Bass Pro Shops will soon begin work on a 101-room hotel at The Pyramid.

Mississippi-based W.G. Yates & Sons Construction, the contractor working to transform The Pyramid into a Bass Pro Shops destination center, was recently issued a $26.3 million permit for the project's Big Cedar Lodge hotel, including rooms, meeting space and a banquet kitchen.

In 2010, the city of Memphis and Bass Pro entered into a lease for the destination retailer to occupy the redeveloped Pyramid for an initial period of 20 years, with seven five-year renewals for a possible total of 55 years.

Since then, the city prepared the shuttered Downtown arena to be redeveloped by the Springfield, Mo.-based retailer into a tourist and retail destination attraction. Bass Pro and Yates have been handling the retailer’s portion of the work, and the project is projected to open this December.
