Biloxi Council OKs property sale for Hilton Garden Inn

In his weekly report, Biloxi Community Development Director Jerry Creel said the city council has approved the sale of surplus property on Beach Boulevard to hotel developers for the construction of a Hilton Garden Inn.

The hotel will be on the former specialty hospital property, east of the former Santa Maria Del Mar.

Plans for the hotel call for five or six stories and 100 guest rooms.

Also this week, Creel said the Development Review Committee reviewed site plans for a new Biloxi Junior High School on Richard Drive, a new Citizens Bank on Popp's Ferry Road, a new Woody's Roadside Restaurant on Beach Boulevard at Althea, a new pet care facility on Hopkins Boulevard, and a 12,000-square-foot office/retail center at Lorraine and Woolmarket roads.
