Downtown Jackson Ms Development!

Relocate to Jackson MS, Downtown Jackson MS developmentYes, that's right it's your time to put up or shut up Jackson, Ms! Boom or Bust!

Yesterday I attended a session at the new Telcom Center on the development and progress of the downtown area.  This event was sponsored by our local Jackson Association of Realtors and "DJP" Downtown Jackson Partners.  DJP is working very hard on restoring old Jackson to what it needs to be for a downtown area that thrives not only from 9 - 4 but 24 hrs. a day!  

How are they trying to do this you say?  Well, they have put together a team of local economic development agencies, area property owners and existing building management companies to retain and expand Downtown businesses, as well as, to attract new ones. This totals over 1 Billion Dollars of development flowing into Jackson!

Downtown Jackson is becoming a world-class neighborhood. Developers have converted warehouse space to incredible loft apartments. Office buildings have become extraordinary examples of mixed-use developments with luxury apartments on the top floors. More residential units continue to come online with several projects on the drawing boards.

Downtown offers residents an assortment of entertainment within walking distance. Whether it’s watching a Broadway Show, listening to the symphony, viewing world-class art or dining at one of the 30 restaurants in the area, you can find it Downtown.

Call me to book your appointment today to tour some of these beautiful properties in Downtown Jackson!
