STARKVILLE, MS – Courtesy of the Dispatch

Ground was officially broken at Triangle Crossing in Starkville not long ago. Construction is anticipated to be complete by next Fall, and will include vendors such as ALDI, Marshalls, Ulta Beauty Supply, Five Below, Rack Room Shoes, PetSmart, Sport Clips, and Aspen Dental. It is located at Highway 12 and Industrial Park Road, on the former site of Garan Manufacturing. It is expected to bring in 120 construction jobs to build it, and 200 or more jobs at the stores that will be coming upon completion.

Triangle Crossing is a retail and grocery-based center that will be located on Highway 12 and Industrial Park Road – Tyler B. Jones, Dispatch Staff

“It is a great day for Starkville, Oktibbeha County and our surrounding communities,” developer Mark Castleberry of Castle Properties said. “It has taken many people to get to this day…“In previous groundbreakings, I’ve been proud to make the statement ‘Castle Properties brought $100 million of investments to Mississippi,’” he went on to say. “Later, I was able to say that Castle Properties brought $100 million to the Golden Triangle. Today, I can be proud to state that upon completion of the project, I brought $100 million of investments to Starkville.” He also credits Starkville city government for their invaluable assistance with obtaining funding for the project.

Mayor Lynn Spruill said that “Mr. Castleberry is looking to the future in ways that we all want him to do. . .He has invested in Starkville, and Starkville is our home and a place we are proud of. We are delighted to see people who believe Starkville is a great place to do business.”

Sale of Historic Church Nearly In the Books

COLUMBUS, MS – Courtesy of the Dispatch

First Baptist Church of Columbus began work on its new, larger location on Bluecutt Road in 2009; their old location had been on the market for nearly that long, and is now under contract. It is hoped that the deal can be finalized early next year. The original structure has stood for nearly two hundred years. The complex, which takes up most of a city block, was originally listed for nearly $5 million, but the most recent asking price was shown as $450,000.

“It just went under contract today, so we’re still getting all our ducks in a row,” Joshua Holder, the buyer’s Realtor, said Monday. “The plans are for a multi-functional property that will include single-family housing, office and commercial space. We may keep the day care center open and use the sanctuary as a wedding venue. But at this point, we’re not too far into specifics. It’s such a large property. We’ll be talking to local contractors to come up with ideas about how we can best use the property.”

Among possibilities for the old property, a planned zoning change to Mixed-Use Residential permitting, are things such as single-family dwellings, small-scale office space, and a small number of high-end apartments. 

The church will have the option to lease out the Sanctuary for events: “That gives the church some flexibility as they transition to the new facilities on Bluecutt,” Royce Hudspeth of Rhett Real Estate said, representing the seller. “We know it’s going to be sad for some of our members to make the move, but everyone understands it is for the best.”

“We’ve seen an uptick in interest in our region for last-mile delivery and other logistics projects, so it is not a surprise that FedEx would want to increase their footprint in the Golden Triangle,” said Joe Max Higgins, CEO of the LINK. “We’re happy to continue our partnership with them and look forward to more opportunities for work for our community.”

FedEx says that the new location will replace a smaller extant facility in the area, and will provide both full-time and part-time jobs.

Lighting Up the FORGE Once Again

COLUMBUS, MS – Courtesy of The Dispatch


This coming Wednesday, more than 1,000 area eighth-graders will participate in the FORGE Foundation’s “FORGE Your Path Career Expo” (Family Organizations Recruiting Great Employees) at EMCC’s Communiversity. At this returning event, nearly two dozen local companies that all offer construction-related services will introduce children to the kinds of work they do.

Christee Holbrook of FORGE

FORGE first appeared in 2018, and was the result of a number of local companies coming together in order to help to “…expose young people to opportunities and jobs in the construction industry,” said FORGE President Christee Holbrook, who also leads Graham Roofing in West Point. “No one else was doing it.” They implemented programs where they would offer vocational tech classes at area schools and a summer camp (Camp Amp) which offers children hands-on experience with a variety of professions within construction fields.

“We got a lot of great feedback from the schools and the kids,” Holbrook said. “We had to cancel the expo last year because of COVID, but the best feedback we received came this year when we announced we were going to have the career expo. Within 45 minutes of sending out the email announcing the expo, 95 percent of the spots were taken…“What we are trying to do in bringing these younger students to the career expo is to introduce them to construction jobs before they reach high school,” she went on to say. “When kids get to high school, it’s the time they begin to focus on a career path, either college or the trades.”
