TUPELO – Downtown Tupelo’s Fairpark District has two new tenants.

First National Bank of Oxford and television station WCBI-TV will move into the Fairpark at Main building next month, according to Tommy Morgan, who is the real estate agent for the building.

The building opened in fall 2007 and currently is home to The Fairpark Grill and Park Heights. Both restaurants are owned by the Columbus-based Eat With Us group, which also owns the building.

First National and WCBI soon will move into office space on the second floor on the east side of the breezeway, Morgan said.

The Fairpark office will be First National’s debut in the Tupelo market. WCBI-TV currently has a location on South Gloster, but Morgan said the TV station will close that office when it moves into Fairpark.

With the new tenants, office space remains for about two or three tenants on the second floor of the Fairpark at Main development. No tenants have signed on yet for the three retail spaces on the ground floor between the restaurants.
