A facilities study that could guide the State of Mississippi’s policies for accommodating its office and other operational needs is expected to be completed before the Christmas holidays.

International commercial real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield is wrapping up work on the second part of a study whose initial phase led to a recommendation to move the Mississippi Department of Revenue into downtown’s Landmark Center, 175 E. Capital St. The new phases address whether the state should seek to lease, buy existing buildings or build new ones when new agencies are created or existing ones expand.
