Construction company acquires land in Baton Rouge for $3 million

When approaching a significant purchase of commercial real estate, it is best to be fully prepared for what may be both an exciting and complex process. A 59-acre piece of land was recently sold for $3 million in Baton Rouge. The land was purchased by a construction company that plans to build an asphalt plant on the property.

The construction company that purchased the land specializes in paving, civil construction and industrial construction.
