At 30,000 square feet, the new campus will double the size of the Lamar facility, which National College opened in 2006.

is there any likelihood that post #206 and the above increase in audi marketing and product increase in memphis are signs that audi has a big interest in the mega site in haywood county? it would be wonderful news, and perhaps one project that g-man, sparks business school professor, u of m, couldn't put his negative spin on in the region.

Water Taxis for Mud Island & Wolf River Harbor including Bass Pro @ the Pyramid.

Plus, a quick mention of a study of the long awaited major-upgrade of Lamar Avenue to a controlled access highway with 2 -3 major interchanges in southeast Memphis at Holmes Rd, Shelby Dr, etc. before turning into Interstate 22 just past the Holmes Rd & Lamar Ave interchange. Interstate 22 will then intersect with the outer loop Interstate 269 (now under construction).

City, county receive $1.2M in federal transportation grants
Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
According to Dorchelle Spence, director of communications at Riverfront Development Corp., the taxis — small shuttle boats on the water — will run from Beale Street Landing to points along Mud Island, including Mud Island River Park. “The grant allows us to purchase two water taxis, but we may start off with one to see what demand is like,” Spence said. “We do believe the demand is going to warrant two.” An additional possibility, Spence said, is for a docking point at the Pyramid, where Bass Pro Shops is continuing construction. Since the award was just announced, planning for the project has yet to begin.

The second grant, worth $400,000, will be applied to planning and design of reconstruction on U.S. Highway 78 (Interstate 22).

A positive note for education in the Greater Memphis Region and only one of many great things about Oxford, MS. This small city is growing quickly, hosts a great town square and music venues like the Lyric Theatre, Proud Larrys, etc. Also, home of Fat Possum Records and some notable studios used by major artists. This north Mississippi town really has it going on.

I'd imagine this is at least part of the reason for delays with Peabody Suites. Also, the reported price tag on that project has gone from 55 to $75 million. Not to mention, Belz Enterprises publicly stated they were "letting capital rebuild" after the nearly half-Billion dollar expansion of the Peabody Orlando.

The signature Peabody hotel readies for major renovation
Memphis Daily News


Quote:
The editors of TripAdvisor, the world’s largest Internet website devoted to travel, think the South’s Grand Hotel is one of the top 10 “quirkiest lodgings in America.” In recent days, they posted to TripAdvisor a list of 10 properties, including The Peabody, which they say offer travelers “outlandish accommodations and extraordinary experiences.” If the TripAdvisor editors liked what they see now at The Peabody, they’re liable to be even more impressed soon. The hotel is a few months away from a major upgrade, one that’s been in the works for the last few years and the design part of which has been a year in the making. A six-month renovation that will touch all 464 guest rooms gets under way around Nov. 1 and will take about six months to complete. The project, for which the hotel is not releasing a price tag except to refer to it as “expensive”.

Developers seek to obtain James Lee House for bed and breakfast
Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
The development group of James Lee House LLC, led by Jose Velazquez, proposes to turn the historic property at 690 Adams Ave. into a small boutique bed-and-breakfast hotel. Velazquez is the former executive director of Latino Memphis. "Getting the James Lee House developed is one piece of a serious plan to revitalize and return the neighborhood to prominence. On the same street, we’re working to get the Mallory-Neely House and Museum back open, a city treasure that’s been closed for years. And, slowly be surely, word is starting to get around about other neighborhood attractions, like the (Mollie) Fontaine Lounge. Victorian Village is on the way. We’ve got the wind at our backs.”

Memphis ranked 24th best U.S. city for global trade
Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
Global Trade Magazine has ranked Memphis as No. 24 on its “Top 50 Cities for Global Trade.” The rankings are based on export volume, with Memphis regional showing $11.1 billion. Those stats, paired with unique qualities determined by the publication’s editors, led to it naming the city as having the “Best Logistics Infrastructure” in the country. Some of the factors which contributed to this is that Memphis has the second busiest inland port in the U.S., the second-busiest air cargo hub in the world and five Class I railroads. The city also has more than 400 trucking companies and more than 140 foreign-owned companies to bolster its export credentials.

Developers' vision would bring Hotel Chisca back from brink
The Commercial Appeal


Quote:
Like the Chisca, the former Rhodes-Jennings building at Main and Jefferson was slowly disintegrating and seemingly hopeless from a development standpoint, but popularly demanded renovations made it a jewel of Main Street's ongoing renaissance. It has been turned into apartments and re-christened the B. Lowenstein & Sons building, after its earlier incarnation as a department store. The old Illinois Central train station on South Main, though in better repair, also languished vacant for years before the city led a redevelopment. It houses Amtrak, Memphis Area Transit Authority facilities, retail and apartments. Developers who spearheaded One Commerce Square's redevelopment have a contract to buy the Chisca from the Church of God in Christ for $700,000. They propose to spend $20 million to $24 million turning it into 150 to 195 apartments plus street-level retail. The council vote assured the public part of a public-private partnership, clearing the way for developers to secure $17 million to $21 million in private investment. Developers and project advocates at the Downtown Memphis Commission maintained the project would never be economically viable without public incentives, and that the building would otherwise continue to decay and detract from billions in Downtown revitalization, including the $250 million FedExForum three blocks to the east.

West Memphis, AR's Southland Park has really come up in the past few years. Although, I heard when the facility first opened, before Tunica Resorts came to be one of the nation's largest gaming districts, that there was traffic backed up on I-40 from its' exit. I expect the West Memphis - Marion area to do considerably well in the coming years as their state house eyes growth in northwest Mississippi. The area has seen some gains in the manufacturing & tranportation sectors, a largely expanded MidSouth Community College system, double digit growth in Marion, infrastructure upgrades (including interstate highways) and newly announced funding for major intermodal/ river port expansion.

Southland Park completes $11 million renovation

Quote:
Southland Park Gaming & Racing has completed its $11 million renovation, which added more than 200 gaming machines to the facility. The renovations include the addition of the new Shine Blounge, a bar and lounge that includes video poker machines and broadcasts of live sporting events... The facility was last renovated in 2007, when Delaware North invested $40 million to add 600 gaming machines and other amenities to Southland Park.
