North Park Estates in Gulfport holds grand opening

South Mississippi House Development Corporation and Gulf Coast Housing Partnership held a ribbon cutting ceremony today for North Park Estates in Gulfport.

The newly opened community entered the development stage about ten years ago and only began construction in 2020 due to several hardships including hurricanes and COVID.

The complex, located at 8234 South Carolina Avenue, is now officially open with 80 affordable housing units and a playground for the kids.

The complex is currently under construction for phase II which will add 40 more housing units to the area. South MS Housing Development Corp. President Justin Brooks said, “Today really is a culmination of a lot of hard work and the fruit of many, many hands and a lot of labor, and so today we’re just happy to celebrate. We’re ready to come together for the community and the residents who call this home and just celebrate this great accomplishment.”

The project costs about $17 million to complete.
