HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The old Barnhills and Pit Town Restaurant on Hardy Street in Hattiesburg is getting an all new look.

The building is being completely renovated and when finished will house 8500 square feet of retail and office space. Almost one third of the property will contain what developer Andy Stetelman and his partners describe as an up and coming national deli franchise.

The building is located in the 3300 block of Hardy Street near the Southern Miss campus. The new name for the complex is Campus Edge Center.

Pre-leasing of the retail and office space inside is already going on.

As of now, no time line has been released for completion of construction or an opening date.
