Memphis Colleges Up for Renovations

Posted By on Tue, Jan 14, 2014 at 10:53 AM


A pair of Memphis colleges may get multi-million-dollar upgrades this year, though few details of the projects are known.

Building permits have been pulled recently for projects at both Memphis College of Art and for Rhodes College.

A building permit requested in November describes a $1.47 million project at Memphis College of Art. That project would finish out the fourth and fifth floors of the existing MCA graduate school building at 477 South Main Street, according to the permit. The college moved parts of its operations to the South Main Art District in 2010.


A building permit was pulled Monday for an $8 million renovation project at Rhodes College. The permit request did not give a fuller description of the project other than its location at 2000 North Parkway.
