MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - You might have noticed more activity outside the Threefoot Building Thursday. Workers are getting the building ready so the main part of construction can begin.
The floors have been gutted. The asbestos has been removed, but there is still a lot more work to be done.
Mayor Percy Bland says he's very happy with the progress made so far and is looking forward to future developments.
"We are very proud of where we are right now. This is really big for our city," said Bland. "It's just like any part of a major deal, the final piece of financing that everyone is taking care of, everyone is paying. Mr. Tampa can now move forward with the things he promised us."
The finished project is expected to have a bar and restaurant on one of the top floors.
