HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Work has begun on a $34 million project to redevelop the site of a former residence hall and parking area just south of the University of Southern Mississippi campus.        

The "District at Midtown" will be a mixed-use development at Hardy Street and South 31st Avenue.

Chad Newell, president of the Area Development Partnership, said it will feature a 100-room Hotel Indigo, along with adjacent retail shops, restaurants and apartments.

CR Properties, LLC, the principle developer, and local officials will host a groundbreaking in March.

Construction should take 12-18 months.
