Pretty decent infill project proposed across from Minglewood Hall. Not a fan of the surface parking lot visible to the single-family residences on Court. Adding a few rowhomes fronting Court could well mask the lot. Although in general I'd like to see more rowhomes used as infill-achieves suprisingly good population density, and satisfies those who want single family to predominate.

A New York developer is planning to turn Downtown Memphis' tallest building into a 550-room Loews Hotel, with about 220 apartments. The investors are also planning a 34-story office building next door.

ans for the project inspected by the Memphis Business Journal call for a major transformation of 100 N. Main, the high rise that for several years has been vacant, has been in and out of Shelby County Environmental Court and has been in the hands of several property owners.

The renovations of the building's street-level main floor would include 20,000 square feet of retail space, a 7,500-square-foot hotel lobby and a 10,000-square-foot restaurant and bar. Other floors would include a spa, another restaurant, and the hotel rooms and apartments.

New York-based Townhouse Management Co., doing business as THM Memphis Acquisitions LLC, is the owner and would-be developer of 100 N. Main. According to the company's website, Townhouse acquires, develops and manages residential, commercial, retail and mixed-use properties throughout the New York metro area.

The project plans MBJ reviewed also show 88 N. Main St., located next door to 100 N. Main, with a 12-floor, roughly 1,300-space parking garage at the base of the building. Each of the two floors directly above the garage would contain 35,000-square-foot ballrooms. From there, two office towers would rise, 19 stories each. The towers would contain a total of 467,000 square feet of office space.
I'm a little confused by the 100 N main project. Are these on the same property? Three towers? or was this a mistake on the reporting? That would be major to have 3 new buildings, plus renovating 100 N main building.

My guess was they meant the lot next door at 88 N Main would be 2 towers on top of a garage?

From my reading is the 19 story office towers will be on top of the parking garage which will be many stories. Add in the ballroom space and you get 34 stories.

So....
12 stories of parking, two stories of ballrooms, 19 stories of office space equals 34 total.

Will the two office towers be twinkies or will they have different looks to give the appearance of separate towers. Does that mean 2 or 4 total ballrooms? Do they someone in mind to occupy this space? On the surface this seems big but wake me when the crains show up.

Now, I need to hear that the county and city will relocate 201 and all the courts to a central location and free up that blighted space for development. The old Mall of Memphis space would have been swell.

These New York Investors Are Serious

100 North Main Owner Buys Two Adjacent Parcels

Memphis Daily News:https://www.memphisdailynews.com/new...acent-parcels/

Quote:
Less than a month after the 100 North Main Building was effectively reclaimed by the lender at a foreclosure auction, New York-based real estate firm Townhouse Management Co. affiliate THM Memphis Acquisitions LLC has purchased two adjacent parcels.

The first parcels, located at 86 and 88 N. Main, were purchased from the National Housing Corp. of Memphis for a little more than $1 million, while the second parcel, located at 80 N. Main, was purchased from Cynthia Luo for $485,743.

80 N. Main is a 12,000-square-foot “downtown row” style building that was built in 1905 and last appraised for $160,400 by the Shelby County Property Assessor.

The 138-year-old 86 N. Main building was appraised for $131,100 and the 108-year-old 88 N. Main building was appraised for $152,300, according to the assessor’s website.

Long-time lurker, first-time poster, hi everyone!


I agree with the skepticism around the 100 N Main project, and a best case scenario for a Memphis mega-project seems to be 10 years of planning and revision before breaking ground (looking at you, One Beale).
That said, assuming this is legit, could this be big enough to be the long-awaited convention hotel? I assume it would be big enough to have the hundreds of rooms in one place everyone says Memphis needs in one facility, and it's close enough to Cook. Thoughts?

Looking at Google maps and and where the jail is located, the blocks around it just kills the flow of downtown. Big mistake putting that downtown. All of the surface parking lots, and bonding businesses near there don't look attractive.

Welcome! That's my thoughts exactly with the convention center. I heard it before about 100 Main possibly filling some of that hotel space gap. The Cook is close enough though. Now i'm hoping these developers move fast compared to most of the downtown projects. The fastest thing I seen move in development wise, was the Graceland Hotel, and Entertainment plaza from announcement, to construction, to finish. Straight to the point.

It's festering boil on the face of downtown. Like I said, the Mall of Memphis property could have been a good relocation spot. Regardless, it needs relocated for the sake of downtown to a more centrap location for the City and County. By all means keep City and County administration ofices there, the jail and courts need to go.

I don't think the problem is 201 being downtown; the problem isn't its function as a jail. And additionally 201 being placed outside the Loop would introduce inefficiencies. The problem is over reliance on surface parking lots, absence of streetscaping, and absence of diversity of businesses aside for government and bonding companies. Widen the sidewalks, add street trees, add on-street parking in both directions, remove curb cuts and incentivize parking lot infill. Incremental improvements would be preferred.

St. Jude to build $412 million advanced research center
Tom Charlier, USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee/ The Commercial Appeal


Quote:
In one of the largest capital projects in Memphis history, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will erect a $412 million research center complete with futuristic, glass-walled laboratories nestled amid open-space areas to give scientists a chance to share ideas and discoveries as they talk shop. The hospital on Monday will formally announce plans for the 625,000-square-foot advanced research center, which is a major component of the $1 billion capital expansion of the Downtown campus outlined two years ago.
