French Fort Neighborhood

2 posts in this topic

A new website is online that details the history as well as redevelopment plans for the French Fort neighborhood near Downtown Memphis just south of the I-55, Frisco, and Harahan Bridges.

The proposed Master Plan for the area includes the redevelopment of the old Marine Hospital as well as new mixed-use, residential and hotel opportunities totaling $150 million. The entire project is tentative with proposed Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district designation along with TDOT's reconstruction of the I-55 & Crump Boulevard interchange that will include new roundabout access to the neighborhood via an extension of Alston Avenue.

I'm just now researching this project, it sounds like a nice way along with TDOT's new traffic circle and redesign of the I-55 interchange to reconnect and urbanize the area around south downtown.

This is about the I-55 redesign:
