New construction is planned for the administrative offices of the Lake Charles Harbor & Terminal District, which operates the Port of Lake Charles.
In a 7-0 vote, the district’s board of commissioners awarded Jeff Kudla AIA Architect LLC a contract for site selection and design of a new port administration building, which will serve as the port’s new headquarters.
The Port’s current administration building at 150 Marine St. in Lake Charles has been leased by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA).
The Port’s administrative offices have moved to 751 Bayou Pines East, Suite P.
The Kudla firm is responsible for the design of many notable downtown buildings including the new Lake Charles Transit building (Ryan Street at Gill Street) and Empire of the Seed’s Phoenix Building (Ryan Street at Kirby Street). The firm recently designed Sowela Technical Community College’s School of Nursing building.
The Port of Lake Charles encompasses 203 square miles in Calcasieu Parish, is governed by a seven-member board of commissioners and operates marine terminals, properties zoned for industrial use and two industrial parks.
