About East Bank District
For the past two decades, Bossier City, like most communities in the U.S., has looked for ways to revitalize its downtown area, but has always been faced with the challenge of how to go about the process and how to finance the project. Since knowing that a re-energized downtown would aid in the success of the new high technical jobs that were coming to the area and also become a tool for economic development of the downtown area, the city took action and engaged the services of a local architectural firm, McSwain Architecture, to be the project architect for the redevelopment process.
