I spent the New Year's holiday in Collierville. There is a whole lot going on there. Lots of condos/apartments are springing up there.

A massive warehouse is planned for North Memphis. Could it be Amazon?

 

Based simply on its size — five stories and possibly more than 4 million square feet on a 99-acre plot of land — elected officials have estimated that it could create at least 1,000 jobs. Its parking lot — 1,828 car and 200 truck spaces plus an area that could be used to add future parking — indicates the possibility of even more hiring.

Folks, this is like getting a 1,500 ft tower built in downtown. This is HUGE news!

 

**Now, just down the road in Nashville, project 'Sam' has just been approved which is - guess what - 5 stories, 3.5 million square feet, and parking for 1,800 cars

Mt. Juliet's mammoth Project Sam: A 3.6 million-square-foot warehouse and office plan proposed

https://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2019/08/19/giant-distribution-hub-pitched-for-project-sam.html

1,000 jobs among new details revealed as Mt. Juliet's Project Sam takes step toward approval

So, this looks like Amazon, but no confirmation for either Memphis nor Nashville at this time

Bank of Bartlett leads $90M Arlington project, set to break ground in early 2020

A development with the potential to make a major impact on Arlington recently moved one step closer to reality.

The town's planning commission approved the infrastructure plan for the first phase of the 45-acre, $90 million Providence Place development on Nov. 18.

The first phase — the left half of the plans pictured above — is set to include a hotel with roughly 100 rooms, up to 97 apartments above 57,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and another five or so retail buildings.

Good to see continued movement on this project:

Quote

 

The nearly $400 million Lake District development off Interstate 40 at Canada Road is about to start coming out of the ground.

Three building permits valued at $13 million have been filed by Gilad Development Inc. for 9845, 9861, and 3504 N. Lake District Drive, according to public records.

“We’re doing sewers and storm drains now and getting ready to go vertical very soon, weather permitting,” said Gilad Director of Development Maggie Gallagher.

A $10 million permit for 9845 N. Lake District is for new construction of an 85,000-square-foot in-line retail shell and mixed-use complex of restaurants, according to the filing.

Looks like Millington is next on the mixed-use development front.

103-acre, mixed-use development proposed for Millington

By Tom Bailey, The Daily Memphian

https://dailymemphian.com/section/business/article/11678/103-acre-mixed-use-development-proposed-for

Quote

Developer Tom Marsh, doing business as TM Farms Holdings LLC, owns the acreage and is developing the mixed-use project.

The site is in north Millington. The property is behind, or east of, the existing Millington Farms Shopping Center anchored by Lowe’s, Petco and Ross Dress for Less. Veterans Parkway is the northern border, North Fork Creek is the eastern border and residents are to the south.

The Millington Industrial Development Board describes Millington Farms as a “transformational” development that will bring the kinds of apartments, shopping and other services that are not now available in northern Shelby County.

The public, through tax-increment financing, would pay an estimated $15 million for an extension of Glencoe Way, construction of an interior road, utilities, sidewalks and other improvements.

Progress continues and update on the Lake District in Lakeland

 

 

Construction for Lake District still underway amid public health crisis

 

 

https://www.wmcactionnews5.com/2020/06/29/construction-lake-district-still-underway-amid-public-health-crisis/

 

 

"One of the Mid-South’s most ambitious construction projects, the Lake District is an upscale, mixed-use development on an 11-acre lake at I-40 and Canada Road.

They broke ground on February 5 and then COVID-19 happened.

But developer Yahuda Netanel says the coronavirus has not slowed down progress on the 161-acre project.

Construction on phase one, which includes retail and residential space, is right on schedule.

 

The Lake District will have an Osaka, Starbucks, Firehouse Subs and Frieda's.

More than 100 townhomes, the developer calls, unlike any other in the MId-South are being built."

 

The Lake District will also have a supermarket, gym and movie theater.

 

The developer says they’re still looking for an optometrist, dry cleaner, pizza place and local brewery to move into the development.

If the weather cooperates, phase one should be done by the holidays."

Not bad for a suburb!

Rezoning recommended for condos near Collierville square

Collierville planning commissioners endorsed a rezoning Thursday, Oct. 1, evening that will allow office and condominiums on a 1-acre tract near town square. 

The request to change the site at South and Center streets from general commercial to mixed-use still faces review by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen.

