Re: “Beale Street Landing: Not on Time, Not Within Budget

Urbanut:
You obviously don't understand Millennium Park. It's an urban park, alongside a storied and architecturally magnificent boulevard. Pedestrians and tourists were drawn to the area long before Millennium Park existed.

I recently visited Memphis, on a beautiful fall day, and walked down to the Riverfront via Beale Street. Not a soul in sight.

It's about proximity. As far as I can tell, there's no impetus for tourists or Memphians to explore that stretch of no man's land -- with or without an architecturally interesting boondoggle. I wish I could say I was enthusiastic about your civic project but the reality is that I was put off by the crumbling sidewalks, the filth and the isolation.
