The Next House is the best next step for all of us.

Why PAR is partnering with the UL Architecture Department to build new homes.

When the University of Louisiana (UL) Architecture Department launched their initiative to build new downtown homes, we knew it was a perfect partnership opportunity. These homes meet several objectives:

  • Masters level architecture students design the homes as part of their education, affording them hands on experience.
  • Local craftsmen and contractors work alongside the students to insure quality construction.
  • The homes are built on lots adjacent to the university, helping to bolster home values and serve as just some of many neighborhood investments in the UL Master Plan.
  • The homes feature advanced architectural features at a considerable value to consumers.

Who benefits from UL's investment in these homes?

Families — What family wouldn't enjoy a a beautiful new home with all the latest features? UL incorporates advanced construction techniques, efficient design, Energy Star appliances and more. As an added plus, they can also expect lower utlity bills.

Economy — It's no secret that demand for advanced-construction homes continues to rise no matter what economic condition we're in. That's good news for the entire real estate sector, which employs thousands of people in our area.

How we're helping.

From the inspiration of the University of Louisiana's architectural program comes an incredibly efficient, incredibly affordable home. To help, PAR is listing and promoting the property commission-free. Learn more about it in the video below:
