Nicholson Gateway

Nicholson Gateway is a 28-acre mixed-use housing and retail development located on the northwest corner of Nicholson Drive and Skip Bertman Drive across from Louisiana State University’s (LSU) Tiger Stadium and Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The development will include a 1,500-bed student housing and athletic dormitory with study areas and green spaces, as well as roughly 40,000 square feet of university-focused retail space.

Stirling Properties is the retail developer and leasing broker on the project, working with the prime developer, Georgia-based RISE, that specializes in student housing. Stirling Properties will also handle on-going retail property management.

Nicholson Gateway opened to students for the fall semester of 2018. The development will transform one of the largest remaining underdeveloped tracts of university property, turning an overlooked area into an exciting new corridor.
