Some MEM news.

Allegiant is starting seasonal service in late May to Cincy, Pittsburgh, Palm Beach and...............

Des Moines, IA

Apparently Allegaint is now viewing Memphis as a destination. That hasn't always been the case. It was more focused on sending folks to places from Memphis and selling the add ons and not the other way around. If that is a successful route, this opens up MEM to becoming a base for them especially after the concourse B redo and consolidation gets done in 2021.

My one complaint about this service isn't that it's seasonal but that it starts a bit late to capture all of Memphis in May including the Music Fest and BBQ and misses Elvis Birthday week.

They need to add New Orleans and Knoxville to the mix as well

As a side benefit, successful service from a place like Des Moines could open up Kansas City, Omaha, Cleveland and a whole host of other midwest/western stations for two way leasure travel.

Hey kids let's go to Cleveland for a long weekend, lets see the Rock Hall of Fame we got screwed out of, the NFL Hall of Fame and Cedar Park for some massive coasters.

It could lead to more service from the likes of Southwest to St. Louis and or Indy


This also tells my that Mud Island needs the Aqaurium and the Tivoli Copenhagen treatment I have long pinned for.

Turn Mud Island into America's version of Tivoli complete with a top tier aquarium and Memphis has massive potential as a long weekend getaway spot for families.

New commercial center will rise soon in East Memphis
By Tom Bailey/ The Daily Memphian


Quote:
The one-story, 27,000-square-foot center comprising two buildings on South White Station will likely house six to eight businesses. The 2.6-acre site is north of Poplar, south of Wheelis and on the west side of White Station. The center will replace five single-family houses... The document estimates construction will cost $3.8 million.

Brewery plans to add 155 jobs, make $49M upgrade
By Tom Bailey/ The Daily Memphian


Quote:
Blues City Brewery is one of three contract-brewing facilities operated in the U.S. by La Crosse, Wisconsin-based City Brewing Company. The company is experiencing a high demand for its liquid processing and packaging services, so it is evaluating where to expand capacity. The company’s Memphis facility at 5151 E. Raines Road is 1.3 million square feet and has the capacity to produce more than 60 million cases of beverages a year. Built by Schlitz on 83 acres in 1971, the plant was purchased by City Brewing nine years ago.

Local investor aims to add another 'commercial anchor' to the Edge District


"The mixed-use development, which is in its early stages, would include 616, 608, and 598 Marshall Ave., and 631 Madison Ave. Combined, the properties contain 24,000 square feet of commercial space and cost Halford $825,000, according to real estate website Reonomy.

The project is likely to include storefronts on Marshall Avenue and not much residential space, Halford said, but "all possible uses" are still on the table. He expects construction to begin this year."

"The property is a couple blocks from where Memphis Made Brewing Co. plans to open its second taproom and from the 290 apartments being built on the old Wonder Bread factory site."
