After six years of operation, the Renasant Center for IDEAs was running out of room.
The business incubator for Tupelo and Lee County, however, was designed to accommodate more clients. And so, two months ago, it began a $125,000 renovation that added a new meeting room and nine new office spaces.The facility now has 27 offices.
Officials celebrated the completion of the project today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a tour.
Actually, the space isn’t really “new.” It was flex space on the second floor that Toyota Motor Manufacturing Mississippi used while its plant was being built in Blue Springs.
No exterior work was done on the Renasant Center; all renovation was done on the interior of the facility.
