Superlo seems most viable for the larger grocery tenant since they're local and employee-owned (to which I think the Stepherson's name should be used instead), though I wouldn't rule out the possibility of an AWG-branded store being considered (i.e., Cash Saver, Apple Market) if they get a franchisee involved. Aldi is also possible as well.

In terms of the boutique grocer, three options come to mind. Either a Sprouts, Fresh Market, or a Trader Joe's seem likely. We'll have to wait and see what happens with those efforts.

Yes the Washington Bottoms site which just went up for sale again... that area is just too large to stay underdeveloped for long. The way Midtown and Downtown have been moving lately, my guess is we'll hear something first quarter of 2020. There's something proposed almost every week in Midtown alone.

I almost forgot about Gordins Butcher Shoppe as a option. Memphis have a decent selection for low cost grocery stores. I dont think they'll have a problem bringing one of the few.

I'll love to see Trader Joe's as the choice. Only because there's one location now. We have two spourts, more than two Fresh Markets. So that will expand their presence. I hope we don't see an over saturation with downtown grocery options. As I remembered South City had a plan already for its mixed-use development (unless this is it) and somewhere else in the South Main area

Including a $3.2 million purchase of the property, Zaki intends to spend $12.4 million on the project, according to his application for the incentive.

Looks like they are going to keep most of the police station intact! I was afraid they were going to tear the whole thing down. Its good to see that they are going to preserve the building!

Welcome & thanks for the link. I haven't even seen those yet. As the footprint grew, the building decreased from 26 stories to 17 last I heard. 9 stories in exchange for saving & incorporating the historic police station was a good deal. I think they reduced room count by 50 as well. Memphis does strive for preservation & adaptive reuse. Now the city needs to be proactive about 100 N. Main & Jefferson Plaza.

Youth Villages to hire 200 for expanded Bill’s Place on Bartlett campus
By Michael Waddell/ The Daily Memphian


Quote:
Youth Villages is adding 200 staff members at its Bartlett campus in connection with a $22 million expansion of the nonprofit organization's intensive treatment center... Planning for the project began seven or eight years ago with the initial concept calling simply for adding a gymnasium to the existing boys’ center.

EDGE prepares for huge Mississippi River port project to become real
By Jacob Steimer – Staff Reporter, Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
APH has been negotiating with a major ocean carrier firm and developing a self-propelled container ship that can carry 2,500 containers up the Mississippi, which is far more than any current river ship can haul, EDGE vice president Randy Richardson said. EDGE has been talking with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) about locating a huge port facility partially on the site of the old Allen Fossil Plant, which closed in 2018.

It will also be the company's first operations center in the U.S. Google has not decided on an exact location for the new facility or if it will erect a new building or lease one already built.

Memphis lands top spot on Forbes travel list
By John Klyce – Staff writer, Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
Music and good grub aren’t the only things the city has going for it either. Locals have watched Downtown transform over the last decade. And this year, the University of Memphis made the cut for the U.S. News and World Report rankings for the first time. The Memphis Zoo — consistently listed as one of the best in the country — is an integral part of species conservation efforts here and abroad. In October, Memphis was also named one of the most charitable cities in America. So much for only going to Memphis for “cheap beer and barbecue.”

2019 was busiest in three decades for planning board
By Tom Bailey/ The Daily Memphian


Quote:
The Board of Adjustment's heavy monthly agendas reflect the rise in development activity in Memphis. The eight-member board heard 134 cases during 2019. This year “was the busiest year for the Board, as measured by cases filed, in 30 years,” Planning Director Josh Whitehead states in his annual, year-end report. He serves as secretary to the Board of Adjustment. The 134 cases were the most since 1989 when the board heard 153 cases.