Interesting. The skeptic in me wonders if non-gamblers will drive that far for such a water park. But I'll hope for the best.

Snippet from the article:

Resort, water park planned for old Harrah’s Tunica site

https://dailymemphian.com/section/business/article/21025/harrahs-tunica-site-redevelopent-resort-water-park

Quote

 

The former Harrah’s Tunica Resort will undergo a $140 million redevelopment as a family entertainment venue with no gambling. 

Tunica Hospitality & Entertainment on Wednesday, March 31, announced that the project will include construction of a 20-acre water park, youth sports complex, renovation of two hotels, a convention center, a spa and salon, a 100-acre private lake, a “family fun center” with video arcade, a sporting clay and hunting center, a recreational vehicle park, a boardwalk with dining, retail, and entertainment venues, and renovation of an 18-hole golf course.

Wonder if this will affect the Indoor Park proposed near Jackson?

Two different developments with two different focuses. The Tunica project would re-activate the former Grand Casino/Harrah's property for non-casino use (only the casino barges were removed while everything else was kept intact) while the Great Wolf Lodge proposal for Jackson is being planned to compliment an already existing youth sports complex in that city.

Yeah, they will be 115 miles apart.  Wolf Lodge will be indoors, this one doesn't specify, but maybe outdoors.  This will have 18 hole golf course, spa, convention space, adult arcade, a lake with fishing and walking, restaurants, target shooting, and youth fields.  Wolf Lodge seems more family - oriented to kids.  This one has a greater variety of activities for everyone of all ages, even without kids.

Also the Great Wolf Lodge is a hotel so the waterpark will be primarily for guests, so the public unless booking a hotel room will most likely not get to experience it.

People from Memphis drive to Magic Springs in Arkansas all the time,  and thats about a 2 hours away. 

I felt for years that Tunica have the opportunity to be more than a Gambling resort destination since the Casino industry started to decline there, but strong enough to draw people for other options. Hopefully for Tunica, this can spur other ideas for Family Entertainment

That's true, but Hot Springs is more of a destination with other offerings for visitors. What else does Tunica offer non-gamblers?

I think it's doable, but it will take aggressive marketing to pull people away from Hot Springs and even St. Louis to an extent (a lot of people go to Six Flags/Hurricane Harbor).

I think as a whole it will draw more people to the metro if we think about it that way Memphis area has casinos, night life, recreation, museums, and now amusement the only thing we are missing

Let's keep in mind most of what is in the development plans already exist on the property, but have sat vacant since the Harrah's closure seven years ago. A significant amount is being put into renovating and reactivating what is already there while adding new amenities to enhance the experience for families they hope to draw there in the future. The only actual new construction would be the water park, boardwalk area, and youth sports facilities among others.

Yes, I was aware that most of the things were already present.  Probably why the site was attractive to them.  Much more cost effective to renovate some hotels, re-sod a golf course, and build a walking path around an existing lake than to start from scratch.  

Tunica is a very interesting place.  It started from scratch in a county of 8,000 people that only had 2,000 jobs and became, at one time the 3rd largest gaming center in the country.  It didn't exist in an urban setting but sprung up in the poorest of places amongst bean and cotton fields.  12 casino sites were built over the years, with 10 active at one time, but only 6 active now.  Tunica County swelled to 15,000 jobs and with a boon of tax income, was able to build a River Park, Exposition Center, Golf Course/Tennis Center, recreation center and fields, downtown facade improvements and build/expand airport, library, police/fire stations.  An outlet mall was built, and some housing.  However, the population never got above 10,000 for the county.  "Tunica" was booming at one point, but as time passes, things can lose their shine or excitement.  Other entertainment and Casinos open.  Southland is able to video gambling, and then live gambling, and is a much shorter drive from downtown Memphis.  A devastating flood damages the casinos.  It goes into decline.  I think one of the problems with "Tunica" is that it's so spread out.  There's a couple groupings of casinos, but they are miles apart.  And they are by themselves.  No shopping or housing nearby.  And the actual city of Tunica is 10 miles away.  I think there's a lot of potential there, but there needs to be a bigger population base that will bring more of a community that will consist of more industry and more retail and daily life things.  This will make it more robust and cohesive, and could become an active and thriving suburb of Memphis.
