“The design components will be centered around a common greenspace that will be a social hub for guests, residents, and the Brandon community. The hotel will be uniquely designed to reflect Brandon and Mississippi’s culture, focusing on impactful native Mississippians, inventions and other historical stories that may not be well known to the visiting public. Thrash Group has a history of successful hospitality developments across the US including Hotel Tupelo and the Origin Brand hotels, among others.”

The development will be next to the Brandon Municipal Complex.

“‘The Heights of Brandon’ development will redefine the landscape of this area of Brandon,” Mayor Butch Lee said. “The Thrash Group has created the ultimate destination for both locals and visitors, offering an unparalleled fusion of modern hospitality and small-town charm that we are known for here in Brandon while also contributing to the positive growth of the City of Brandon.”
