Shops, hotel planned for mixed-use development in coast city
OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) — Shops, restaurants, a boutique hotel, office space and homes could be built in a city on Mississippi’s coast as officials have agreed to a contract with two developers over a vacant lot.
WLOX-TV reports Jackson County supervisors approved on Monday an $850,000 bid on the property in Ocean Springs. Developers John Oropesa and Jim Hardin of OHOS Land, LLC had offered the money a couple months ago and now they have 60 days to close the deal.
Oropesa and Hardin say they are excited to be a part of making something the community will be proud of. The local private developers’ plan for a mixed-use development could change depending on what is required over the next few months.
