Groundbreaking on new Hotel in Pass Christian
Today in Pass Christian, a crowd gathered for the groundbreaking of a brand new, 80 room custom designed hotel.
The city and a Jackson based development group have partnered up to create a hotel that will represent the historical significance of this area. The hotel will be constructed on the corner of Market Street and West Scenic Drive with a view of the Gulf.
Pass Christian Mayor Chipper McDermott says this hotel is a key component of the city that is still recovering from Hurricane Katrina. “Not taking away from any other projects we’ve had. Couldn’t have done it without them, but I think this piece of property has been dormant as long as it’s been, to have that on here will create the western part of this town, to start stimulating and get growth in it. I think it is the straw that will stir the drink of economic development here.”
If all goes as scheduled, the hotel should be completed and open for business by October 2017.
