RIDGELAND — City officials gave a thumbs up on renderings Tuesday evening of a proposed office building in a development off of the Highland Colony Parkway.

Community Development Director Alan Hart said that the developers were asking for approval of the design of the Bell Building so that they could put the rendering on a leasing sign.

The item was approved unanimously on the consent agenda.

Hart said that the cupola of the building may need “adjustments in the final design,” and could require a height variance when developers are prepared to proceed with construction.

Hart said that the developers have not applied for a variance at this time.

The Architectural Review Board unanimously approved the item at the last ARB meeting.

The building is being designed by Dean and Dean Architects and is set for a lot in the Quorum development at the corner of the Highland Colony Parkway and Steed Road with the Trustmark Bank across from the Renaissance at Colony Park.

Quorum’s 11.6-acre campus is subdivided into individual lots to accommodate residential style, one-story and two-story buildings. 

The Bell building is slated for construction at “lot 1”, according to ARB minutes. It touts proximity to I-55 and the Natchez Trace.

The Bell building will join 400 West Parkway Place, a current office building that calls the Quorum home.
