It’s an unseasonably cool Monday morning in Jackson, and there’s some news to pass along.
Jackson Mayor Harvey Johnson is holding a press conference at 10 a.m. at the McCoy Federal Building to announce a new development. The press release from Downtown Jackson Partners President Ben Allen said it’s going to be “huge.” That was as specific as it got. Magnolia Marketplace will be there and will provide the details as soon as it wraps.
What it could it be? Stay tuned.
Updated at 10:25 a.m.: The McCoy Federal Building is getting $80 million worth of modernization work, including new HVAC units and interior repair to make the building more energy efficient. There will also be the construction of a new security pavilion at the entrance. The project is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. New MBJ staff writer Nash Nunnery will have a full story up on the site soon.
