COMMUNITY IMPACT

Located in the West Jackson section of Jackson, MS, the University Park project involved the acquisition and construction of a mixed-use facility directly across the street from a newly-built Jackson State University (JSU) Student Union.

The project has created 22,000 sq. ft. for retail/offices and 78 housing units for JSU students and faculty. Units are fully furnished, with access to high- speed Internet, exercise rooms, and activities.

The project represents Phase I of a larger revitalization initiative to develop workforce and student housing in the city. The project leverages the JSU student body to attract retail and commercial businesses and amenities for local residents and the community-at-large.
