Eight city blocks of previously abandoned buildings, empty lots and X-rated theaters along the eastern border of downtown Memphis now thrive as a desirable urban neighborhood to live, work and play. The Redbirds’ 14,000-seat AAA ballpark anchors the $200,000,000 mixed-use development covering 20 acres. A newly created Fourth Street established a pedestrian-oriented street linking shops and restaurants, five new apartment buildings, a six-story parking garage, and a renovated 1909 YMCA building. SIZE: 20 acres, including an 8-story office building with 750 car parking garage, AAA ballpark, 385 multifamily rental units with parking garage, elementary school, and a minor league baseball museum. The Memphis Ballpark Neighborhood has been featured in numerous publications. Just a few of these include Urban Spaces No. 3, Building Design & Construction, New Urban News, Hartford Courant, USA Today, The New York Times, Developing Sports, Convention, and Performing Arts Centers, Time Magazine, Urban Land, Multifamily Executive, Architectural Record and The Washington Post.

The renovation of the 1913 William R. Moore dry goods building into Toyota Center received the Paul Gruenburg Commercial Rehabilitation Award. This historic eight-story warehouse in downtown Memphis was rehabilitated for use as a 200,000 square foot office building. The exterior of the building was renovated by repointing the brick masonry and using a chemical paint stripper to restore the brick to its original finish. The lower two floors of the exterior were completely restored. Bricked-in window openings on the side facades were reopened and new metal windows to match the profiles of the original wood windows were installed on the upper floors. On the interior, a shiny new granite, stainless steel and mahogany vestibule was constructed.


Echelon at the BallPark/ Fielders Square


First Horizon National Corporate Headquarters, $36,000,000+ in renovations
The exterior and interior renovation of a 1963 Modern office building creates a strong corporate image and fulfilling work environment for First Horizon. The restored 25-story building and adjoining three-story structure create a unified urban presence with exterior details and materials paying homage to the original design. A landscaped roof-top courtyard takes advantage of city views. Sophisticated interiors in keeping with the modern design aesthetic define executive offices on two levels.


Westin Hotel/Beale Street, $30,000,000


Memphis Downtown Marriott Hotel Expansion, $50,000,000

Memphis Grand Central Station


Over $60 million in new developments on Mud Island are completed, making room for 1,000 more residents. Over 3,000 Memphians already reside on the Island that measures just under 1 square mile.

Harbor Town Landing, $14,000,000


The historic Kress Building, home to the first Kress retail business in the nation, has reopened as a 47-suite annex of the Marriott Springhill Suites. The renovated four-story Kress, which was built in 1896, also has five meeting rooms, two board rooms, and ground floor restaurant space that opens onto Main Street and across from the newly renovated Court Square.

Highland Ave./ University of Memphis Area

Founded in 1912, the University of Memphis is a comprehensive metropolitan research university that is recognized nationally and internationally for its academic, research, and athletic programs. With more than 20,000 students, the U of M offers more than 254 areas of study for those seeking bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees. It also offers the juris doctor (law) and education specialist degrees.

Liberty Bowl Stadium Renovation, Phase 1- $5,000,000 (Gate 4 Reconstruction, Expanded Home Locker Rooms, Relocation of Visitor Locker Rooms, Media/ Conference Space, Female Restroom Expansion, American Disability Act Compliance).
Additional Renovation Phases will continue for the next 4 to 5 years.
Capacity: 63,000 seats, Built in 1965 (previous $20,000,000 renovation in1987)

Officials cut the ribbon Wednesday on what they hope will be a bright new future for Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, thanks to a number of upgrades. The locker room renovation cost over 1.8 million dollars, while the gate 4 project cost over 3 million dollars. One of the first things visitors will notice as they walk into the stadium are new ramps designed to make the building more accessible to the disabled.
The disabled will also find that new seating changes will make it easier to see activities on the field. All around the stadium, special care has been taken to make bathrooms more accessible to wheelchairs and other devices.
Meanwhile, in another part of the stadium, there are large meeting rooms that can be used for sports-related interviews or rented out for profit. Fans will also find that the stadium now has listening devices to help folks who need them hear games. And when you visit the Liberty Bowl, be sure to check out the new concession stands and locker rooms.
Officials said plans have already been made to do more renovations in the future.
In December of 1983, city of Memphis officials named the playing surface Rex Dockery Field in honor of the late Tiger coach who was killed in a plane crash.
Included in the 1987 stadium renovation were the addition of the sky-suites located on the east side of the stadium, approximately 12,000 seats in the stands and a stadium club to accommodate donors. In addition, several areas of the stadium were vastly improved, including the lighting system, playing surface, handicap seating area, concession stands and restroom facilities.
The largest crowd to witness a Memphis home football game at the Liberty Bowl was the record-setting 65,885 who attended the Tigers’ stunning upset of No. 6 ranked Tennessee in 1996.

