This 66+- acre parcel is on the North side of Contraband Parkway near L'Auberge Avenue, leading to the Lake Area's two casino and golf resorts.  With 4,000+-' along Contraband Bayou and over 1,000' along Contraband Parkway, this first-time listing offers endless potential.  

Due to the close proximity to the casinos and golf resorts, major retailers such as Walmart, Sam's, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and many others, this property offers a tremendous opportunity for a lifestyle center or major hospitality hub.

Besides the driver-friendly access from the internal traffic circle on Contraband Pointe, visitors can easily access Contraband Pointe from the traffic circle at W. Prien Lake Road/Contraband Parkway from the South or Nelson Road from the West. Plus, any project will benefit from being so close to I-210, not to mention the approximate 3000 hotel rooms within 1.5 miles, including L'Auberge and Golden Nugget.

With construction on the Nelson Road extension bridge expected soon, the location becomes even more enviable by offering easy access from the prestigious Shell Beach Drive area and Downtown Lake Charles.
