On the Northshore lie the ever expanding bedroom communities of Covington, Mandeville, Slidell among others. These communities provide easy drive times to both NASA facilities, the Gulf Coast, Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

Lakeshore Towers, (2) 26 floor buildings on Lake Pontchartrain near Slidell.



The Northshore Marina Tower, 23 story on Lake Pontchartrain near Slidell

To the east along the Gulf Coast are several new projects.

The $500 million 12 acre Bacaran Bay Casino project in Biloxi includes a 21 floor condominium tower, 75,000 square feet casino, 70,000 square feet of convention space, 655 hotel rooms, a 6 screen movie theater, 7 restaurants, a Blues club, Spa, Bowling alley, 2 wedding chapels, a 18 hole golf course designed by Arnold Palmer and a Dog hotel-



Another project that received variance recommendations from the commission is the Villas at Ocean Beach Condominiums just east of a previously approved project by a similar name at the site of the old Hilton Hotel in West Biloxi.



A third casino project that received variance recommendations is the Sterling Beach Condominiums, a 16-story development on the south side of U.S. 90 that would go on the former site of the Biloxi Beach Amusement Park and Magic Golf.
