HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Residents and management of a Hattiesburg low-income apartment complex joined bank officers and city officials Wednesday to celebrate the multi-million dollar renovation of that complex. Overlook Apartments has just completed a $5.5 million rehabilitation project.

Both exterior and interior work was done, including new vinyl siding, new heating and air-conditioning systems, new plumbing and new energy-efficient appiances and windows.

Federal grants and loans helped complete the project.

"It helps the image of the area to begin with, because when you pull into the complex, you see that it's being cared for, that the residents here care about their properties and the owners care about the residents," said Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny Dupree.

"We also have 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedrooms, so all of those were renovated, the bathrooms (also)," said Kristi Magee, resident services coordinator at Overlook Apartments.

About 300 residents live in the 120 apartments at the complex.
