Re: “Commercial Appeal Building

Perfect location for a soccer specific stadium. Home of 901 fc and a NWsl team. Right next to the exciting edge district redevelopment. That's a winning combination

Re: “Gardening Group Kicked Off Vacant Land in Midtown

While this was a sad story I agree. There may be a silver lining. Memphis needs a new soccer village for 901fc usl franchise also Nwsl is expanding and looking at the Memphis market. Build a mixed-use stadium/ apts office and brewery on those 27 acres. It's a distressed area and a urban sports village would give it new life

Re: “MATA Official Says Rapid Bus Route Would Improve Whole System

This is long overdue Birmingham has broken ground on new BRT stations and have approved 10million in funding for new brt busses. Memphis needs to step on the gas with transit

Re: “Mud Island Could be Home of New Freshwater Aquarium

The city of Memphis may own this Aquarium but I'll bet anything Bass Pro will be the operator. Their Aquarium in Springfield was voted number 1# in tourist attraction.

Re: “Mud Island Could be Home of New Freshwater Aquarium

I can't help but wonder if this Aquarium is a bass pro development see wonders of wildlife in Springfield mo. This has bass pro written all over it. Also I think topgolf would be a great addition to this Aquarium idea. Being that it will close around 5pm-6. Topgolf has definite night life hours closing 1-2 am. IMO do both projects the land bridge gives accessiblility

Re: “City Unveils $160M Fairgrounds Redevelopment Plan

The city has a option on buying board of education on Avery right next to Tobey Park. The city should build a New 10,000 seat soccer specific stadium on the board property, along with new soccer fields at Tobey and a training academy. The stadium could host our 901 fc team as well as pursuing a NWSL team and team offices. Also rugby and lacrosse could be played there along with city playoffs for football and then pursue the state championship game for football this would gel with the new hotel & retail/restaurants being proposed on the fairgrounds site a bring a huge economic impact to that area.

Re: “Memphis Invited to Bid for 2024 Olympics

The world games is more of a reality for Memphis to pursue. Birmingham is hosting the 2021, they do not require to build new stadiums etc but have huge economic impacts on cities. Much more plausible & feasible to pursue. Hell if birmingham can host I know we can
