    Road color

    I wouldn’t say it equates to the economic health of the area. It’s just different. Personally, I think concrete roads appear much worse as they age (looking at you, 440 in Nashville). The brownish asphalt isn’t nearly as jarring. But at the end of the day, it’s all a matter of preference. As long as the roads are well maintained, I don’t mind the color as much.

    Road color

    The asphalt is probably made from brown rock sourced from a local quarry. Possibly river related? Definitely unique.
  12. Looks like this run-down stretch of 8th (including the Little Caesars and the strip mall with Bolton's) will soon be replaced by a more pedestrian-friendly strip of retail. Unfortunately, it appears that the Captain D's next door will remain untouched. I am concerned whether or not the demand exists for more retail and dining on this corridor. There are a few bays still open in the 8th South condo building as well as the Melrose addition (all of the bays are empty aside from the Regions bank).

    Swanky's Taco Shop will open downtown in former the former LYFE Kitchen spot in the Chisca. I think this is a good move...there isn't really a great fast-casual Tex Mex place downtown (that I can think of). Both LYFE Kitchen locations in Memphis have now closed. The one on Poplar in East Memphis was replaced by Central BBQ. Swankys Taco Shop to replace closed LYFE Kitchen on S.
