Madison, Mississippi has excelled in recent years with Economic Development successes. Now, through the remainder of the decade, the city's primary focus is in two areas – High Tech Jobs and Commercial Development.
High Tech Jobs
Madison has positioned itself well in preparation for leading technology jobs and companies worldwide. With the superior quality of life, a professional workforce, and a highly-educated citizenry, Madison is primed to attract the “best and the brightest.” All of this coupled with attractive sites (160 acres available) minutes from Interstate 55, Madison is ready for the future.
For the past two decades, Madison has been attracting the leading retail establishments throughout the nation. Now home to the finest in fashions, home furnishings, sporting goods, and eateries, the city is still aggressively pursuing businesses in all commercial areas.
“Madison at Main” is a new 17-acre mixed-use development in the “heart” of the city which soon will become the exciting home for City Hall, a Performing Arts Center, five-star restaurants, boutique apparel shops, and numerous other specialty retailers.
The development will also include professional office space and a range of condominiums appealing to everyone from young professionals to retirees.
“Madison at Main”, currently under development by the city, is master-planned
for completion by 2027.
“Madison at Main” is a 17-acre site ideally situated in the heart of Madison. The undeveloped site is the future home of the central business center of the city.
Located at the corner of Main Street and HW 51, the site benefits from one of Madison’s busiest traffic intersections. City Hall will relocate to the mixed-use Development in Spring 2023.
“Madison at Main” is most appealing to high-end retailers; restaurants; and other businesses desiring high visibility.
Located just one mile east of I55, the City of Madison owns one of the most attractive parcels (161.8 acres / 3 combined parcels) ideal for a high-technology park with amenities surrounding the tract. The land is one-half mile from City Hall.
“Madison is attracting the best and the brightest as to professional skills in all areas of new technologies. Because of the City’s vision of years prior, we now have one of the leading southeast locations for companies of this caliber to construct new state-of-the-art facilities,” stated Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler.
Because the City has ownership of the property, working directly with companies is simplified tremendously.
