Bass Pro Exterior Sign Work Could Begin Soon

Posted By on Tue, Nov 5, 2013 at 10:59 AM

Bass Pro Shops pulled a $16.5 million building permit Monday for signage, which signals that the beginning of some of the first exterior branding work done to the Pyramid could begin soon.

Robert Lipscomb, director of Memphis Housing and Community Development, said that having the permit will enable Bass Pro to begin choosing contractors to install all of the signs that will be on and around the Pyramid. Once the contractor is chosen, work could begin immediately, he said, calling the permit “a big deal.”

Interior construction of the building began in September after the Springfield, Missouri, outdoor retailer pulled a permit for about $40 million. The construction came after the city prepared the property and the building doing electrical, seismic, and HVAC work.

Bass Pro officials have projected the store will be complete by late 2014.
