75. Our Piece of the Pie -

The Pie Factory condominiums - the most exciting new housing development between New York and Philadelphia streets - currently are being built on Young Avenue in Memphis. These condominiums are being built on the former site of the Keathley Pie Factory, a factory started in the 1940s that produced fried pies and assorted snack foods. The factory flourished through the '50s, '60s and '70s, eventually being sold. Production facilities were then moved elsewhere. The building stayed vacant for several years, fell into disrepair and ultimately became a blight on the neighborhood and home for petty crimes, vagrants and drug dealers. Three years ago, BDJ Partners purchased the property with the objective of turning it into a residential and commercial development. Through use of programs offered by the Memphis and Shelby County Division of Housing and Community Development, the partnership was finally able to turn what had been viewed as a marginal project at best into a viable endeavor. Those programs assisted with the demolition of the old building and some of the infrastructure of the new construction, without which the project would not have proceeded.
