Kroger’s Union store has come along a ways since neighbors saw first drawings months ago. The latest changes include altering the building’s colors, breaking up some of its walls with materials and design elements and softening the parking lot with more landscaping. Joe Bell, manager of marketing and public affairs with Kroger’s Delta Division, said the changes were well-recieved at a neighborhood meeting last night, even eliciting some applause.

I think this looks like a winner. Have Kirby-Whitten Pkwy diverted through the fields around the western edge of the park. I completely understood the fight not to have K-W just go right through the heart & recreational areas of Shelby Farms, but I don't see the city, county & state being able to put this off any longer. The traffic delays in this area are becoming absolutely abysmal.

The four-lane parkway will connect Walnut Grove Road to Kirby-Whitten Road. Recreational paths for bikers and walkers will also be connected to the new parkway. Construction is proposed to begin in 2017. The cost of the $20 million project will be shared by the federal government and city of Memphis.

A grand atrium connects the campus’ distinctive 11-story tower with the renovated classroom spaces and adds about 23,000 square feet of space behind the tower... The last previous building project at the school was the construction of a 60,000-square-foot optometry clinic (the largest in the world) in 2002... Southern College of Optometry formed in 1932 and today is one of only 21 optometry schools in the U.S. The school’s current enrollment is 508 students, its highest total in 30 years.

TDOT has awarded its single largest-ever contract for completion of the massive East Memphis 4-stack interchange. Construction should take nearly 4 years, but luckily coincides with the completion of the 385 segment of the I-269 outer loop which will take off some pressure. Although a large piece of the puzzle, this is only 1 of several major interstate highway projects that will see metro Memphis move to the front of the pack when considering interstate expressway systems. To this day I still don't think a lot of people realize how large it's becoming, nor do they realize how large the contiguous urban street grid & its "throughput" are. Not to mention, the most numerous amount of highways that interact with it of any city in the country & beyond.

TDOT awards $109.3 million contract to finish I-40-240 interchange in East Memphis
The Commercial Appeal


Quote:
The new project features the construction of an approximately 70-foot-high flyover ramp that will extend from the I-40-240 loop to eastbound I-40, creating West Tennessee’s first four-level interchange. It also will include completion of the now-deadend ramp leading from westbound I-40 onto the I-40 north loop and the replacement of the I-40 bridge over the Wolf River... To help some motorists avoid the construction zone, TDOT has timed start of work to coincide with the November completion of the last segment of Tenn. 385 between Macon and Tenn. 57 in Collierville.

Rael Development Corp. doubles down on University Of Memphis luxury apartments with possibly more in the pipeline.

California firm planning new University of Memphis apartments
Memphis Biz Journal


Quote:
A California development firm is planning its second apartment property near the University of Memphis. Newport Beach, Calif.-based Rael Development Corp. is accumulating land and had its initial plans approved for a four-story, 64-unit apartment project on the southeast corner of Southern and Brister... The four-story project will have 264 beds, a center courtyard with pool, a study lounge and computer center, a theater and a fitness room... The second apartment project has not been named yet, but will be a variation of the Gather brand... Rael Development Corp. might not be done in the Memphis market.
http://www.bizjournals.com/memphis/n...nning-new.html

I found this full color rendering of the current building under construction on the MM website. The MBJ article seems to imply that it will look similar as a "variation of the Gather brand".
