OCEAN SPRINGS — A developer has received an early approval from Ocean Springs aldermen for a townhouse project on Front Beach that received approval from the Planning Commission.
Lee Brumfield is proposing 41 individual townhouses on 5.6 acres.
Before Katrina, the acreage held a 112-unit apartment complex.
The Sun Herald reports Wednesday the new project would be a zero lot line development with townhouses starting at 2,200 square feet at roughly $350,000 to up to 4,000-square-foot homes in the $1 million range. The concept would be to have two- and three-story units, some elevated with parking underneath.
Brumfield sees it as a less dense development than a standard condo project. The units would be custom-built with buyer input.
He said the idea is to build and sell them as they go.
