Together, we are one. Together, we are strong. Together, we are BankPlus.

Preleasing pumping life into District Lofts complex


Driving past the District at Eastover motorists on Interstate 55 get a two-dimensional picture of the Lofts, which provides a backdrop for the mixed-used project.

But the interior courtyards of The District Lofts cannot be seen from the interstate. They create the depth, “the third dimension,” of the six-story, 261-unit building.

And preleasing, 77 units as of Tuesday, since the first week of March, is pumping life into the complex, said Marc Holcombe, community manager for Arlington Properties, the Birmingham-based owner.

“We’re way ahead of our projections,” Holcombe said.

Completion of the lofts is set for the end of June, Holcombe said.

The luxury apartments are divided into seven categories named for famous musicians.

The one-bedroom units carry the names Hendrix (Jimi), Franklin (Aretha), Davis (Miles), Clapton (Eric) and Parker (Charlie). The two-bedroom apartments are Goodman (Benny) and Ellington (Duke). The three-bedroom apartments, each on a corner with a wraparound balcony, are named for Louis Armstrong. Each unit has a balcony.

BankPlus lends support to women in business

BankPlus recently announced the launch of The Source, an initiative designed to provide Mississippi women in business with access to capital, mentoring support and networking opportunities to succeed in business.

The Source will launch with the goal to loan $50 million from BankPlus to women seeking to start a business, grow a business or for any other business purpose. This investment further demonstrates the bank’s continued commitment to the communities it serves.

“We are extremely excited to launch The Source as a community-wide initiative for all women in business,” said Bill Ray, President and CEO of BankPlus.

“Many of our state’s great businesses were started by women and many of our business leaders are female. We believe that if we can provide critical information to help all women succeed in business, our communities will thrive.”

The Source launches with Mississippi business women on the initiative’s Founding Advisory Panel. Members of The Source Advisory Panel will act as a resource to participants in The Source network.

Home loans through BankPlus?

Has anyone ever taken out a home loan through BankPlus? If so, do you know if they offer any kind of grants or anything like that to use towards putting a down payment on your home?

I don't know BankPlus, but I can tell you this. The type of grant/down payment assistance is not provided by banks/lenders. Typically, this is done by governmental agencies and/or housing non-profits.
