City seeks approval for Memphis Fairgrounds Planned Development

In addition to 'a convention center for sports' it will include mixed-use Village District

The city seeks approval from the Land Use Control Board for a new 200,000-square-foot sports and events complex and a 700,000-square-foot mixed-use development of retail, restaurants, hotels, entertainment, commercial office space and multifamily residential. 

Owners trot out plans for old mounted police station

The long-vacant, long-ignored Barksdale Mounted Police Station still has jail cell bars, horse stable windows and the name of Tennessee’s most infamous politician etched into the ornate front wall. A renovation will soon breathe new life into the city's first “suburban” police station.
