On the heels of the announcement that the Chisca on South Main will finally be redeveloped and spared the wrecking ball comes this. A project so huge it will dwarf the Chisca and completely transform the Crosstown area. Absolutely incredible.

'Founding partners' commit to lease most of Memphis' Sears Crosstown Building
The Commercial Appeal


Quote:
Developers on a mission to revive the long vacant Sears Crosstown Building have commitments from nine prospective tenants called "founding partners" to fill 600,000 square feet of the iconic building with a mix of uses. Chief among those uses is health care, led by the Church Health Center's pledge to move everything it has into the 14-story story tower located at 495 N. Watkins. Four other major Memphis health care firms — Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, ALSAC and The West Clinic — have also committed, executives of the firms told The Commercial Appeal. Those commitments, and several others, mean most of the historic building is spoken for since as much as a one-third of its 1.5 million square feet of total space will be removed during the renovation to create light wells and atriums.

New University of Memphis residence hall approved; will replace Richardson Towers
The Commercial Appeal


Quote:
The state has awarded a contract for a new $53 million, 754-bed residence hall at the University of Memphis that will replace the 40-year-old Richardson Towers when it opens in 2015. Construction of the five-story dormitory is scheduled to start next summer, on the site of an existing parking lot just south of Richardson Towers, U of M spokesman Curt Guenther said Tuesday. After the new, yet unnamed structure opens, the 10-story Richardson Towers will be torn down, he said. Richardson is the largest dorm on the campus, housing just over 1,000 students.

The Med seeks approval to add long-term acute care hospital on its campus
The Commercial Appeal


Quote:
The Regional Medical Center at Memphis plans to acquire a shell company for $350,000 to gain access to its certificate of need. The move, if successful, will allow The Med to build a long-term acute care hospital on its campus... Getting the certificate to build on the hospital's Medical Center campus is important because there is currently a federal moratorium on new long-term acute care hospitals, which is set to expire at the end of this year, and that The Med could use one, said Dr. Reginald Coopwood, chief executive officer of The Med.

Legal barriers keep 16-story Horizon at ground level
Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
The 16-story, 155-unit tower at 717 Riverside Drive is unfinished, a gleaming edifice that watches the Mississippi River flow by. It could remain that way for some time as a protracted legal battle drags on between four banks and various construction firms. In mid-2009, Ridgeland, Miss-based The Bryan Co., doing business locally as Riverside Bluffs LLC, defaulted on a $58.6 million loan from four banks:

I was wondering about this building just weeks ago as I saw its' exterior being updated. Great article.

Venson Center Work Kicks Off Heritage Trail
Memphis Daily News


Quote:
The ambitious $1 billion, 10-year redevelopment project called Triangle Noir during former Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton’s administration is now called Heritage Trail. And the first move beyond the demolition of the Cleaborn Homes public housing development is the exterior renovation of the R.Q. Venson Center high rise at Beale Street and Danny Thomas Boulevard.
http://www.memphisdailynews.com/news...eritage-trail/

Other quotes concerning future development from this comprehensive, quality article by Bill Dries:

Quote:
Beyond that, (Robert) Lipscomb said future plans include an upgrade of nearby Church Park and a walking trail that connects the large group of historical sites in the area around and south of FedExForum. “It’s going to be well lit. It’s going to be a beautiful area. We’re going to redo Church Park. We’re going to redo Clayborn Temple,” Lipscomb said. “We’re going to have a walking trail from the National Civil Rights Museum all the way down here with monuments and points to recognize African-American history.”
Quote:
As Triangle Noir, the effort had more ambitious goals including two proposals for luxury hotels on the south side of Linden Avenue between Fourth and Danny Thomas. The buildings there have been cleared, but private financing for the projects has been more difficult.

Church near Graceland razed, freeing 6 acres for development
The Commercial Appeal


Quote:
The property's value should be enhanced in coming years as the city and state carry out a $43 million project to improve Elvis Presley Boulevard, from Shelby Drive to Brooks Road. Plans are to widen the road, put overhead utilities underground, build landscaped medians, improve or add sidewalks, and add bike lanes, all in an effort to make the three-mile section more appealing and boost economic development. Elvis Presley Enterprises also has plans to add attractions, but they've been put on hold because of the weakened economy. About 31,000 cars a day travel by Graceland, which has averaged 600,000 visitors a year.

Work Moves Forward on Midtown’s Chiwawa
Memphis Daily News


Quote:
Plans are moving forward for Chiwawa, a Southern-inspired Mexican restaurant near Overton Square in Midtown that hopes to open this fall. A $347,257 permit was recently filed for Chiwawa’s renovations of the two-story, 3,196-square-foot building at 2059 Madison Ave. The space housed Chicago Pizza Factory in the 1980s and has been vacant since.

Victory University students fill Flats at Cotton Council
University leases building
The Commercial Appeal


Quote:
Last winter, developers announced a $5 million plan to transform the former National Cotton Council office building into upscale apartments and to market them particularly to students at Midtown colleges. But even as hammers flew, the fast-growing Victory University claimed all the building's 40 rooms and 120 beds for its students, leasing them for three years with an option to renew... In just the past year, Victory University has more than doubled its enrollment, from 906 students to 1,970. That beats the previous record high of 1,200 students in 2006 when the institution was called Crichton College, said Kenneth Kinney, Victory's director of marketing... The 60-year-old neoclassical building has just been listed on the National Register of Historic Places... He and Yandell still plan to build another 60 apartment units behind the existing building. "We wanted to catch our breath and let Victory move in and get settled," Glassell said. "We may crank into that the latter part of this year."
