The Biloxi City Council gave its approval Tuesday to Bay Cove, a mixed-use development on the Back Bay.
The community of single-family homes and multi-family condominiums will be built in phases at 1753 Brasher Road, next to Savannah Estates.
The project was divided into four lots, with single-family homes on two lots; a 67-unit condominium complex called Residence at Bay Cove; and a 56-unit, five-story condo known as the Pointe at Bay Cove that juts out into the Bay.
Mike Boudreaux, president of Gulf Coast Investment Developers, said several of the waterfront units already have been sold. The subdivision will have 4 acres of common area that includes a swimming pool, a 36-slip boat pier and green space.
