The Baton Rouge, La.-based RV Shop has purchased 5.1 acres mixed-use development with plans to break ground on a new dealership there later this year.
Millerville Green paid nearly $2 million for the land, according to documents filed Monday with the East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court’s office, according to The Advocate.
Gladney plans on eventually building 320 apartments and 393,000 square feet of office space on the site at Millerville Road and Interstate 12 that had been home for the Fairwood Country Club and golf course.
Millerville Green was set up by Gerald Vince, who founded the RV Shop in 1976. The business sells RVs and parts for RVs and provides service.
Tyson Vince, who serves as general manager of the RV Shop, said the plan is to move the dealership from its current location at Choctaw Drive in Baton Rouge.
“This gives us an opportunity to have more visibility on the interstate,” Vince said. “It opens us up for people passing east to west. This is the best location for RVers.”
