It good to see Memphis get back on track of redeveloping its city. This city is rich in history & for some reason, seemed to have gone wayward for a period of several decades. The city leaders need to find a way to get 'civic pride' back. The business community needs to concentrate on many things throughout the city, but downtown needs a complete renaissance. It'll take 2 decades to do that, but it needs to really stay on a progressive path on reinventing itself. I love Memphis & when travelling there over these past decades, I could see the decline, it sadden me, too. So, lets go Memphis, keep up all the progress & some!

Thank you for your comments. Memphis is indeed in the early stages of a renaissance, especially downtown & medical center.

Southland Park Expanding Casino Operations
Memphis Daily News/ AP


Quote:
Southland Park in West Memphis is starting work on a $37 million expansion that will give the greyhound track an expanded casino-style gambling area and a new exterior appearance. Southland President and General Manager Troy Keeping said Friday that the track is in the final stage of negotiating with a branded restaurant and sports bar that will also open at the facility. The name will be announced later. The expansion will add 41,000 square feet to make room for 500 new gaming machines, which will give the facility a capacity for nearly 2,000 games.

Lest we forget. On a couple tour stops with his bands TOOL & A Perfect Circle, Maynard James Keenan, onstage in front of crowds of thousands, mentioned Andy Kaufman's dealings within the Mid-South Coliseum.

The King remembers his antagonistic jester
Memphis Biz Journal


Quote:
Kaufman taunted Memphis, sending videos instructing residents how to use soap, even naming the Bluff City as "the nation's redneck capital." Crowds packed the Mid-South Coliseum hoping to see the comedian get his comeuppance. They weren't disappointed.

The blighted Raleigh Springs Mall is in the early stages of being revitalized
Memphis Flyer


Quote:
The Raleigh Springs Urban Renewal plan, if approved by the Memphis City Council, would turn the lot into a multi-use property with coexisting public and retail space. The plan features a recreational lake and public skate park, as well as a walking trail. It also calls for the relocation of the Raleigh branch library and the Old Allen Road traffic precinct into the property. Both projects have funds set aside for that purpose.

Quote:
Developers of the high-profile One Beale project have put a hotel tower on hold and are focusing instead on plans for an office building that could house six to eight companies.

Carlisle Corp. vice president Chance Carlisle provided an update Monday on the project, saying in an interview that plans are firm for the earlier proposed 30-story apartment tower while the office building's size is still undetermined.

One Beale originally was to include a pair of iconic riverfront high rises housing a luxury hotel and upscale apartments atop a parking garage placed primarily underground, giving the project a commanding presence on the city skyline.

The high cost of that idea led developers late last year to consider spreading out expenses by adding a third high rise for offices. Under the plan Carlisle outlined Monday, designers would shelve the 22-story hotel, put a bigger but less costly garage on a nearby parking lot and hone in on what could turn out to be a six-story office building. It would be the first opened Downtown in about a decade.

Plans for the $100-million-plus project at the foot of Beale Street unfolded as ServiceMaster Global Holdings separately launched a search for a new headquarters campus. Carlisle declined to comment about ServiceMaster and One Beale. The home services company is considering relocating from East Memphis, where it employs about 2,200 workers in four buildings covering about 360,000 square feet, and perhaps moving to another state.
