MARINE HOSPITAL RESIDENCES
One of Memphis' most impressive historic buildings—the Marine Hospital, built primarily in the 1930s—is now being restored and renovated after 54 years of abandonment. Rooms that were once used to treat members of the Coast Guard, state maritime academies, Army Corps of Engineers, and those injured in the line of duty are now being repurposed into 71 apartment units in the French Fort neighborhood. Three of these units will be located in the freestanding "nurse's quarters," a smaller building that dates back to the civil war. The complex will include a pool, large windows, and striking views of the Mississippi River.
With 174 rooms and 117,000 square feet of high-end hospitality space, the new Canopy Hotel will sit directly in the heart of downtown Memphis. The lobby of the hotel will feature large skylights in the atrium, creating a bight and welcoming environment for guests. The hotel will also contain a restaurant and bar, as well as an outdoor patio.
18 SOUTH MAIN
Where Floyd Alley meets South Main Street in downtown Memphis, there sits a nondescript three-story dating back to the early 20th century. After years of neglect, this former department store will be transformed into a bright and modern facility with 22,000 square feet available for brand new tenants such as a restaurant, yoga studio, speakeasy, and corporate office.
THE BELLAMY DAYTONA
This student housing development in Daytona Beach, Florida is a gated, four-story, resort-style community that will feature 96 fully-furnished apartments with 376 private bedrooms. Atypical to most properties in the area, Bellamy at Daytona will feature top of the line, modern amenities including a private bathroom and study area in each individual bedroom. Further, the Property will be the only one of its kind in the area to feature five-bedroom, two story penthouses, a favorite of residents at M&E’s existing student housing properties.
CHRIST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
In the fall of 2018, ground was broken on the new home of Christ Presbyterian Church in Oxford, Mississippi. The building is expected to be approximately 30,000 square feet, and it sits on a 10-acre lot. The sanctuary, which will double as an activity center, will have seating for around 800 people.
Located in Starkville, MS, College View is a multi-phased development that includes 656 residential beds for upperclassmen in Phase I, with delivery in the fall of 2019. College View will also feature 46,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, recreational amenities, an outdoor entertainment zone, a 7,000-square-foot day care center, and parking.
This unique project involves the renovation of the iconic Wonder Bread factory in downtown Memphis, turning it into a massive mixed-use development. Much of the bakery building will be transformed into 199 class-A apartments and a 440-space parking garage in its place, with over 5,000 square-feet of ammenity space for residents.
As an additional part of the Wonder Bread factory renovation, the new headquarters for the Orion Federal Credit Union are being built in a portion of the old factory building. The office space will feature factory elements as design features, such as repurposing metal funnels as light fixtures.
Currently under construction, the Citizen is a mixed-use development featuring apartments and retail at a long-blighted corner near the center of Midtown Memphis. The development will feature 173 one and two-bedroom apartments as well as 10,000 square feet of retail space. A 50-year-old hotel building is being gutted to clear space for new apartments with floor-to-ceiling windows, and the old Towery office building is being replaced by a four-story podium structure with ground floor retail.
This project will mark the renovation and re-envisioning of a 1916 warehouse in the South Main Street Arts District, the epicenter of the revitalization and growth of Downtown Memphis. The hotel consists of 62 industrial-inspired rooms, two full- service restaurants and over 1,000 square feet of meeting space. Located along the Main Street trolley line, the property features Longshot, a 120-seat gastropub and music venue offering locally-brewed beers, craft cocktails and modern comfort food. On Main Street guests will be greeted at an upscale 98-seat restaurant, emphasizing fresh and locally-sourced ingredients and an exotic bar program.
EASTGATE SHOPPING CENTER
MMC has been reworking the contents of an East Memphis shopping center. Where three individual stores once stood is now one new 16,000 square-foot Tuesday Morning store. A 40,000 square-foot Burlington Coat Factory is being relocated from one end of the shopping center to another, leaving behind space for a new tenant. In addition to all of this, MMC is also updating storefront facades with fresh structure and paint, resurfacing the large parking lot, and building two new out-parcels.
