Wampold Development

For veteran developers, Mike Wampold and John Fetzer, The Preserve at Harveston is the first step in realizing a vision more than a decade in the making. The first of three phases, The Preserve at Harveston is designed to provide the best of New Urbanism while honoring the architectural heritage and natural beauty of South Louisiana.
Situated on one of the last remaining large undeveloped tract of land in Louisiana’s Capital City, The Preserve at Harveston will provide an unsurpassed living experience in a one of a kind location. The large landmass allows the preservation of untainted wetlands on the property. The preservation of these natural wetlands is at the core of the developers’ vision for Harveston. The abundance of acreage also provides space for 90 acres of lakes, an extensive system of nature trails and thoughtfully planned homesites.
