Biloxi City Council to Consider Mixed-Use Proposal

From: City of Biloxi    Vincent Creel    Filed 6/26/06   GCN

A proposal for a mixed-use development that would include 220 residential condominiums and commercial uses on a three-acre site off Water Street in downtown Biloxi will be among the measures before the Biloxi City Council during its meeting on Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m.

The development, known as City Place, would involve the former Dees Chevrolet site and land stretching along Water Street from Main to Dukate streets. Two buildings – one five-stories and one standing 11 stories – would house commercial uses on the ground floor, with one-, two- and three-bedroom residential condominiums above.

Developers are seeking to expand the Central Business District zoning to allow the mixed-use.

Another proposal on the council’s agenda is a request for a zoning change that would allow Benachi Place, a development that would include one residential lot and seven duplexes off Querens Avenue.
