About Us

Founded in 1951, CPRT seeks out development opportunities that add to the greater good and ensures profitability.
Our Mission

The Wilbur Marvin Foundation exists to support the charitable mission of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation and other qualified beneficiary organizations. We do that through grant making and the facilitation of real estate development projects that benefit the regions in which we operate.

Since its founding, The Wilbur Marvin Foundation has worked to develop real estate projects that were sound business developments that also served the greater good of the communities where they are built. Every year the Foundation and CPRT have embarked on bigger and more ambitious projects. In Downtown Baton Rouge CPRT constructed a multi-use complex that consist of an office building for IBM’s Global Delivery Center and 525 Lafayette, an ten-story residential tower consisting of 85 luxury apartments. In North Carolina, CPRT developed 5401 North, a master-planned community spanning over 400 acres and designed on the principles of sustainability and community. Also in North Carolina, CPRT has just begun Kannapolis Crossing, a 318-acre master-planned community at the northern gateway to Charlotte. CPRT and the Baton Rouge Area Foundation and CPRT have taken the leadership role in developing and managing the Water Campus, a 35-acre complex that will promote an environment of shared resources and relationships dedicated to creating a new knowledge economy based on the study of water and the critical issues we face regarding coastal protection and restoration.
