According to Crowley’s Mayor, Greg Jones there are big things on the horizon for the Rice Capital.
Crowley will soon experience one of its largest economic development in years in 2016. Derek Development Corporation, based out of Lafayette is working on a development along Frontage road which will include a 50,000 square foot grocery store, three car dealerships, restaurants and residential sites.
“We are now in conversations with DR Harding which is the countries largest home builder and he’s interested in joint venturing with us on the residential home building so that’s very exciting to bring that kind of caliber builder to Crowley.” said Rocky Robin, broker for Derek Development Corporation.
The residential portion will be a gated community, a first for Crowley.
