What's premium about that content. that was already announce as a 1x daily on a 50 seater. I would even be happy if the bookings supported an equipment upgrade or 2x daily.

Demolition underway for One Beale

http://wreg.com/2017/03/27/demolitio...beale-project/

I wonder why this hasn't been brought up. The developers for One Beale have received a demolition permit to demolish the W.C. Ellis and Sons building to get ready for One Beale. I'm a preservationist, but Memphis has so many old buildings with more architectural significance. Tear it down, and build the tower!

Yeah I saw this a while back. I was under the assumption they were starting to tear it down.. or at least the first building. Haven't been that way lately though. Hopefully something new comes out with One Beale in regards to updated plans soon.

Yeah, Carlisle said that they aren't finished with the final plans, but a demo permit on a 100+ year old building must mean that they are serious about starting the project.

I don't think they should be allowed to touch anything until they've pulled permits. This group, as good as their intentions may be, have been leading the city on for 10+ years now. Sure, a portion of that time was during the recession. But since the recession, just about once a year, they come forward with some update/design change/quote/etc. It's ridiculous. Either build it, or don't. I don't understand their strategy.

And for the love of Elvis, Memphis does not need any more "boutique" hotels.

I agree on One Beale-- I understand things like this are costly but hell just build the apartment tower alone since they've come out and said the hotel/office is the tricky part with costs etc, still hopeful since they have bought the adjacent property but still have doubts since the "new" plans since the recession came out what 3 years ago?

And at least this latest hotel is farther down Beale so would be good to extend-- BUT-- again with the track record have doubts on actual "action" vs plans.

I see there is a MBJ article about one of the Carlisle's leaving their position for another company and how that relates to One Beale-- I do not have subscriber content, not sure if anyone on here would? I'm eventually going to give up hope if something else regarding another setback or delay lol...

There's nothing particularly interesting or noteworthy in the story... They say it will still happen, yada yada yada. I'm so fed up with the whole thing. I'm going to try and ignore it until dirt is moving.

Images from the airport's website of what Concourse B will look like after reconstruction:









It's definitely a vast improvement from the original plans.
