It seems the Regional Medical Center Of Memphis might be on track to begin preparations for its' proposed new $318 Million hospital bed tower. Maybe the next Governor won't take its' federal funding and hand it over to private companies because the nation's busiest Level 1 Trauma Center deserves much, much better.

Found this article about a small historic district northwest of Jonesboro,AR (which is currently seeing a lot of investment in its' own historic downtown area). It reminded me to post some information about a great story I saw on the news the other day, Ripley,TN is doing a massive restoration of its' historic town square.

Here you go. National Press on Ripley,TN's town square revitalization. Very cool.

The new streetlights in the revitalization area not only complement the era of the courthouse but also their prismatic glass lamps direct light down for pedestrian safety as well as to reduce night sky light pollution.

Utilizing traffic calming techniques, engineers are creating an atmosphere around the area that is inviting to pedestrians by making the area safer for them.

Then there's this dedicated website that even includes a webcam of the progress (just click on the banner "Come see what's growing on!"

The completion of this $450 Million expansion/development in Orlando by Memphis-based Belz Enterprises is on a direct time table with the start of the $55 Million expansion of Peabody Suites into the upper floors of Peabody Place, greatly reducing the huge retail sq footage that had sub-par performance.

Renaissance Avenue
Local artists, restaurant owners and entrepreneurs breathe new life into Broad
Memphis Daily News

The area around Broad Avenue was challenged by crime and some businesses were slowly dying even before the Sam Cooper expansion cut it off completely from the Binghamton neighborhood. But in the few years since, artists who lived there, usually above their own studio spaces, have banded together to create an arts district like Cooper-Young and South Main. Photos: Lance Murphey


Jerry Couillard of Metalworks stands by a metal top hat that his shop recently made for the opening gala celebration of Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. The business creates metal arts.


David Brown of Splash Creative is president of the Historic Broad Avenue Business Association. New galleries and new restaurants are helping turn the area into an active Arts District.

I didn't post this update the other day. CKx has a proposed $250 Million redevelopment for Graceland waiting in the wings. It is rumored to include demolishing the Heartbreak Hotel and building a larger hotel tower with a convention center. The Heartbreak Hotel has the highest occupancy rate of any hotel in the state of TN.
