See events for details.
The Lifestyle Center is a 10,000 square foot community building that features an internet café, private movie theater, fitness center, executive conference room, gourmet kitchen and multiple living areas for social and community events. The center is designed to reflect the traditional design style of A. Hays Town.
“LEED Certification is a tremendous credit to our team. This achievement is a testament to their focus on delivering lower costs to our tenants while minimizing the carbon footprint of our developments,” says U.L. Coleman Companies Development Manager, Cole Guthrie.
Coates Bluff at Wright Island is a multifamily living development located near Clyde Fant Parkway and the Shreveport-Barksdale Highway. It includes 252 energy efficient one and two bedroom apartments on a tree-shaded swatch of land rich in history and rife with foliage.
A LEED plaque ceremony will take place in the coming weeks.
