercial Real Estate. “With Weyerhaeuser at the helm, a respected and responsible partner, we expect this community to attract businesses, families and students from around the region to the Northshore.”
St. Tammany Parish has seen noticeable growth from 2010 to 2019 as population rose by 11.4% and jobs increased by 20%. The Parish’s blue-ribbon school system, top-tier medical facilities, low crime rate and low cost of business make it one of the most attractive places to live, work and raise a family in the country.
