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.
Contraband Parkway opened for traffic in July 2019, connecting W Prien Lake Road from the traffic circle to L'auberge Blvd (formerly Nelson Road).
The owners donated the land for this 4-lane road, which offers a median, sidewalks on both sides, and an internal traffic circle.

At this time, individual lots are not available. However, those interested in registering their interest and type of lot desired are encouraged to e-mail
The owner's goal is to sell large parcels to residential developers.
It is anticipated that a variety of home types will be offered, including condos, single family, townhouses, and live-work.
Waterfront lots as well as non-waterfront lots are envisioned.
Part of being developer-friendly involves being flexible. The owners are very willing to consider other ideas.
Yes. Deed restrictions and architectural standards will be developed.
