West Memphis has the potential to become one of the greatest Memphis suburbs. I'm so glad that it's finally getting economic attention.

It's currently undergoing a redesign now that the old Police Headquarters has been added to the project's footprint. Expect an update on that in the near future.

If Money was no object, I'd build up the river bank between the bridges for development just like the built up land for the road ways and the weigh stations. First "island" would be mixed use, No sky scrapers but done in a fashion to support up to 10 story's with the proper pilings this would be along the River, Another "island" could by much like Harbor town and a third "island" would be Commercial in nature with some possibility of some thing like Great Wolf Lodge as a tourism draw. It would create lakes for the needed displacement and seperate the islands. The land cutoff by the rail tracks could be really repurposed into natural wetlands with trails and such and observation blinds.

Snuff District lands Varsity Spirit headquarters
By The Daily Memphian Staff/ November 20, 2019 9:36 AM CT

"Of four large, mixed-use developments – One Beale, Union Row, Pinch District and Snuff District – that are planned or being built in or around Downtown, the Snuff District is the first to land a substantial office tenant.

Varsity Spirit will lease 80,000 square feet in the Uptown development, moving its headquarters from the Lenox Center in the Tennessee 385 Corridor, lead Snuff District developer William "Billy" Orgel said Wednesday."
Orgel has said the development will cost nearly $200 million when built out with more than 600 apartments, 80,000 square feet of office space, parking facilities for 800 to 900 spaces, about 50 single-family homes, 10,000 to 12,000 square feet of retail, a river walk and park area.

"The development plan includes a site for a possible hotel.
Among the goals for the Snuff District is to finally connect Uptown to the Wolf River Harbor. Fences, the CN Railroad and overgrowth have long blocked residents of the mixed-income neighborhood from enjoying the water’s edge."

Question about the Shelby Farms area....

I see the recent news about a new apartment project that's about to start, it was mentioned here a few post ago called Velo at Shelby farms. Now that same article mention another development which is the mixed-use proposal called Dwells at Shelby farms from maybe 2 years ago now.

My question is what ever happed to the Parkside at Shelby Farms? That was the biggest proposed development of the three. This one really had a huge plan, I was shocked to see it wasn't mentioned in that recent article and wonder do anyone have a word on it? I remember it was proposed in 2016.

I was thinking the same thing recently and if I recall correctly I believe it was approved with the city council etc? Been a while since I've seen any news on it though.

Planners, St. Jude compromise over Pinch building design
By Tom Bailey/ The Daily Memphian


Quote:
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and community planners waged an early battle Wednesday, Nov. 20, over how a resurgent Pinch District should look and feel when new buildings rise just north of the Downtown core... The 140-room, six-story building will fill the block surrounded by Third on the east, Overton on the north, Second on the west and Jackson on the south. The $100 million building will connect to St. Jude’s main campus east of Third with a pedestrian skyway.

More Binghampton Revival.

New Binghampton sports complex to be named after Claude Humphrey
By Omer Yusuf/ The Daily Memphian


Quote:
Pro Football Hall of Famer Claude Humphrey jokingly admits the recent developments in Binghampton predate his teenage years in the neighborhood... Construction is set to begin on Binghampton’s first multi-purpose sports complex. The 2.5-acre sports complex, to be located at Broad Avenue and Carpenter Street, will be named in Humphrey’s honor... The Broad Avenue Community and Economic Development Corp. (BRACED) is behind the $600,000 project. BRACED is an off-shoot of First Baptist Church — Broad... The proposed sports complex includes a new football field, walking/running trail and pavilion. The facility is expected to hold up to 500 people.

Bank of Bartlett leads $90M Arlington project, set to break ground in early 2020
By Jacob Steimer – Staff Reporter, Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
The first phase — the left half of the plans pictured... — is set to include a hotel with roughly 100 rooms, up to 97 apartments above 57,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and another five or so retail buildings... The project has been in the works for a few years, but the bank had been slow-moving due to uncertainty surrounding the lots to its south and west. To the west is the site where Kroger held a ceremonial groundbreaking in 2016 for a Marketplace location but hasn't constructed anything. To the south sits the site where Baptist Memorial Health Care Corp. is planning a freestanding emergency department.

One Beale adds second hotel to its plans
By Jacob Steimer – Staff Reporter, Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
Design Review Board is set to approve plans for a 120-room boutique hotel just south of the One Beale Hyatt Centric hotel that's currently being built. At nine stories, the hotel is set to be taller than the 230-room Hyatt. It is set to rise above the main part of the Wm. C. Ellis & Sons building — a site that was previously set to just contain retail, restaurants, and meeting space, according to plans released in November 2018. The Ellis building's facade will be preserved to "elevate the facade to the status of artifact," according to the application by HBG Design, the project's architect. The tower will be built with brick. There would be a courtyard between the front of the tower and the existing Ellis facade and a pedestrian plaza just west of the building.

Awesome to hear... but I wonder why two grocery stories and not say, a grocery store and a TJ Maxx or Target?

A city Target would be awesome. The downtown area is definitely ready for it. The article says they'll do a small boutique grocery in the middle of the Union Row project, and a bigger affordable store on a site towards the South City area. If they go with a affordable store then I'll expect a Save of Lot, Cash Saver, or Superlo Foods as one of the stores.

If I recall, weren't there plans for a Target in Midtown at Poplar/Cleveland near Crosstown 10 years or so ago and killed by the recession? With all the apartments/businesses and everything else coming back in the core I suspect we'll get more stores like this eventually.
