Posted By on Wed, Feb 13, 2013 at 11:48 AM


Thirty-five teams have signed on to dream up ideas for vacant and abandoned lots and properties in the South Main area as part of the Downtown Memphis Commission's South Main Design Challenge.

The teams are tasked with designing new uses for the following spaces: the parking lot at Main and Huling, the former Ambassador Hotel, a vacant space at Main and Talbot, the old Russell Hardware building, the Army/Navy Park, the buffalo mural lot near the Memphis College of Art's gallery, and the Lyric Panel Lot near The Arcade. The team with the overall winning concept will be awarded $1,000.

Their ideas will be revealed during Art Trolley Tour nights throughout late winter and early spring. The first unveil will feature ideas for the Huling lot and the Ambassador Hotel and will be held on Friday, Feb. 22nd at the American Institute of Architects (515 S. Main) from 6 to 9 p.m.
