Contraband Pointe is the name of the mixed-unit development that encompasses 149 acres bordered by W. Prien Lake Road, Contraband Bayou, and L'auberge Blvd (formerly Nelson Rd), to the East and North of Prien Lake Plaza. Presently, approximately 111 acres remain available.

The name was selected because approximately 5000 feet (4000+ remaining) of the property fronts the historic and beautiful Contraband Bayou.  

This bayou is so named because the famous Pirate Jean Lafitte was rumored to have buried treasures along its shores.
