Gaining Altitude
City to showcase airport, other transportation assets to world
Memphis Daily News


The April 11-13 gathering in Memphis includes a “state of the aerotropolis concept” address by John D. Kasarda, who coined the phrase, and a master class by Kasarda. It will also feature a joint discussion by FedEx Corp. founder Fred Smith and Delta Air Lines Inc. CEO Richard Anderson. The week after the conference, April 18, airport officials will formally open the new Federal Aviation Administration air control center and tower. At 336 feet tall, it will be the third tallest tower in the Southeast.

Study looks at options for third bridge over the Mississippi River.
Memphis Flyer


The plans — jointly developed by TDOT, the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department, the Mississippi Department of Transportation, the Memphis and West Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and the Federal Highway Administration — offer seven two-mile-wide corridors where a new earthquake-proof bridge and connecting highway could be built.

Under-construction, Opening Summer 2011

MATA South Intermodal Terminal

http://www.matatransit.com/innerContent.aspx?id=1104

The South Intermodal Terminal will be a major focal point for local transit services in the Whitehaven area and improve MATA's ability to make efficient connections to intercity bus services. A future use would be a station on the Downtown-Airport light rail line. MATA will own and operate the terminal. Greyhound Lines Inc. will be the major tenant.

The terminal will be constructed on about nine acres of property on the northwest corner of the intersection of Airways Blvd. and Brooks Road. The site has been cleared to make way for a new, state of the art terminal. To demonstrate its commitment to environmentally responsible “green building”, MATA is pursuing LEED certification for the project.

The following functions will be accommodated:

A. Bus Transit Center.
B. Greyhound Terminal
C. Taxi Stand
D. Parking
E. Police Substation
F. Future Light Rail Passenger Station

A Cool, Green Playground at Shelby Farms
The Memphis Flyer


Woodland Discovery Playground consists of five separate play areas or "nests" connected by a serpentine path under an arbor that will eventually be covered with native vines. Designed by landscape architect and urban designer James Corner and his firm james corner field operations, the playground features slides, swings, climbing ropes, and other equipment on a soft surface of recycled Nike sneakers. It is supposed to put more fun and some "risk" back into playgrounds while keeping them safe.

isn't the 51 and frayser preparation the one that is already laid down for the preparation of a third bridge? to me, seems to be too many options for residents. considering the history and length of such projects and their completion dates, hopefully most of us will have enough of our minds left to realize that we are being pushed across one of the bike lanes in our wheel-chairs or hospital beds--- no doubt, a little rascal for those who have a little more money. i hope it goes in north memphis. it is good to see north and north
east shelby county begin to finish up the use of the approximate 3% of land left in that area. it is good to see memphis leading in so many areas from insdustry, manufacturing, aviation, in national leadership, the arts and humanities, various music genre, television, broadway, food, as well as other forms of entertainment. we are fortunate to have such a great city in this state.

even though the photo of a section of downtown facing west in missing several prominent buildings, i think this is really a great photo of memphis. it really showcases lebonheur well, as it does several other buildings. the new retail retail or clinics will be in part of the new legends neighborhood, will it not. really pretty color, especially of the sky. again, wonderful job.

The boyhood home of Johnny Cash, just outside of Memphis in Dyess, AR will be restored along with a New Deal administration building into a Johnny Cash museum.

Arkansas State University, community partners to inaugurate Johnny Cash Music Festival August 4 at Convocation Center
ASU Communication


Quote:
The Cash family is working with Arkansas State University to develop an annual Johnny Cash Music Festival, with proceeds each year going to restoration of the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home and the establishment of a museum. The university recently acquired the original Cash homeplace in Dyess and plans to restore the structure. The university also plans the establishment of the Johnny Cash Boyhood Museum in the New Deal Era Administration Building at Dyess.
http://www.astate.edu/a/asunews/arti...d-8884c8ffa4fa

Quote:
“When we finally got to Dyess, the truck couldn’t get up the dirt road to our house, so Daddy had to carry me on his back the last hundred yards through the thick black Arkansas mud—gumbo, we called it. And that’s where I was when I saw the Promised Land: a brand new house with two big bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, a front porch and a back porch, an outside toilet, a barn, a chicken house, and a smokehouse. To me, luxuries untold. There was no running water, of course, and no electricity; none of us even dreamed of miracles like that.”
--Johnny Cash, Cash: The Autobiography, with Patrick Carr, 1997

