A building on W. Chimes Street, which first served as the original Kappa Alpha fraternity house, has been purchased by a real estate investor who plans to transform the space into a restaurant and bar, according to The Greater Baton Rouge Business Report. The building most recently served as the Chimes Textbook Exchange.
The building is now owned by Clark Heebe, who is being represented by broker Wade Greene, according to The Business Report.
“We are looking for a restaurant concept that wants to be at the footsteps of LSU,” Greene said, according to The Business Report. “The property is really going to look great once completed. We will have front elevation renderings completed next week, and will work together with the prospective user to finalize the floor plan.”