The New University Center @ U of M (U/C)
$50 million, 169,000-square- foot facility includes a 350-seat theater, a ballroom, a post office, the campus's first 24-hour computer lab, a copy center, offices, conference and meeting rooms, a sky-lit atrium and offices for the dean of students, judicial affairs and student organizations.


The Living Learning Complex
The $26 million project will house up to 496 students in “neighborhoods” that will each accommodate 18-22 students.
The buildings are expected to meet LEED Silver Standards in terms of sustainability and “green” design.


Highland Row
Mixed-use retail and residential community to be created adjacent to the University of Memphis campus. Shop, dine, and even live in this fabulous uptown location.

The world’s largest provider of dialysis services has spruced up a tired part of Midtown and introduced some green architecture to the neighborhood. Germany-based Fresenius Medical Care has opened a two-story, 13,460 square-foot dialysis center at 1428 Monroe, at a cost of $2.6 million.
good to see accurate and truthful reports concerning my city. some who post information would have one believe that the big "M" is dying. even though johnny has a comprehensive list, there are other projects planned or underway. 220,000,000 saddlecreek dev including 8 story office tower, 200,000,000+ redevelopment of the fairgrounds in the inner city, 300,000,000 proposed riverbend development in metro memphis tunica county, 3500 acre auto plant development tunica county, the proposed new 1 billion dollar bridge over the mississippi in the memphis metro (probably north memphis), the mega intermodal building location in metro memphis (fayette-shelby county.) to conclude, one overlooked area important to the metropolitan area of memphis is the casino district, its great airport and its economic contribution (2007 figure) 4.6 billion annually. this entertainment location boasts hotels ranging from 31 stories to single level. i have no pictures, but when i locate some, i will post them. for some strange reason, memphis has very few---if any--aerial views of the distant skylines of downtown, robinsonville, east corridor, midtown, etc. it is difficult to find a decent picture that pictures the pyramid to the bluffs to the medical center, st. jude, etc. i have written to some professional photographers as far back as may of this year, yet, i have gotten no replies. perhaps, it has something to do w/ angle, air traffic space, or approach. i have never seen a photo of the downtown skyline pictured from and including the I 240 business corridor. again, johnny, thank you for your extensive update on the bluff city.

Alright, by popular demand...

Southern Memphis MSA (Mississippi)

Baptist Memorial Hospital Desoto, Expansion Tower /Renevation of ER, $175,000,000
The new 11 story tower, which opened Nov. 5, 2006, added 140 beds, bringing the bed total at the Southaven facility to 339. The number makes Baptist-DeSoto (412,000 SF) second in size only to Baptist-Memphis within the Baptist system.


Previous Expansions:
December 2002 was the opening of the Baptist DeSoto Outpatient Diagnostic Center and Women's Center.
In 2001, Baptist DeSoto completed three expansion projects that nearly doubled the size of the hospital and added much-needed services. A new critical care unit opened on Valentine's Day and brought open-heart surgery to DeSoto County for the first time ever. In April, the hospital's labor and delivery services expanded with the opening of the 34,000-square-foot Women's Pavilion. And DeSoto County's first radiation oncology unit, the Baptist Center for Cancer Care-DeSoto, opened in December.

i'm glad to see the rebuilding of the downtown first united methodist church at poplar and second; however, i hope the trinity place proposal will not be dismissed because of the replacement of the church. the presentation plans for trinity place are really beautiful, and it would add a very attractive glass and steel structure to the city's skyline. if it can't go on the proposed methodist property, what about a place on mud island at the harbor. another sensible hotel for the island would be one of those desperately needed larger-roomed hotels that, remarkably, most agree we need for tourists. herenton has plenty of time to learn of prime locations for big businesses---let him lead the way. if it is near the water, i hope the village idiots halbert, warton, warinjure, and bust a nut whal'em will follow to the river and play in the swift side. let carpenter build the boat.

