The City of Biloxi continues to think of ways to improve residential housing and attract more tourists. So, be on the lookout for a new development in the works.
The old Breakers Inn property near Grandview Drive and Beach Boulevard on Highway 90 was a proposed development back in 2016 which included four apartment buildings, a four story hotel, a clubhouse, and a free-standing restaurant.
Those plans are now being revised to place the restaurant inside the hotel and eliminate the clubhouse and the number of apartments may change as well.
Biloxi Community Development Director Jerry Creel tells News 25 about the perfect location for potential residents in the future. “I think that this is a great area to have those residential dwelling units and apartments where people can walk to and from the mall, that can walk to and from the coliseum. They are right across the street from the beach. So, I think this is a good centralized location for us to have more residential and certainly we can always use more hotel rooms.”
The property is already zoned correctly for these developments. If no variances are necessary, the project can move forward once the review committee approves the plans.
