Any time there is a major project mention for Memphis there is opposition. Memphis has the most underdeveloped riverfront on the Mississippi. New Orleans and St. Louis improved their riverfronts years ago. The Memphis riverfront is embarrassing. I agreee also that the library and garages on Front Street should have been torn down years ago. They are eyesores! Why are the Friends For Our Riverfront so against tall buildings? Their proposal looks boring to most who have seen it. More hotels, office space, retail and restaurants brings people which brings revenue. There is too much potential for the riverfront to not move forward with this project.
