Re: “UberEATS Entering Memphis Market

One way this will be different is that Uber drivers will already be available for it and are paid per run. Take Out Taxi had to have people on the clock just in case an order came in. Which meant that they were just hanging out (making an hourly wage) and waiting for a phone call to come in and then they would have to figure out how to best time out a delivery.
Plus in the 90s you could get pizza or chinese food delivered without a delivery charge. Now, a delivery fee is pretty common so people don't balk at paying $6 to get something better delivered.

Re: “Schweinehaus to Become Stanley Bar-B-Que

Cool. I hope they'll still keep a little of the German food on the menu.

Re: “Undocumented Tennessee Students Denied In-State Tuition

They're not asking for free education. They are asking to be able to pay in state tuition. The difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition is dramatic. Some will definitely be unable to attend college while they are in this country and working towards becoming legal US citizens.

Re: “Proposed Silos Could Obstruct Well-Known Mississippi Vista

Thanks Matty. But I actually meant a link to the "Facebook page alerting the public to ACBL's plans".
I've tried searching for it on Facebook, but am not having luck.

Re: “Building Frenzy Promises Hotel on Beale, Town Houses in Cooper Young, & More

Were the Patels the owners of The French Quarter Hotel in Midtown during its vacant run down years?
I seem to recall a plan to open a "boutique hotel" there. Then it turned into a Comfort Inn or something similar and residents became concerned about the switcheroo.

Re: “Building Frenzy Promises Hotel on Beale, Town Houses in Cooper Young, & More

I think the develop at Forest-Hill Irene and Winchester is just adding more buildings to an already existing complex. That complex was built a few years ago. I recall the developers promising that it would be something different for the area - something more modern and urban with mixed use buildings lining the streets and less units.

It looks like it's just a typical monstrously large apartment complex to me.
Memphis really needs to quit letting these giant complexes take over every area of town. There's just no way these models are sustainable over the long run. The owners put in a lot of effort for the first few years, but then they start losing tenants to the brand new complex a hundred yards away. So they quit spending money on maintenance and landscaping and lower the rents. Eventually they all look like ghettos.

Georgian Woods in Midtown is probably the only apartment complex more than 20 years old that stills holds its original charm. And it's not even that great.
