ST. MARTIN, MS (WLOX) - One of Jackson County's largest apartment complexes is receiving a total makeover. The Reserve at Gulf Hills is owned by the Heritage Corporation. That company is spending $6 million totally renovating the entire complex.
Every one of the 408 units at The Reserve will be completely redone. That includes new stainless steel appliances, lighting, new flooring, as well as granite counter tops. Each unit will have its own alarm system.
In addition, a second swimming pool will be built and the fitness center will be upgraded, complete with a cardio theater.
Also, a new family activity center will be constructed in the back of the complex, which is located off Washington Avenue in the St. Martin community.
The complex was built in 1999. Residents we talked with today say they are ecstatic about the new look that's soon to come into their homes.
Meanwhile, maintenance men at the complex say that with everything new, they'll be able to concentrate more on the little things that need doing on a daily basis.
Doug Walker is covering the story and will have more later today on WLOX News and on WLOX.com.
