Mississippi State University will host a groundbreaking ceremony for The Mill at MSU at 3:30 p.m. Thursday at the E.E. Cooley Building.
The Mill at MSU is a $40-million development spread over 10.89 acres that will transform the Cooley Building into a conference center and office complex, establish an adjacent hotel and parking garage and develop mixed-use business parcels on the property. David Shaw, vice president for research and economic development at MSU, said the groundbreaking would bring to fruition a process dating back 10 years. He said that was when Ergon, Inc. first purchased 16.2 acres of property near the Cooley Building, and that property was originally planned as the first phase of a project that included the conference center as its second phase.
