  1. I suspect it's a national problem. On the other hand, I've read that apartments are hard to come by downtown, so it might be a good thing in the long run, particularly with the law school going in down the street.
  2. Great pics, thanks! What camera/filters/settings did you use?
  3. Who knows what SI bases that one on. Given the fact that every other media outlet in the nation is predicting that the Hornets are not long for New Orleans, I think the writer is just talking. I don't have much faith in the investigative prowess of the local Memphis press, but I'd think if the team had seriously been considering leaving, even the dummies at the CA would have picked up on it. Maybe the fan apathy is due to the fact that Memphis isn't large enough to support two pro basketball teams.
  4. The newly announced Fourth Street project at Union has also proposed a hotel.
  5. Right, there's certainly no building in that area of Front St. which resembles the rendering of Mirabella.
  6. Well there are also 358 in conversion and and 532 under construction which aren't included in the 1010 proposed figure.
  7. Here's another list for downtown: Total Number of Condominium Units Complete, Planned or Under Construction: 2,855 Prepared By: Center City Commission Updated March 2, 2006 New Upcoming Condos Name Units 2 W GE Patterson 19 420 S Front 36 456 Tennessee 26 92-96 S Main 18 Front Bluff 34 Front Street Condos 12 Hoover Building 42 Hunt Phelan Phase 2 24 Machine Shop Condos 14 Metal Museum 30 Mirabella 60 One Beale 160 Pinch Place 64 River Crest 11 The 444 42 The ForeFront 26 The Horizon 350 The Nettleton 34 The Phoenix 8 Total 1010 Condos Conversions In Progress Name Units River Tower 153 Shrine 75 The Lofts 115 The Residences 15 Total 358 Condos Under Construction Name Units 130 Keel 6 496 S Main 3 648 Riverside 66 83 S Main 3 85-95 S Main 17 Carolina Lofts 72 City Commons 42 City House 36 Gardens of South Main 7 Goodwyn Institute 8 Harbor Lights 24 Main St Flats 36 State Place 204 The Lawrence Building 8 Total 532 Completed Condos Name Units 378 S Main 8 415 Front 20 493 S Main 2 Ambassador 18 Barton Flats 20 Bellevue Terrace 16 Brodnax 2 Bryton Tower 124 Candy Factory 9 Central Station Lofts 24 Chickasaw Bluff 12 Claridge 158 DT Porter Condos 18 Fogelman YMCA 24 Front Row Condos 14 GE 5 5 Harbor Town Centre 4 Hayes Building 2 Hotline Lofts 15 Hunt Phelan 12 Paper Works 62 Portico 21 Potter
  8. Great New Orleans pic. I can almost see my old Bywater house. Memphis' Central Station apts: Downtown Memphis apts:
  9. Don't take it the wrong way, but I think the Center City pic looks the most interesting of the three. Of course, looking interesting and actually living there might be two different things. I imagine even the Everly Brothers got out as soon as they made some dollars. Had a brother in law who worked on equipment maintenance in those coal mines around Center City.
  10. sleepy


    Even if that's all there was going on, I think those developments are pretty exciting in their own right. Then, you've got the Tunica airport which I believe is now flying in 737's. And, too, DeSoto County is something on the order of the 35th fastest growing county in the US, and you have Tunica as the 3rd largest gambling center. So, I think with all that, there will be a lot of new development going on in the Memphis/Mississippi metro area.
  11. Well, since you've got some inside track maybe, perhaps you could keep us updated on the status of the Memphis project to turn the old Chisca Hotel into some sort of Hilton development, as well as the status on the Memphis downtown Embassy Suites. Also, if you find out, I'd be really curious to know the name of the "5 star" hotel being pitched for Memphis' One Beale project. Finally, any info on the hotel operator for that proposed domed resort thing in Tunica?
  12. Hey, just the magic of the market!
  13. Yeah, I remember going with my dad through Copperhill and Ducktown in the 60's. It was devastated back then and was really amazing to see coming from the North Carolina side which was all green.
