JACKSON — Plans for a $1 billion revitalization project for downtown Jackson have been thrown into doubt because of a decision by Hinds county officials to back out.
The proposed Old Capitol Green project included office, residential and retail space and a 450-space parking garage.
The Clarion-Ledger reports county supervisors voted 3-1 to bow out of the project after a closed-door meeting.
The development would span 13 blocks along Commerce Street between Pearl and Silas Brown streets in Jackson.
The project developer, Full Spectrum South, was expected to comment some time today.
