I feel like if they cut down some trees in the parking lot for visibility and at least renovate the outside of the mall then more business would come along with new tenants, but that's just my opinion. The mall isn't that bad but it isn't that good compared too Carraige crossing, saddle Creek, Tanger Outlets etc. but if the owners invest money to keep up with the surrounding areas then the mall for sure would be much better and attract more people then it currently does.
I was in there recently, the H&M is going to take up a quarter of the space on the upper level and a big on the lower level. You all seem to have forgot to mention Oak Court getting that.
Certainly will be an eclectic mix of seemingly local businesses. The odd duck is still the Banana Republic. Wonder if H&M will shift other national retailers like Hot Topic back into the mix. With what you see across the street with the old Sears redevelopment and mix of shops in Laurelwood. Also, nearby Eastgate is getting a major redo.

With the H&M the mall will have a new mix, but in my opinion it rly isn't a permanent fix. The mall needs a more upscale vibe on the outside or a nice mix used setting like DRG901 said, if they want to keep gaining stores and shoppers. Some nice apartments or condos would rly be nice in East Memphis and it would help the mall compete with other areas.

Here's the deal with frieght. Amazon has in listed folks like Atlas to get their air cargo side going. They are basically contracting it out. Lots of chatter that they will place an order for their own planes but it seems that Fed Ex and UPS could tie up the duopoly of Boeing and Airbuses slots. I thought when the DC so close to the airport was announced that you'd see more of their contracted flying into MEM. The Lebanon TN DC is a good 30 miles from BNA to put it in perspective. This purchase screams a trucking terminal.

I think this is the first new gaming option for Greater Memphis since the State of Arkansas legalized video slots, table & roulette games at the reenergized & expanded Southland Park dog-racing track in West Memphis.

This week, the developer behind The Lake District finished buying the properties it needs for the project's prospective footprint in Lakeland, off of at I-40 at Canada Road. More than 132 acres of the planned 160-acre lifestyle community were acquired in this newest deal.
The project seems to be progressing fine especially with the Malco, and grocer

Here is the latest on plans for a new boutique hotel at Overton Square along Cooper at what is currently a surface parking lot.

New details revealed for Overton Square hotel, including brand, possible name
By Jacob Steimer – Reporter, Memphis Business Journal

https://www.bizjournals.com/memphis/...are-hotel.html

Quote:
Construction on the project is scheduled to begin by November, making way for the hotel to open in the first quarter of 2020, according to a release from Loeb.

The 109-room hotel will be part of Marriott International Inc.'s Tribute Portfolio, the release said. Tribute Portfolio hotels are designed to be bold and completely unique, according to the hospitality giant's website.

The Overton Square hotel is being designed to "match the Square’s unique architectural style with high-end finishes that incorporate local historic imagery," the release noted.

One rendering of the hotel places the name "The Memphian" on its back awning, hinting that the name will likely be chosen for the hotel. On July 5, 2018, Loeb also filed for a trademark for "The Memphian."

Loeb Presents Renderings of New Hotel Proposed for Overton Square
Memphis Daily News

https://www.memphisdailynews.com/new...verton-square/

Quote:
The yet-to-be-named hotel will rise on 1.3 acres and fill much of the surface parking lot at the northeast corner of Cooper and Trimble. The hotel will be immediately north of Hattiloo Theatre.

The hotel is designed in part to support the live performance venues of Overton Square, including Playhouse on the Square, Circuit Playhouse, Hattiloo Theatre and Ballet Memphis, and accommodate visitors from 250 miles away.

The hotel will offer both rooftop and ground-floor food and beverage service, including patio tables along the Cooper and Trimble sidewalks.

The building’s design strives to complement Overton Squares architectural styles, according to a Loeb Properties statement.

Like all but the stark white.

Would be a good template for expanding Beale eastward and Pinch redo but with Apts and condos.

I'm not feeling this one at all. I understand paying tribute to OS's architecture. But OS's architecture works because of its charm and history. Trying to recreate that in 2018 just looks messy and inconsistent. The upper half looks like a cookie-cutter apartment building, and the bottom half looks incredibly disjointed. I much preferred the original hotel that was proposed at Madison and Cooper a few years ago.

Colonial Country Club Submits Request for Redevelopment of a Larger Tract
The Daily News


https://www.memphisdailynews.com/new...-larger-tract/


"The planned redevelopment of Colonial Country Club in Cordova has taken a major turn, including a new, deep-pocketed development partnership planning to add acreage, a mix of retail, restaurants, offices and full-service hotel.

The developers estimate they will spend $300 million, including $75 million in the first phase alone."

"The newest plan calls for 540 single-family residences on more acreage -- 118 acres. It also calls for a reduction of apartments to 250 units, a reduction of senior-living apartments to 310 units, 9 acres of office park, 16 acres for retail and restaurants, 5 acres for what would be the only full-service hotel east of the Hilton, and millions of dollars in upgrades for the project’s anchor, Colonial Country Club and its championship South Course."

I like the name The Memphian- throwback to the original name of the Circuit Playhouse a few blocks South when it was a movie theater back in the day.

I don't hate the design. It does look massive compared to the buildings around it. With the Square and other areas of Midtown making a comeback recently I've been hoping for more street level buildings and upwards construction. I do think they will have to do something about more parking around the Square- hopefully they have some kind of plan. I think I read in the past year or so Loeb bought the Burger King and Ihop on Union? Down the line I'm sure that will be redeveloped as well.
