IMG_7732Mausan Development officially broke ground on Sugarcane Townes. This $200 million dollar development, located in Iowa, LA, will be one of the largest real estate developments to ever be built in East Calcasieu Parish.

Sugarcane Townes is a multi-family residential neighborhood with 661 units over more than 200 acres, and will also include commercial space opportunities, a 6,000 ft circular walking path, more than 15 ponds, and other world-class amenities.

“This is going to grow our community,” said Carol Ponthieux, Mayor of Iowa. “We couldn’t be more excited about this project. It’s going to create jobs. This is history being made.”

“This is a smart development. For example, they’re making beautiful water features that will serve as a source for better drainage. This project is going to provide a better quality of life for our citizens. We need it,” said Kevin Guidry, President of Calcasieu Parish Police Jury.

Construction on the first homes of Sugarcane Townes will begin in early 2018.
