BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Demolition work is underway to turn a former retirement home into a luxury hotel in Biloxi. The Santa Maria Del Mar tower in downtown Biloxi is undergoing the transformation.

The Barrington Group purchased the building and plans to make it a 160-room hotel. Construction crews are busy gutting the interior of the building, which has been shuttered since Hurricane Katrina ten years ago.

The company turning the 13-story tower into a new hotel is the same development group which renovated and re-opened the White House Hotel in Biloxi.
