Our Future Communities Start Here

“The Hayes development will be a tremendous project for the city. With the approved sale, downtown Jackson will experience a major economic impact.” — Scott Fleming, CEO, Jackson Anchor Initiative

The City of Jackson and other stakeholders, including Jackson Anchor Initiative, were connected to the predevelopment assistance partnership and received the support from MEDC to develop a viable restoration vision, promote the site via RFQ, and attract a reputable and able development team to take on the project. "[The League] was great," Fleming said. "[They] helped kick this off and get the project moving." The long-awaited renovations are set to commence in early 2024. Restoration of the Hayes Hotel is a legacy project that will be celebrated for decades to come.
