    40 years ago UL could not foresee filling up the Athletic Complex.

    History repeats, many can't picture the advantages of 100 downtown acres.
    Well said.

    Got you.

    Being so land-locked is why I think that "Land Acquisition Strategies" section is so important....it's the only way we can make everything more cohesive. Wish I could write a really big check, lol.

    And someone asked about the Lourdes property: anyone know anything about where are with that?

    That is news to me. I've been tailgating in Lourdes Park for 10+ years and was told by someone in my group that the area would be eaten up by the construction and not moved. I hope you are right!

    In any event I think the original question was the Lourdes property on St. Landry st, not Lourdes park at the Tigue. Who's on first?

    ---Well I think that originally after Lourdes move it was hoped to be a teaching area for nurses and possibly a quasi med school--however the facilities weren't compatible for that purpose---but the space, the parking garages, and the future connections of the campi are such a great hope---I keep thinking that the HF sale might be tied in someway to this eventual plan---Sure hope so!!! Oh and I always tell recruits that G Park is part of campus!!! lol

    I don't think UL was ever interested in the old OLOL buildings....there were LOTS of issues with them. I think it's always been about the land, which provides a natural connection between the main and athletic areas.

    And are you telling me that girard park is not part of the campus?? Lol

    Frenchie, I believe the reference was more about the old hospital than the park. You are right about the park shifting but it will be non-existent for a few years.

    I just took the post about Lourdes Property meaning Lourdes Park. But in any case I was told by I assume someone that knew the answer that the park would be move near the T@F building. When is another thing........

    I'm sure Lourdes might have something to say about that. Didn't they put something like $200K in the construction of that park?

    It would be foolish to assume that that wasn't discussed with the Lourdes folks when the original stadium plans identified that the footprint for the new stadium would eat up the Lourdes space. Don't be surprised if it doesn't move further down the line and maybe put it into a position where folks in the park can actually see the game without having to lease the space they rented.
