BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -
Almost six years after Hurricane Katrina put his hotel out of business, Anthony Lee is determined to build back better. He said he's ready to get the ball rolling on a seven-story hotel and a water park on the Biloxi beachfront.
On Wednesday, Lee went before the Biloxi Development Review Committee to talk about his plans. The hotel would be located on six acres Lee owns at the corner of Grand View Drive and Highway 90.
When Katrina washed away much of the Biloxi beachfront, the Breaker's Inn was one of the casualties.
"I had trouble with Katrina from my house and all of my hotel. Everything gone within one day," said Lee. "It's been six years, no business."
Now Lee is looking to build a new hotel where the Breakers Inn once stood. He and his architect listened to Biloxi Development Review Committee members express their concerns about drainage, set backs, fire protection and other issues.
A hotel isn't all Lee has planned. There will be an arcade, cinema, concession stand and an area for children's birthday parties.
"We will have the hotel with about 70 rooms, the water park, the mini-golf, the go-cart trucks and the 3D movie for the children," said Lee.
He said although he's had some unsuccessful attempts to redevelop this property in the past, he's determined to keep pressing forward. Not only for himself, but also to help the community by putting a water park back on the beachfront.
"Six years since we have Fun Time USA water park. Nothing built back. Now I'm trying to get something to build to help the people of Harrison County, especially Biloxi," said Lee.
Lee said he would be able to start construction on the hotel water park six months after receiving approval. He said, ideally, he would be open for business in the Spring of 2012.
