The Renasant Center for IDEAs

Tupelo, MS

Project Description

JBHM’s design of this facility required careful attention and planning in order to meet the needs of this state-of-the-art facility. The functional requirements housed within this structure needed to respect and harmonize with the historical character of other adjacent buildings in downtown Tupelo’s historic district.
The facility is a 31,600 square foot facility to incubate new developing businesses in the City of Tupelo. It is to encourage new businesses and provides common facilities, such as, lobby, conference rooms, break rooms, internet access, and a kitchen. The incubator is part of the gateway into the heart of Tupelo.

The CDF incubator - more than any project announced to date - has the greatest potential to change the face of Main Street.
