Gulf Towers In Biloxi To Become Aqua

Pre-storm plans to convert the old Gulf Towers Apartments in Biloxi into condos are still a go, but now a different company will do it.

The Wilton Group of California closed a deal last week with the former owners, also of California, to buy the property. Biloxi developer Mike Boudreaux will handle the permitting, sales and marketing.

Boudreaux says the condos will be called Aqua and each individual unit will look like the stateroom of a yacht. Currently 114 units are planned for the project. Boudreaux says another 20 to 30 could be added.
