Uptown development: Group plans $29 million redevelopment of historic Greyhound complex

Quote:
A local development group has plans to transform the old Greyhound complex on North Main Street into a mixed-use development with apartments and 34,000 feet of retail space.

Developers Gabe Velasquez, Susannah Herring and Bill Ganus have joined together to buy the old bus terminal, built in 1937, and the old Schlitz brewery, built in 1902, at 525 N. Main St.

The $29 million project will preserve the buildings and transform the larger structure, the bus terminal, into industrial loft apartments. An adjacent mini-storage unit space will be turned into residential units. Together, there will be about 65 apartments.

A mixed-use development planned for South Main would anchor emerging corridors and offer more housing for a growing Downtown.

Butler Row would span more than 2 acres, including the intersection at East Butler Avenue and B.B. King Boulevard, according to an application filed with the Board of Adjustment.

Billy Orgel, Kevin Woods team to invest $267M in redeveloping 100 N. Main

Good news yesterday as the DMC chose a local developer to take on the challenge of 100 N. Main. They've done a bunch of projects downtown so far and have good history.

Quote:
A development team including Shelby County School Board members Kevin Woods and Billy Orgel will lead the project to revitalize 100 N. Main.

The Downtown Memphis Commission’s staff made its final recommendation to its affiliate Downtown Mobility Authority Wednesday, Jan. 19, selecting 100 North Main Development Partners, which also includes Jay Lindy, Adam Slovis and Michael McLaughlin.

Not super excited about this choice. This scheme doesn't refresh the facade design, it seems* to lack of ground retail/uses on all sides to activate the street, guessing the program mix isnt very innovative, no roof access on the lower apts, and they destroy the existing smaller buildings on main street instead of integrating them like south main.

Not to be negative, its amazing they are moving forward, and the restored tower roof access looks sick. just feels like there were more opportunities from other proposals (biased toward Carlisle and Tower Group's proposals )

Cruise line arrivals push waterfront plans

Looks like the city has big plans for the cruise industry in Memphis. Mayor wants more docking facilities and dam up a section of Wolf River Harbor to create a lake. I think this would be big for the city.

Quote:
The first docking at Memphis for Viking Cruises will be at the end of June — one of six Memphis-to-New Orleans or New Orleans-to-Memphis river cruises this year billed as “Heart of the Delta.”

Three of the eight-day cruises, each with five guided tours, were sold out as of Friday, Jan. 28.

Viking Cruises joins American Queen and American Cruise Lines in the Memphis market, and in the Mississippi River overnight cruise business.

Mayor Jim Strickland is pushing for $26.6 million in funding to expand the boat dock at Beale Street Landing and add another cruise boat landing in Greenbelt Park on the Mississippi River side of Mud Island.

I read an article where one of the developers said that they would likely change it to keep the current 100 year old buildings on Main St. That made me a lot happier. Regarding refreshing the facade, they get historic tax credits for not altering the building too much, so if they modernized it, they wouldn’t receive those.

Shout out for Jackson, TN.

Water park, coming soon: City approves Great Wolf Lodge land sale
Angele Latham/ Jackson Sun


Quote:
The long-awaited Great Wolf Lodge has taken another step toward construction as the Jackson City Council approved a land sale agreement between the City and the Industrial Development Board, clearing the way for the resort to purchase the required land at Tiger Jones Industrial Park.

While the deal is working its way through the system, Conger says the City is working on a development plan, which will involve the other 222 acres contiguous to the land sold to Great Wolf Lodge. “We’re working on a development plan for that area now,” he said. “A master plan. We know we have entertainment options—we’ve got the ballpark, we’ve got the Sportsplex, we’ve now got Great Wolf Lodge—so how can we create a master plan going forward that will complement that area?”

Memphis has plans for a $150-$200 million renovation to Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium, the school announced on Thursday.

The main elements of the renovation will be to transform the west side of the stadium which will include what the Tigers called innovative premium seating options. The project will also create a hospitality experience in the hollow space around the stadium, create family boxes on the north end and party deck patios for students on the south end while potentially repurposing the east side suite tower.
