Re: “Coliseum Repair Cost Lower Than Previous Estimate

Yes, the team of very qualified experts all had access to the previous reports. They did however form their own opinions about what it would take to reopen the arena as is was. As stated in the article we also had Code Solutions Group who was the major consultant back then on the team. We met with MCIL and included them on our team to not only meet the DOJ requirements but to go above and beyond and make the press box at the top of the arena accessible.

Re: “Strickland Announces Demolition for Blighted French Fort Hotel

He hasn't owned it for 30 years. He bought it 10 years ago right before the recession. The property will be developed.

Re: “Memphis City Council Committee Approves $2 Million for Historic Hotel Blight Remediation

The money is not going to Cogic. Cogic is selling the property for $1 to get it off of their hands and not owe fines for anti-neglect. No issue with separation of church and state.

Re: “Weekend Report: Harahan Bridge, Contract Bridge, Good Signs, Hamer, and Big Money

This article is misleading. The cost for the bridge is not $30 Million. That cost includes all of the upgrades to Main Street and connecting the bridge to Broadway.

Re: “French Quarter Inn May Become Comfort Suites

Unfortunately there are no legal design standards that they will have to abide by. The overlay only goes into effect when you are building new or tearing down 50% of the building or expanding. They are only renovating an existing building that is part of an existing planned development with little if no standards. City Council would have to demand that they meet a higher standard.
