BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1ltW0Wx ) will build a new corporate headquarters in Baton Rouge from which to manage its growing portfolio of newspapers and websites across south Louisiana.

The building will be on a now-vacant lot fronting the paper’s production plant near Interstate 10.

The three-story, 48,500- square-foot building will house the newsroom of the Baton Rouge Advocate, as well as the business offices for all three of The Advocate’s daily papers and its growing number of weekly papers.

Groundbreaking is scheduled for Nov. 1 with a move-in date in early 2016.

The paper now rents a building on the Bluebonnet Boulevard campus of Jimmy Swaggart Ministries, which it moved into in 2005.
