Downtown Baton Rouge: Nearby Necessities

October 10, 2018 / Baton Rouge

When you’re searching for the perfect apartment, we all focus on the big things: “Does the kitchen have granite counters?” “Is there a pool?” “How’s the fitness center?” But we apartment hunters often overlook one big question: “How close is the nearest grocery store?” or “Is there a bank nearby?”

Whether you’re stocking up groceries for the next month, picking up a prescription, or grabbing cash before a night out with friends, you’re just a few blocks from all the necessities at The Heron Downtown and The Commerce Building.


Whether you’re a budding at-home chef or surviving off frozen pizza and La Croix, it’s important to have a convenient grocery nearby. Matherne’s Market full-service grocery on North 3rd & Laurel Street is just a 10-minute walk from The Heron Downtown. Or if you’re in desperate need of eggs, milk or other necessities, Downtown Grocery is just 3 blocks away.


With Chase, Capital One, Regions, Iberia, Hancock Whitney, and Business First Bank locations or ATMs located within half a mile of the building, it will be no problem to deposit a check or grab some cash.


Nobody wants to hike across town just to pick up a prescription, luckily Prescriptions to Geaux is located around the corner from The Heron Downtown. With a full pharmacy, over the counter medications, vitamins and supplements, and first aid items available, Prescriptions to Geaux has you covered. Or take advantage of their prescription delivery and get it dropped off at the building!
