The LSU Nicholson Gateway Development infuses an underutilized 28 acre tract of property across Nicholson Drive from Tiger Stadium from the North Gates down to Skip Bertman Drive with a vibrant mixed-use development that incorporates 38,000 retail square feet, 1,197 undergraduate apartment beds, 332 graduate apartment beds, and 794 structured parking spaces with an additional 762 surface parking spaces.  The program is developed into two mixed use structures, one retail building, five residential buildings, and a parking facility working in conjunction with the LSU Foundation Building to create the Nicholson Plaza faced with retail, a new campus quadrangle with a University Recreation facility, and private courtyards all set within existing live oaks.  The buildings visually draw from the historic core of campus to claim this property as part of the LSU campus, with a blend of stucco, clay tile, dark bronze vertically proportioned windows, and brick veneer.
