Development group to restore buildings, build lofts in downtown Hattiesburg

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Several development groups announced Sunday the construction of 55 new apartment, retail, commercial and professional spaces in downtown Hattiesburg.

Hub City Lofts, Thrash Development, and Albert and Associates Architects issued a press release explaining the The America Building, formerly known as the Ross Building located on the corner of Front Street and Short Street, and The Carter Building, formerly the Faulkner Building located on the corner of Front Street and Main Street would soon offer 62,000 square feet of space for new occupants and a courtyard.

"There is a resurgence happening in Downtown Hattiesburg right now. Momentum is really growing, and people are excited to be a part of the rebirth of such a rich community," said Rob Tatum of Hub City Lofts in a prepared statement. "We can't wait to see what these two buildings, and the lives lived in them, are going to mean for downtown."

The companies have also partnering with RARE, a Hattiesburg-based consulting group, to develop press releases and branding for the venture.
