Mammogram and colon screenings are down massively. We'll be able to post renderings of new cancer centers soon. I'm not being sarcastic.

The nine-level building would rise in the surface parking lot across Beale Street from the Orpheum Theatre, providing 1,400 spaces, a rooftop restaurant, showers, lockers and storage for cyclists, accommodations for other travel connections like rideshare and scooters, and even a monumental staircase designed to be worthy of selfie photographs.

Renderings unveiled for Nylon Net Building’s replacement
Chance Carlisle continues developing the South Main bluff.


Sad to see the Nylon Nets building go, but the challenges of reusing this building are enormous. They stick pretty close to the original design. I think they are even reusing the bricks.

Redesigned hotel would rise over Beale’s east end, renderings show

This from a few days ago. Nothing really special here IMO but will be a nice infill on Beale St. and could work well with the Union Row development.


Developers have unveiled new renderings for a six-story hotel occupying an important corner for Memphis: Beale at Fourth.

Developer Nick Patel of Knoxville, owner of Turkey Creek Hospitality, submitted the plans for a 145-room hotel at 380 Beale, which is the now-vacant northeast corner with Fourth.

No name for the boutique hotel has been chosen, Patel said Thursday night, even though one rendering includes a sign stating “The Beale.” Patel said that was a placeholder name.

U of M unveils design of $41 million Herff STEM Research building

It will include space for researchers from computer science and the College of Arts and Sciences, allowing them to collaborate.

“For engineering, all facilities we have were completed 50 years ago,” said Rick Sweigard, dean of the Herff College. “At that time, we really weren’t doing much research. This was pretty much an instructional institution.

They are missing an important element in my book...
An Indoor Waterpark element to help with Sept to June.

They are at least 3.5 million at 3hrs or less drive to this. It stands a chance. 5 hours gets Nashville and Birmingham involved, even St. Louis.

Now if the Mayor of Memphis could get to Copenhagen and check out Tivoli Park and make that connection to what Mud Island could be.

An Aquarium

Revamped Museum complete with flying theater trip of the Mississippi from the headwaters to the Gulf.

Revamped Riverwalk with addition botanical features.

Revamped Amp with architecturally significant cover without obstructing skyline view.


A modest in number but high quality selection of rides that maximizes the space, like Tivoli.

A relocation of the the marina to maximize space on the Island.

Land bridge connecting Beale Street Landing to the southern end of the Island.

Weekend fireworks throughout the summer.

A winter operating program consisting of lighting, decor, skating rink, a European style winter market that lines the Riverwalk and a centerpiece Lighted Christmas tree at the Gulf that does a light show set to music.

Some developments for Downtown.

Viking is actually finally starting river cruising. The Two existing companies have more starts and stops planned for Memphis. 2023 is looking to be stellar with an insane amount of cruise visitors compared to past years.
