JACKSON — The start of Jackson State University’s 2010-2011 academic year will coincide with the opening of the initial project in a $125-million development designed to reshape the area around campus.

One University Place is a four-story building featuring 78 apartments on the upper floors and retail space on the ground level.

The Clarion-Ledger reports the apartments are being marketed to the public, but JSU officials hope to attract married and graduate students who do not have a housing option on campus.

Developers are hoping to attract businesses that cater to the community that aren’t found in the surrounding areas.

Christopher Reed, executive director of JSU’s auxiliary enterprises division, said students and faculty often drive elsewhere to eat or shop, but this project can reverse that trend.
