‘South Main’s Got It’
Arts district thrives despite ever-changing landscape
STACEY WIEDOWER | Special to The Daily News


The South Main Historic Arts District could be viewed as a microcosm of all of Downtown. In decades past, it experienced a heyday and a dramatic decline. In recent years, it’s made a slow but thorough comeback.

http://memphisdailynews.com/editoria....aspx?id=52408

Photos: Lance Murphey


The South Main Historic Arts District has its share of art, but now the district is evolving into a more complete neighborhood with boutiques and restaurants.


Part of the charm of the South Main Historic Arts District is the storefronts filled with everything from art to clothing to coffee.

Memphis medical district hotel to get complete facelift in $33.8M project
By Wayne Risher
Memphis Commercial Appeal


Memphis Bioworks Foundation officials hope to transform the old Medical Center Holiday Inn into a 167-room extended-stay hotel with a fresh new look in two years. Thursday's announcement of a $2 million federal grant was hailed as a taxpayer-funded stimulus for the $33.8 million project that will create 126 permanent jobs.

Animal Kingdom
Memphis Zoo builds on recent success by preparing for future growth
STACEY WIEDOWER | Special to The Memphis News


This time last year, the opening of the Teton Trek exhibit at the Memphis Zoo marked the latest step in an aggressive expansion plan that has placed the zoo No. 4 on the list of most-visited attractions in Tennessee and No. 1 in the Mid-South.

http://memphisdailynews.com/editoria....aspx?id=53247

Grizzly bears are the main attraction at the Memphis Zoo's Teton Trek, which features a lodge inspired by the Old Faithful Inn in Wyoming's Yellowstone National Park. The exhibit houses grizzlies, elk, wolves and ducks, all part of Yellowstone's ecosystem. Teton Trek turns 1 this month, and the zoo has plenty of other successes to celebrate.






The Zambezi River Hippo Camp is a $16 million project that Memphis Zoo leaders hope to begin building in the next two years. The exhibit, which will house the zoo's hippos, was designed to replicate life on a sandbar along Africa's Zambezi River.

From the Wall Street Journal (applause)

After 181 Years, Local Beer Stops Playing Hard to Get
By DAVID KESMODEL


Now, the fifth-generation brewing scion and sole owner is poised to make his riskiest move yet to expand the nation's oldest beer maker. Yuengling (pronounced ying-ling) announced last week that it signed a letter of intent to buy a former Coors brewery in Memphis, Tenn. The facility would be the Pennsylvania brewer's largest and could more than double the company's overall capacity and allow it to expand distribution into multiple states beyond its 13-state footprint in the Eastern U.S.

Shelby Farms - October 10, 2010: The sun sets over Beaver Lake and Patriot Lake, a pair of Shelby Farms' larger lakes. Shelby farms has over 20 bodies of water, but years of under-funding at the park has led to a degrading of the system of sloughs that connected many of the lakes. The smaller ponds have suffered from lower water levels as a result.

The CA2 building used the foundation walls of the old Court Annex and the 124-year-old Lowenstein Building as a fourth wall as part of its design that achieved the city's first gold-level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification.

When the original timeline was to "break ground" by the end of this year, the opening date was late 2011. Obviously, that's not going to happen, but Bass Pro has a reputation of near-explosive construction when they start on their end. I believe Mayor AC Wharton was quoted as saying mid-late 2012.
