Those look beautiful. I hope this comes to fruition. Is this the same project that was announced earlier this year?

I'm looking forward to it.

Jackson for some reason always does the opposite of "under promise and over deliver."

Why the grand press releases and dog and pony shows for construction that is far from guaranteed?

Agreed, but I do hope this comes to fruition. This could be a major anchor for North Fondren and help further the reach of the Downtown, Belhaven, Midtown, downtown Fondren, North Fondren, Eastover shopping, dining and entertainment plex that Jackson is slowly building. This is the second project to try to redevelop that land that we know of, so I imagine someone is committed to the rebirth of Meadowbrook and North Fondren.

The WAPT story: https://www.wapt.com/article/jackson...ments/40849435 provides a little more information. It reports that the city is already working on a proposed walking trail and the Eubank creek flooding in the area. I imagine that the city is also committed to this development.

As always, time will tell.

I'm undecided about that architecture. I'd like for them to plan it as if that entire Triangle Mart area will be transitioned into a little city within a city.

There are prettier apartments out there. I actually love the new Quarter apartments over on Lakeland. They have a nice roof which makes it vaguely reminiscent of a real building in England. The District at Eastover architecture is contemporary but quite elegant.

The original blue Fondren building, Art Deco style with French doors and Spanish-style balconies, is also terrific. These people could do better. With that said this is fabulous news. I've always thought that general location (over to Highland Village) is ideal for these kinds of infill developments because it's so close to everything including even Madison/Ridgeland area
.

Crews have started demolishing the old McRae's this week, even in all of the heavy rain.

This! A little revitalization is warranted. Also, how many hair and wig shops can you have in one area? Since the rents for the new apartments won't be cheap, you figure the people staying there will have higher incomes. I am hoping that will bring in more upscale businesses to the area.
