16. Findings Pinpoint Lamar Corridor’s Troubles
- Wednesday, December 9, 2009
Anyone who has traveled along Lamar Avenue between Interstate 240 and the Mississippi state line knows how congested it can get, with a seemingly endless line of trucks driving both directions and backing up traffic.
Members of the Greater Memphis Chamber’s aerotropolis initiative now have a better idea of the corridor’s horrendous deficiencies.
Cambridge Systematics Inc., a Cambridge, Mass.-based firm that studies transportation assets and needs nationwide, late last week presented the preliminary findings of its Lamar Avenue Corridor Study to the aerotropolis initiative’s access and transportation committee.
The message is clear and not at all surprising: Lamar Avenue has a host of problems that need to be resolved if Memphis wants to continue its role as a critical link in the global supply chain.
The study, which kicked off in the summer, is addressing traffic flows and transportation needs within the Lamar Avenue corridor – the area bordered by I-240 to the north, the Mississippi state line to the south, Interstate 55 to the west and Hickory Hill to the east.
Cambridge Systematics is conducting the study in conjunction with the Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organization, the University of Memphis’ Intermodal Freight Transportation Institute and the chamber.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation assigned Cambridge Systematics to the study following a request from MPO; TDOT has an ongoing contract with Cambridge Systematics to assist local planning organizations around the state.

1.46 Acres in Commons at Dexter Lake
Cordova, TN 38018
Loan Amount: $1.2 Million
Loan Date: Oct. 2, 2008
Maturity Date: April 22, 2009
Borrower: Commons at Dexter Lake LLC
Lender: First Citizens National Bank
Details: A $1.6 million retail center with a French Quarter motif is being built in Cordova. The Commons at Dexter Lake LLC has filed a $1.2 million construction loan to build a 10,400-square-foot retail center, dubbed Vieux Carré, south of Dexter Road and west of Chickering Lane. Construction started last week. The development team bought the land from John B. Maxwell Jr., trustee for the sellers, for $334,541 and filed the construction loan through First Citizens National Bank. Commons at Dexter Lake LLC principal Nancy Waddell signed the trust deed. The center will sit on a 1.46-acre parcel near the Commons at Dexter Lake retail center and the Reserve at Dexter Lake apartments. A spokesman for the developer said the seven-bay center already has five leases signed. Tenants include a Belle Meade salon, financial planner Martin Hearn, a Crown Trophy store and a florist/gift shop. Jeff Blackledge is architect for Vieux Carré. KT Construction LLC, whose partners are Scott Turnage and Riley Kail, will be the general contractor. Turnage said the company is “stripping the lot off right now and pushing hard for the first of the year” to complete the center. “We’re going to go for kind of a hybrid French Quarter style – we’re going to be doing more of a Bourbon Street look,” Turnage said. “It’s going to be a strip center, but we’re going to try to give each space individuality, using depth and height offsets to try to give each space somewhat of a unique appearance.” More retail space will be coming to the site soon.
6075 Winchester Road
Memphis, TN 38115
Sale Amount: $1.4 Million
Sale Date: Oct. 23, 2008
Buyer: World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church Inc.
Seller: Carlyle Rock Ridge LLC
Loan Amount: $1.2 million
Loan Date: Oct. 24, 2008
Maturity Date: N/A
Lender: Tri-State Bank of Memphis
Details: World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church Inc. has bought the Hickory Ridge Mall for $1.4 million from Carlyle Rock Ridge LLC. The roughly 500,000-square-foot Hickory Ridge Mall sits on 44 acres at 6075 Winchester Road in Hickory Hill. It was damaged by a tornado during the Feb. 5 storms that ripped through the southern and southeastern areas of town. World Overcomers will retain its congregational home at the former Central Church at 6655 Winchester Road, down the road from the mall. The church bought that property in 2001 for $10 million. Church pastor Alton Williams has announced plans to turn the mall into a Christian community center, replete with a restaurant, banquet hall, theater and other services for the neighborhood. The Hickory Ridge Mall opened in 1981 to much fanfare, but it steadily declined over the years as newer malls opened in other parts of town and tenants departed. The February storm proved to be a death knell for the mall. Although the city of Memphis considered buying it and turning it into a satellite office for city services, the renovation proved too costly.
