Luxury hotel on Tullis property in Biloxi gets green light

There’s a luxury development in the works for East Biloxi.

Take a look at the master plan for what will be the Tullis Gardens.

During Tuesday’s City Council meeting– members gave the green light for developers to continue building an upscale 200-room hotel, scenic gardens, and even a full-size replica of the historic manor house.

The 8-acre site is city-owned waterfront real estate– between the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art and Oak Street– and stretches to Howard Avenue.

Tullis Gardens will include an 11-story hotel with penthouses and suites and a rooftop restaurant facing the waterfront.

And next to the grand structure will be a replica of the 19th-century Tullis-Toledano Manor that was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina

Developers will build around the property’s Live oak trees that survived the storm, determined not to cut any down.
