  1. Oh look another chance to make a snide remark about Memphis, like what is filling up every section of this forum. Do you visit often? Have you lived in Memphis? Seems a bit obsessive and really makes things so enjoyable.
  2. I wasn't really sure if this should be in the Downtown or Midtown section but it's in the Medical District, soo.. $56M mixed-use development proposed for Medical District $56M mixed-use development proposed for Medical District - Memphis Local, Sports, Business & Food News | Daily Memphian "A $55.7 million mixed-use development is proposed for nearly the entire block along Union, between Cleveland and Claybrook.

  6. This is true in a lot of neighborhoods closer to the core (Cooper-Young/Evergreen come to mind)- I am not sure the history. I always sort of guessed it was part of revitalization attempts of those neighborhoods in the late 80's/90's perhaps? Again, just a guess on my part and wasn't really around when those areas saw more investment (I'm close to 40 now). I would love to see more of this across the city someday.

    I agree it's definitely not just a basketball city. I was at all aspects of Game Day last year, what day, Go Tigers . But it's not just Nashville having a team. It would definitely take a major plan with a sparkling new stadium with major corporate players on board, as well as the city, etc etc. As well as the NFL being interested in expanding again or relocating a team. We just dropped millions into the Liberty Bowl with new seating/ Tiger Lane etc that was meant for it to last another 20 years or so. It's much improved and we have (in normal years) seen higher attendance and supp

    There was definitely a huge appetite for a team in the 70's/80's/90's and great corporate support with FedEx and others-- after we lost out on the 95 expansion bid and a year later the Oilers were moving to Nashville and we were picked to basically babysit them for 2 years while they were building a brand new stadium (again, probably the main reason Memphis shot itself in the foot by losing out on the expansion or any possible relocations) did not go over well considering it'd been attempted for so long. There was zero chance after that the NFL would put a team in both cities so close to ea

    Yeah there's no chance of that happening at this point, especially as long as the Titans are in Nashville. If Memphis had built a new stadium in the 90's I think they would've gotten a team instead of Jacksonville, and I am not sure how successful it would have been long term- possibly would have been the same type of success as the Jaguars. But I can't re-write history... and if we did get a team back then I think we never would've gotten the Grizzlies and I think the NBA is a better fit for Memphis and always thought back in the 80's/90's they should have put their efforts into an NBA te
  15. Central Yards has cleared its first hurdle: "The planning board voted 9-0 with one recusal on Thursday, Dec. 10, to support what is, by Midtown standards, a huge development: 348 apartments, 615 parking spaces, and 53,000 square feet of commercial space. The proposed Central Yards mixed-use development next goes to the City Council with a strong recommendation for approval by the Land Use Control Board."
