    What a great opportunity for our city and for the commercial and residential communities downtown. Thank you Lauren for taking the lead on this project and your many years of hard work and dedication to make this happen. Memphis should be proud to have someone like you make such a positive impact for so many people. You have my support!

    This project will bring beauty to an area of Memphis in special need of improvement and attention. Thank you for your efforts in bringing life into an area of the city that has been ignored for decades.

    Lauren showed me his early concept for French Fort about seven years ago… and the ideas and vision since those initial drawings are tenfold better. It is a project who’s time has come and I hope all the parts and pieces come together sooner than later. Memphis needs to support this beautiful and innovative “welcome mat” to our city.

    Lauren… I admire your unrelenting passion for this project.

      Most projects revolve around the new round-a-bout to be done by TDOT. This has caused delays in the project however it has also given us time to critique and share with numerous planners locally and across the country.
      It is still work in progress and we will be making changes until we have something that comes close to satisfying all stakeholders and etc. I hope to be able to start construction on our first project in next year or eighteen months. Projects will be phased over time but from recent response we have had it appears it could possibly move much faster than we have predicted.
      Yes I am stubborn… It may be awhile before I recoup my investment but I believe it will be all worthwhile. It is a great project for City & Community and will produce badly needed revenue to City & County. It also might be a good model for other projects.

      Thanks, stay abreast…
