Mississippi developers and residents, Ted Duckworth, Breck Hines and the late Michael Barranco shared a vision for a mixed-use city center that would infuse Jackson with the most thoughtful design for commercial and residential offerings— where people can gather, live and do business. With a belief their hometown was prime to reemerge, these dreamers decided it was time to act. After years of planning and a lot of faith, The District at Eastover is now home to Jackson MS.
Ted J. Duckworth is Co-Manager of TDLDC, and President and CEO of Duckworth Realty, Inc.

His $16 million renovation of the mixed-use Electric 308 Building in 2005 sparked an interest in downtown development and created an atmosphere of energy in the downtown market.
Ted has coordinated the acquisition of multiple investment properties throughout the southeast totaling over $150 million. The transactions have allowed Duckworth Realty to expand its operations across the region, with projects located in Jackson, Shreveport, Baton Rouge, Mobile, Pensacola, Gulf Breeze and Atlanta.Ted is a recognized leader of economic development in Metro-Jackson.

As a Broker Associate, Breck also provides leasing and third-party brokerage services to select clients across Mississippi, having represented both landlords and tenants in over $250 million of leasing transactions.

Michael Barranco was founder and President of Barranco Architecture, Planning & Interior Design, and was one of the most influential architects in the State of Mississippi in recent years. Grounded in the traditions of European town planning and architectural design, Michael was a leader of the New Urbanist movement, and his mark can be found across Mississippi. The Barranco firm designed many local projects, including governmental, educational, institutional, spiritual, housing, office, hospitality, and town/master planning. While Michael was an incredibly creative architect, he is best remembered by those who had the pleasure of knowing him as a man of honesty, integrity, and character, who placed his faith in Jesus Christ and his love of his family above all other.