Very cool roundup from archdaily.com

Architecture City Guide: Memphis

Quote:
This week our Architecture City Guide is heading to Memphis. Called the Bluff City, Memphis is the birthplace of Rock-n-Roll, Elvis, and the Blues. Along with the lively music scene, Memphis offers an architectural landscape that tells its history and speaks to its future. With the help of a Memphis local, Sophorn McRae, we selected twelve contemporary buildings that should not be missed when you visit the Bluff City. Limited to twelve, we could hardly include all the locals’ favorites.

Flag returns to its 440-foot perch in East Memphis

The crowning symbol in East Memphis returned to its 440-foot perch above the Poplar Corridor Thursday morning. A three-man crew strained with the rigging to re-raise the large U.S. flag that has been a fixture for 40 years atop Clark Tower. On a clear day Gold Strike Casino is visible 46 miles away in Tunica.

jr, has the new control terminal at memphis inter been officially opened? when i saw your note concerning seeing it in the distance in the pictures you had taken, i happened to be at some location on wolf river bvld or walnut grove rd, and i think i got a glimpse of it. surprised at that ht you really can't see more of it. it would be nice to be lit nightly. one thing for sure, it makes the 150+ ft terminal look a bit puny. lol, before this, i was actually under the impression one would be able to see the 32-story goldstrike and the 27-story casino. i bet, along about now, some of these companies has wished they has built 30 to 40 approach levels, and then building a docking system under them. oh well.

one other comment about the post concerning the modernist buildings that were selected by the archi group. there were two that i just didn't see any real redeeming or interesting value in them, as works of good architect, however, even though i am a lover of post world war buildings---old victorians,
art deco, regency (my favorite), georgian, and others, i'll have to say that i really do like the abstract church and what i consider to be the annunciation of gabriel, which may not be at all what the builder intended. i also really liked the building that seemed to feature the diffusion of light---it may be a care show room. nevertheless, i thought it was surprisingly good and informative. thanks jr. btw, you may not keep up w/ the construction of 1st church, methodist, downtown, but any news on the finishing date. i sure hated to see that burn, especially that huge spire, but i like the french/normandy design, which rests so far above the street. if my designs are incorrect, feel free to correct. i forgot who is doing the work---may be carter hord or the shipp firm, if they are still doing that kind of work. i hated what they did to calvary. i always, for the most part, given most episcopalians credit for having better taste.

it would be nice to see first baptist, poplar, and 2nd presbyterian on highland set on the corner of danny thomas and poplar, and 2nd presbyterian across from trinity lutheran. i think it would be wonderful to be a certified city planning officer. i'm sure i could show as much skill as shown by those who have worked their magic, in avarious parts of the city.

Norfolk Southern's $105M intermodal yard outside Memphis officially under construction
Memphis Biz Journal


Quote:
The overall project, which will take 10 to 12 years to develop, is privately financed. More than 1,600 acres of the project is set aside for industrial development. Adair’s development team is doing the dirt work for the intermodal facility, which will be sunk 28 feet below grade to reduce noise and light pollution.

The intermodal facility is also the first step in the larger Piperton Hills development. The Adair family, operating as Piperton Hills Development LLC and WC Adair Development LLC, are planning the mixed-use project on a 3,100-acre site which spans parts of Fayette County in Tennessee and Marshall County in Mississippi.

This $600 million project, the single largest of its' kind ever in the State Of Mississippi, is to be completed in 2014.

Groundbreaking For Interstate 269 In North MIssissippi
wreg.com


Quote:
Mike Tagert is the Northern District Mississippi Transportation Commissioner. Tagert said, "The I-269 groundbreaking is a monumental occasion. It's going to lead to tremendous opportunities, not only for safe transit, but also being able to attract new prospects in our state." Interstate 269, as it will be called, will eventually form a 30 mile eastern bypass around Memphis through Tennessee and Mississippi. The loop will relieve congestion on the I-69/I-55 Corridor and connect Interstate 40 and Interstate 55 through north Mississippi.
