The Water Institute of the Gulf

 

The Water Institute of the Gulf, a 33,000-sq. ft. building, is a hub for community gatherings and an iconic mark on the banks of the Mississippi River, embracing the area’s ecological nature into the design. Located on the historic Baton Rouge City Dock that was completed in 1926, the facility features a research center, interpretive gallery, co-working spaces, exhibit areas and conference facilities. The Water Institute of the Gulf is one of the first key tenants of The Water Campus, a catalyst for economic growth in Baton Rouge developed by The Baton Rouge Area Foundation,  real estate development firm Commercial Properties Realty Trust, Louisiana Economic Development and the East Baton Rouge Government.

 

The first floor of The Water Institute houses WaterWorking, a co-working space featuring open flexible offices and workstations that support the building’s mission of cutting edge technology, collaboration, community, sustainability, openness and accessibility. Additional seating areas reflect the ecological design and allow for employees and visitors to experience the abundance of spectacular views of the surrounding banks of the river. The Estuary, located on the third floor, is an 8,000 sq. ft. conference center that offers sweeping views of the river and bridge. Flexible seating allows the center to host academic conventions, research conferences and private events. A world class facility, the research park and campus will attract coastal and deltaic studies experts and position Louisiana as a leader for coastal restoration, sustainability and solutions.
