“I think what you’re seeing today is a precursor of a lot more to come,” said Haslam, who added he’d been anticipating the Mitsubishi announcement for several weeks.

Heery said Memphis “made our short list” because of its workforce and solid transportation infrastructure. “Memphis has it all,” Heery said.

Pending announcement could include Memphis in electric vehicle plan
Memphis Biz Journal


A San Francisco-based company in charge of Tennessee’s participation in The EV Project will hold an informational meeting in Memphis Feb. 22. Tennessee is one of those six states, but Memphis and West Tennessee originally were left out of The EV Project’s plan. The fact that Memphis is included in the tour suggests those plans may have changed.

'Game-changer': Ahead-of-schedule Tenn. 385 could reshape local transportation, development
The Commercial Appeal


Known in various sections as Paul Barret Parkway and Bill Morris Parkway, Highway 385 forms an approximately 50-mile-long horseshoe arcing from U.S. 51 in Millington eastward to Arlington, southward to Collierville and then back westward to Interstate 240 in southeast Memphis.

The portion from Millington to Collierville eventually will be part of the larger Interstate 269 loop around metropolitan Memphis. TDOT has begun acquiring right-of-way property for a three-mile stretch of I-269 extending from Collierville to the Mississippi line. Construction of the $40 million-plus project could begin next year.

This bridge, being built by Hill Brothers Construction, will help connect the previously finished segments of the outer loop of Tenn. 385. Work began in November 2009 and could be complete as early as late 2012.

Broad Possibilities
Traffic, interest continues upward trend for Broad Avenue
Memphis Daily News


The rush began in December following the district’s one-of-a-kind “crowd-sourcing event” titled “A New Face for an Old Broad,” held in conjunction with Livable Memphis, in which empty commercial spaces were filled with staged businesses and the street was repainted with bike lanes, artistic crosswalks and green parking buffers. The event took place Nov. 19-20. It was patterned after a similar event called “A Better Block,” which took place in the small but budding Oak Cliff business district in Dallas.

Hector Andino and others lay brick on a building that is being renovated in the Broad Avenue Arts District. Paul Mortimer of Mortimer Enterprise LLC said he is seeking a tenant and exploring possible uses for the 6,000-square-foot building.

Interesting article that gives some more insight into the current snag with the Bass Pro/ Pyramid negotiations and the future of Memphis area development altogether.

If Bass Pro Shops were to put a store in The Pyramid, any structure built inside would have to meet seismic codes.

Yes, locals & residents of regional cities have started to notice Memphis is now getting considerably more concerts. Especially with the arrival of Minglewood Plaza (Minglewood Hall & the 1884 Lounge) which is quickly becoming a powerhouse for national touring acts with a high-end reputation to match.

Fans pack Minglewood Hall to hear Bassnectar last week. Bassnectar is DJ and remix artist Lorin Ashton.
