Casino Magic Eyesore to Get Renovations After Katrina

Ten years after Hurricane Katrina, an eyesore along the Coast has finally begun construction. Just across from Harrah’s and beside the Golden Nugget stands the remains of Casino Magic in Biloxi.

The casino and the Santa Maria Catholic Housing are two of the few buildings in Biloxi that have not been restored since Katrina. At Tuesday night’s Biloxi City Council meeting, Community Development Director, Jerry Creel, announced that building permits for construction inside Casino Magic have been issued.

Creel says, “We have issued a plumbing repair permit for the existing building and we have issued an electrical repair permit for the existing building and the permits were all issued to restore the existing building as it was built originally.”

The Biloxi Community Development Department is keeping further reconstruction details under wraps.
