Lincoln Garden Apartments reopen

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

What was once one of Jackson's worst apartment complexes for crime and drugs, has been completely renovated, and made into a very nice facility.

It's the Lincoln Garden Apartments at 4125 Sunset Drive in northwest Jackson, just off Medgar Evers Boulevard.

Jason Spellings, Vice President of Southeastern Operations for the Wishcamper Companies, Incorporated, said it cost more than $10 million to transform the property from it's run down state, with less than 50% of the apartments rented, to one with 100% occupancy.

$2.5 million in federal stimulus funds were used for the reworking of the complex.

Some apartments in the new Lincoln Gardens have marble cabinet tops.
