The $70-million CottonMill Marketplace mixed-use development in Starkville looks like it could begin in January, according to a story in the Columbus Commercial Dispatch this morning.
The two phases of the project will total about $120 million, according to Mississippi Business Journal reporter Clay Chandler. The first phase will include the renovation of the old E.E. Cooley Building into office space and a conference center, a parking deck and the construction of a hotel and a restaurant. The second phase will include student housing and retail space. Nicholas said he expects construction to last about 18 months.
A log cabin on the southeast part of the site that once housed a Burger King will be disassembled. Nicholas said he sold the cabin to Jackson attorney and real estate developer John Arthur Eaves, who has plans to erect the cabin in Oxford, though it’s unclear what it will be once it arrives.
