Sea Coast Echo to move to new digs, makes way for condo project on Court Street
The Sea Coast Echo is moving to a new home to make way for a condo project on Court Street, the newspaper announced on its website on Thursday.
The newspaper building at 124 Court Street will be demolished later this year to make way for a four-story, mixed use condominium building. The Sea Coast Echo, which has served Bay St. Louis and Hancock County for 128 years, is moving to 835 Highway 90, Unit 8, which is a rental space in Hancock Square.
The new project, called 124 Court, will include 24 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos ranging in size from 547 square feet to 1,452 square feet. The building also will have gated parking.
Developers also plan for restaurants on the ground floor and a rooftop deck with views of the water, a fitness center and a library.
The Echo will be moving in late May or early June, making way for the demolition. Construction should take 16 to 18 months, according to the Echo.
The development is owned by 124 Court Development. Principals of the corporation are Steve Drown and Jared Riecke.
