Rex Cabaniss


Urban design is a passion of Rex’s - specifically how buildings interact with the environment and enhance the sense of community that we share. He’s experienced the evolution of a variety of urban environments throughout his career, having worked on master-planned commercial developments in Portland, Austin, Houston, and London prior to settling in Baton Rouge. For the last three decades, Rex has infused this broad design inspiration into Gulf South projects as Partner at WHLC.

Rex is also recognized for collaborating on many vital planning and design components of downtown Baton Rouge: Downtown Visitors’ Amenity Plan, Plan Baton Rouge II, Baton Rouge Area Chamber, River Center Library, and II City Plaza.
