Report: Mixed-use retail center proposed for Memphis
Memphis, Tenn. – A mixed-use retail center has reportedly been proposed for downtown Memphis. According to the Memphis Daily News, the 10,500-sq.-ft., two-story building would contain office, restaurant and café space, as well as a potential convenience store.
The development has also been approved for two drive-thru windows. It is located on the northeast corner of South Third Street and East Butler Avenue and has already been cleared. The developer is Compton, Calif.-based Inner Vision Memphis Inc. The Downtown Memphis Commission has publicly opposed the specific design of the center while saying it does support retail space there, and the Memphis Office of Planning and Development, which approved the drive-thru window request, has recommended the development include a piece of art installed in a pedestrian plaza.