Downtown Memphis Updates

-------------------------------
Historic Renovations on the Mall

Construction has begun on The General Washburn, the $7.8 million renovation of the historic Lawrence building at 60 S Main St into 42 apartments and approximately 5,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Downtown Developers LLC plans to complete work on the project by the end of the year.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

UrbanArt Commission is installing a public art sculpture/pavillion on a plaza at Beale Street Landing. Designed by Chicago-based artist Evan Lewis, the 52-foot tall, concrete and stainless steel structure, which will include wind-powered kinetic parts, will serve as a gateway to the $29.4 million docking facility and park. Installation of the sculpture is scheduled for fall of 2010.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Work is almost complete at Metro67 the 157-unit luxury apartment project at 67 Madison Avenue. The units are available for lease, and the first residents have already moved in. EFO Residential Partners developed the $28 million project along with the $7.5 million renovation of the adjacent garage in the former AutoZone Annex at 60 Madison.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Work continues on Barboro Flats at 100 South Main Street. The $18.1 million project will include 92 apartments, approximately 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and a 215-space public parking garage (owned by the Downtown Parking Authority).The project is scheduled to be completed by September 2010.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

EmergeMemphis has received a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration (EDA). The EDA grant will be used to help finance the $1.5 million expansion and renovation of the fourth floor of the business incubator's offices at 516 Tennessee Street. The renovation will provide space for up to 14 additional early-stage, high-growth companies at the site. Work is scheduled to begin this fall and to be completed in spring 2010.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nearby, design plans have been finalized for the U of M Law School – Confederate Park Public Access project, and work is scheduled to begin later this year. Riverfront Development Corporation (RDC) is coordinating construction of a 10-foot wide, concrete walkway along the top of the bluff behind the new University of Memphis Law School. The walkway will connect across Court Avenue with a pedestrian bridge – 200 feet in length – to Confederate Park. The project will also include an overlook terrace, landscaping, and lighting improvements. Ritchie Smith Associates designed the $1.2 million project, which is scheduled for completion by summer 2010.

In conjunction with the City of Memphis and the Memphis City Council, RDC has also recently completed a walking trail and other public enhancements at Chickasaw Heritage park in the French Fort neighborhood.

Belz's Peabody Suites project put on hold -Ailing luxury hotel segment among reasons for the delay



Memphis Business Journal - by Andy Ashby

Construction at the 160-room Peabody Suites expansion Downtown has been temporarily halted due to a tough lending market, a challenging luxury hotel segment and Belz Enterprises, Inc.’s focus on other projects. “We’ve completed the demolition and are continuing to work through the design and financing,” says Andy Groveman, senior vice president at Belz. Large portions of the former Muvico Theater space have been cleared and the site is ready for redevelopment. Construction could start back up later this year or in early 2010, according to Peabody Hotel general manager Doug Browne.

“I don’t see the economy turning in a big way until we’ve started the next year, at least that’s what hotel analysts say,” he says. In October, there were 38 hotel projects under construction in the Memphis market, according to local consultant Chuck Pinkowski. Now there are eight, including a 127-room Hyatt Place on Winchester and a 131-room Courtyard by Marriott Downtown. “Anything which has been planned is on hold,” Pinkowski says. “If it’s not on hold, it’s been canceled.” Luxury hotels have been especially hard hit, with that segment’s revenues down 38% compared to last year, according to a Smith Travel Research report. Pinkowski attributes some of it to the “AIG phenomenon.” When the federal government bailed out American International Group, Inc., the insurance company used the money to pay bonuses and for meetings in luxury destinations. “They got chastised by the government for doing both of those things,” Pinkowski says. “So the whiplash effect has been other companies which were planning to go to Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton or another fabulous location, canceled their plans or changed their plans to another location.”

The current lending market is another reason. “If you’re trying to borrow $50 million or $60 million, it’s not the best of conditions and the best deal you would want for a project that size,” Browne says. Finally, Peabody Hotel Group, Belz’s hotel company, is halfway through a $450 million-$500 million, 750-room expansion at its Orlando, Fla., hotel. “That’s a huge project and I think that’s taken a lot of focus,” Browne says.

