Mississippi: Proposed upscale rental housing in East Biloxi would be walking distance from coast casinos Mary Perez, The Sun Herald · August 5, 2022 at 3:00 pm Much of Point Cadet in East Biloxi is still empty lots 17 years after Hurricane Katrina, providing space for a townhouse project proposed in walking distance to three casinos. The townhouses at Maple and Tchula streets went before the Biloxi Development Review Committee Tuesday. Designs by the Pickering Firm, an architectural and design company, show 28 townhouses in four buildings. The townhouses will be three stories, said Cara Wagner, an engineer at the Biloxi firm. Parking and patio space will be on the ground level, topped by two floors of living areas, with 880 square feet of space per floor. The townhouses will be built by Elliott Homes on property the company will purchase from the Biloxi Housing Authority.
