The giant, rusted replica of a glass milk bottle on top of an old dairy plant at 1039 S. Bellevue will be coming down soon as the building is demolished under the city's Neighborhood Stabilization Program.

Also included in the project, which is intended to fight blight in selected neighborhoods, is the renovation of the South Memphis Alliance Laundromat. The currently-inoperable laundromat will become the South Memphis Alliance Center for Children and Families and the South Memphis Alliance Community Laundromat and Resource Center.

The Neighborhood Stabilization Program is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The program targeted six Memphis neighborhoods for blight demolition: Frayser, Binghampton, the Vance Avenue area, Glenview, Orange Mound, and Soulsville. These areas were chosen based on their high number of foreclosures, high cost of mortgages, and heavily blighted properties.