Governor announces approval for solar ‘farm’
By Richard Locker (Contact), Memphis Commercial Appeal
Tuesday, September 15, 2009



Tennessee won federal approval Tuesday for a $62.5 million economic stimulus grant for a solar power demonstration farm in Haywood County and solar research institute at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

Gov. Phil Bredesen announced the U.S. Department of Energy's approval at his annual economic conference. The next step is an environmental assessment of the roughly 20-acre site alongside Interstate 40 in southwestern Haywood County, about 40 miles northeast of Memphis. That's where the state plans to erect 22,300 solar panels.

The money will be divided between the two components of the "Volunteer State Solar Initiative," which Bredesen hopes will position Tennessee as a center for clean-energy research, development and manufacturing, and a magnet for nonenergy companies that want to jump on the green-energy bandwagon.

Bredesen said he envisions the farm as a "test bed and showcase" for solar power products and also encouraging other manufacturers who want to emphasize their "commitment to environmental stewardship" to locate in a 1,500-acre West Tennessee industrial "megasite" the state is planning adjacent to the solar farm.

State panel approves purchase of land for Haywood megasite
By Richard Locker (Contact), Memphis Commercial Appeal
Tuesday, September 29, 2009



After two hours of testimony by proponents and opponents, the State Building Commission on Tuesday approved the $40 million purchase of 3,836 acres of farmland in southwestern Haywood County for the West Tennessee industrial "megasite."

State and local officials hope to use the site between Interstate 40 and U.S. 70 about 40 miles northeast of Memphis as a red carpet for a large, job-creating industrial or business development similar to those under way at Tennessee's two other TVA-certified megasites: the Volkswagen automobile plant in Chattanooga and the Hemlock Semiconductor Corp. plant in Clarksville.Each is a $1 billion investment and promises to create thousands of jobs in its area.

Mid-South has 'bioeconomy' potential
By Toby Sells
Thursday, August 27, 2009



A shift to a "bioeconomy" could bring 25,000 jobs in 10 years and $8 billion annually to the Mid-South, according to a new study commissioned by the Memphis Bioworks Foundation. The study was conducted by Battelle Technology Partnership Practice, the same group that concluded in 2003 that Memphis could be a biomedical hub.

The economic development group now claims that Memphis and the 98-county region around it have the potential to be a leader in producing bio-based products, which are crop-based chemicals, fuels and natural alternatives to petroleum-based plastics.

The Battelle study is a snapshot of the current agricultural, transportation and industrial assets of the region that hugs both banks of the Mississippi River in Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri and Kentucky. The assets include 36 million acres of crop production space and a diversity of crops from corn and cotton to rice and hardwood trees.

Also, the rich farmland of the Mississippi Delta gives the region a strategic advantage in a burgeoning bioeconomy, said Bioworks president Steve Bares.

"You just can't grow biomass in Arizona," Bares said. "You have to go to place where it's a natural asset and we do."

The study also concludes the region has the industrial, chemical and logistics infrastructure needed to convert crops to products and get them to the marketplace.

Carolyn Hardy, president and CEO of Memphis-based Hardy Bottling Co., said her beverage manufacturing plant has several hundred fermentation tanks that could be used in the process to produce biofuels.

"We have a very expensive asset that's not being utilized for its intended purpose," Hardy said.

The study claims the region could produce 4.7 billion gallons of ethanol per year from crops such as switchgrass. Ethanol sold for $1.65 per gallon in July, which would make ethanol production in the region alone worth $7.75 billion.

Thomas F. "Bud" Hughes, a partner in Verdant Partners LLC and chairman of Agricenter International, said agriculture is now in a state of flux as crop choices are impacted by new technology and the ongoing energy debate, which is affectedd by people's changing views on the environment. A bioeconomy would give farmers and those in industry a new alternative.

"There are a lot of unanswered questions about the bioeconomy plan, but there is a lot of potential and promise," Hughes said. "But a lot of it is in the formative stages."

Memphis Bioworks Foundation

Impact: "Bioeconomy" could bring 25,000 jobs, $8 billion to region in 10 years

Focus: Turning crops into chemicals, fuels and plastic products

Asset: Bioeconomy region would have 36 million arable acres

NuCO2 set to build its new facility in Memphis

NuCO2, which provides certified carbon dioxide and other gas solutions for the food service and hospitality industries, has selected Memphis as the location of its new national refurbishment facility.

"The centralized location will enable us to more quickly complete the refurbishment process and deploy the tanks back into the field."
