In honesty, that's more likely the truth. Kind of wishing we get more daring projects. If we had that growth, it would be changing before our eyes because of demand. What Memphis developed into now have been because of the current growth rate, give or take with a few things that got built or not. If one day it change to high growth, East Memphis would benefit greatly from chnage.


Definitely agree. Change is inevitable, needed and resisted. Case in point, I always liked the old school lane arrow lights on Union back in the day - used to think it was unique and cool. Hated to see them go, but it was necessary, because it was no longer functional, plus outdated. Old school Memphians need to accept this change. Union can't be the Mulberry/Andy Griffith style street anymore. Memphis can't be that as a city either. Maybe a little, but definitely not all. As long as the charm, hospitality, work ethic, determination, toughness, resilience, music and strength that makes Memphis unique isn't lost. Poplar and Union need to change. The Kroger on Union is another good example. For one, it is closer to the street, more engaging. Hopefully that theme will be continued on this street and eastward.
