The location of the parcel purchased is to the immediate East of Target in the Prien Plaza Shopping Center and North of the LA-Z-Boy store, a previous Contraband Pointe sale.
The Collett firm built the main entrance and the access lane behind an existing outparcel available within Contraband Pointe.
As reported in this April 6, 2021 American Press article by Rita LeBleu, the Collett firm was impressed with the Lake Charles City Planning Department. Robert Wright, brokerage and development specialist out of Collett's Dallas office, commented that "It was a very smooth process, and that doesn't always happen..."
The tenants and future tenants in the Marcel Contraband Pointe Development are going to enjoy the visibility and traffic count on I-210 as well as busy W Prien Lake Road.
There are 5 hotels to the immediate west of this parcel. At only single occupancy, this translates to over 450 customers who can easily walk to the retail shops and restaurants in Marcel Contraband Pointe. The guests in the hotels on the North side of W Prien Lake Road and other nearby hotels will certainly be drawn to what this development is going to offer.

Southwest Louisiana is already familiar with the immensely popular Shucks Restaurant in Abbeville. With the purchase and closing of the property North of the Hampton Inn to Shuck and Boil of Lake Charles, freshly shucked oysters, boiled crawfish and more will soon be available locally.
If their menu is anything like the Abbeville Restaurant, a new standard in Louisiana Cuisine and atmosphere will be achieved for the Lake area.
Finally, a place to enjoy Louisiana food overlooking a beautiful Louisiana Bayou setting! Whether visiting by car or boat, Shucks is destined to become a "must" in your culinary destinations.
