WIRED AND
WIRELESS
The Campus will be connected to the world with the
highest wired speeds, allowing researchers working
there to share giant data sets in real time with their
counterparts, like their colleagues at Deltares, the
Netherlands organization protecting its country from
the North Sea. Within the Campus, people will use
wireless links while strolling along the river or resting
on a park green.
LOCATION
The Water Campus is under construction in the
Nicholson Corridor, a major artery that is targeted
as a growth area under East Baton Rouge's
comprehensive plan. On one end of this corridor
is downtown. On the other is Louisiana State
University. Next to The Water Campus will be The
Water District, a 40-acre combination of housing,
retail space and offices that can be used by
employees who work on The Water Campus. A
modern tram is now in the pre-development phase,
with the anticipated line running from downtown
to The Water Campus, and onward to LSU.
