    These plans are amazing! I believe your vision and creativity will bring new exciting life to downtown I can’t wait to see the positive growth and expansion for this area that seems to have been sadly neglected…until now!

      Thanks Tracey-
      There have been no major improvements in the area for a long time. Since the area is in the path of progress it is important that we have a comprehensive plan in place. Otherwise due to the zoning it is a target for development that would have a negative effect on the community & spoil what can be a valuable asset & enjoyed by all…
      Stay tuned…

    This sounds like a fantastic project. It seems that little has been done to take advantage of that area and I can see the potential within your vision. The opportunity to redevelop this area would be a huge asset to downtown and to the entire city.

    Good luck with the vision…Memphis leaders of the past have done very little to take advantage of our riverfront…certainly hope this comes to fruition in a way that will be a long term enhancement and not just some trendy construction project. It sounds really exciting.

      Sustainability is high on our goals. We have had in-put from numerous architects, engineers, City planners & etc.
      By showcasing the rich history of the area & embracing the riverfront by adding venues that will allow people to get intimate with the river. It is certain to big a big attraction.

      Thanks & please join us on 3/22 @ 2pm in Chickasaw park for guided tour by Jimmy Ogle…

    Lauren, I’ve been a fan of the project every since you began. I truly believe that this project will put you on the map as a pioneer of the revitalization of Memphis. Things are truly looking up and this project will provide a southern anchor to the downtown area. I can’t wait to have dinner with you in that restaurant and propose a toast to your successes.I Can’t way to see the finished product, well done!!

    Your welcome Tim-
    I believe my vision is being very well received. It is hard not to see the tremendous benefits for all.
    One of my favorite things is talking about the rich history of the area.
    Join us on a walking tour of the area including bridges with Jimmy Ogle (City historian) on March 22 at 2 pm. Starts in front of Marine building…
