It wasn’t long ago that the Cherokee Arms Apartments complex in Midtown was on the market with a note of “in need of repair.”

But thanks to Memphis native and current Los Angeles resident Dana Gabrion, the three-story complex will soon breathe new life to 1508 Madison Ave. Under the entity Gabrion Properties LLC, she acquired the 30-unit, Class C investment-grade multifamily building for $455,000 in fall 2010 and hopes to have it ready for occupancy come June.

15. Back to Life -

A new chapter is about to be written in the story of a historic Memphis neighborhood once populated by statesmen, land barons and wealthy cotton merchants.

Area stakeholders have several projects in the works to breathe new life into Victorian Village.

16. Square Deal Undone -

A facelift has been in the works for about a year for a Midtown landmark that long ago succumbed to the real estate equivalent of jowls and wrinkled skin. But after months of planning, it now appears the proposed nips and tucks for Overton Square, a roughly 10-acre hodgepodge of shops, restaurants and a movie theater, won't be happening after all.

17. City Launches Effort To Reopen Historic Homes -

Two of the most historic structures in the city shuttered several years ago because of budget cuts are one step closer to reopening.

The city of Memphis is looking for a private management entity to operate and market the Mallory-Neely House, a 25-room mansion at 625 Adams Ave. built in 1852, and the Magevney House, a small clapboard cottage at 198 Adams Ave. built in the 1830s.

20. Shell’s Concert Season Begins Thursday -

It was built for less than $12,000 in the 1930s by the city of Memphis and the Works Progress Administration.

But to relaunch the Levitt Shell at Overton Park – which the city closed a few years ago after years of inactivity and disrepair – it took a $1.3 million renovation plus the addition of new equipment, volunteers, staff, an office space and much more. That effort was years in the making, and it culminates Thursday night with the kickoff of the new shell’s inaugural concert season.

21. Visionary Architect Leaves Impact On Memphis Design -

Almost as soon as friends and colleagues of Alfred Lewis Aydelott start talking about him, they make a point of describing him as the father of modern architecture in Memphis.

They use words such as visionary, demanding, influential and opinionated. It’s a mix of traits that no doubt was essential for the man who not only designed several prominent buildings in the city – such as Memphis City Hall, the Downtown federal building and Immaculate Conception High School – but who also attracted bright, young architects to the area during his career.

22. Former Library Exec Named Interim Literacy Council Head -

Representatives of the Riverfront Development Corp. will return to the Memphis Landmarks Commission next week for one of the last approvals needed by the RDC, which is a certificate of appropriateness.

26. Would-Be Brewery Developers Hit Eject Yet Again -

The Tennessee Brewery is one of the most prominent "big empties" in Downtown Memphis, and it's going to stay that way for at least the near future.

Following another unsuccessful attempt by an anonymous group to buy and refurbish the long-vacant landmark, the broker who's been negotiating to sell the property said it's now going to be taken off the market indefinitely.

27. Real Estate Historian's Departure Signals Tightening Market -

28. After Several Fizzled Proposals, Tennessee Brewery Finds Another Suitor -

Maybe the fourth time will be the charm for the Tennessee Brewery.

Over the past three years, three separate development groups have tried to transform the brewery's fortress-like structure into hip living spaces, only to throw in the towel. Now, another potential buyer has emerged with an interest in redeveloping one of Downtown Memphis' most iconic structures.

29. As Latest Development Plans Collapse,Some Say Brewery Ultimately Faces Demolition -      For at least the third time in three years, a group of developers buoyed by the prospect of transforming the Tennessee Brewery from an aging urban castle into upscale living space has thrown in the towel.

In 1906, Edward Boyle, a member of the well-known Memphis family of developers, helped fashion a grand boulevard through the Central Gardens neighborhood.

Scores of influential Memphians have lived in the Midtown community's bungalows, foursquares and Tudor estate homes, including former Memphis City Council member Florence Leffler and federal judge Julia Gibbons.

31. Bed-and-Breakfast Owners to Seek Rezoning for Sale, Expansion -

When Steve and Katherine Mistilis decided to sell the bed-and-breakfast they've operated in Cordova for about 11 years, they made an irksome discovery.

Even though they'd always been given a business license to operate their B&B, an off-the-beaten path, 3,000-square-foot brick home originally built more than a century ago, somewhere along the line the zoning for their land had been changed. Which means using their property for a B&B apparently is not permitted.

32. To Shell and Back -

The outdoor Memphis amphitheater where a young Elvis Presley played his first show in 1954 is a shell of its former self.

Its rows of wooden benches are begging for a fresh coat of paint, metal buildings around the stage have become eyesores and the whole thing long has been in need of structural repairs. Standalone panels that display community notices and events still include a faded program schedule for 2004.

33. Historic District Awaits Nod from State Historical Commission, Parks Service -

Like the small child among a brood of overachievers, the Southern Railway Industrial Historic District, which sits about one mile east of Memphis' bustling Downtown, might be easy to overlook.

But for a variety of reasons - such as facilitating new development in the mostly industrial ward as well as spotlighting its historic character - the neighborhood is on its way to being added to the National Register of Historic Places.

34. The Importance of Being Burnished -

In January 1882, a flamboyant 28-year-old writer who would eventually set the Victorian-era literary world aflame arrived in New York City to kick off a 12-month series of speaking engagements in the United States.

35. Despite Recent Fire, Court Square Projects Move Forward -

As intense as it was, the Oct. 6 early morning blaze that damaged three Downtown buildings overlooking Court Square apparently didn't extinguish plans to transform them into a $45 million mixed-use development.

36. If Plans Pass Final Muster, Big Changes on Tap at Tennessee Brewery -

What a difference a PR team, higher elevation, more condos, a bigger price tag, a new dog walk, fresh landscaping, restaurant and retail space make.

When it comes to the current set of plans for redeveloping the ornate, castle-like Tennessee Brewery in Downtown Memphis, the latest team of developers and investors has picked up where their forerunners either couldn't or wouldn't go. And those extra touches may have finally assured the success of the project, which has been tried several times over the years.

37. Local Properties Vie For Historic Register -

They've all outlasted at least 10 U.S. presidents, Sun Records and suburban sprawl, in addition to pre-dating the creation of an Interstate system, FedEx and the rebirth of Downtown Memphis.

Not a bad record for the group of Memphis properties that could be the latest local additions to the National Register of Historic Places.

38. Pinch District Gets Pinch of Renewal with New Condos -

Downtown's Pinch District is about to get a big dose of economic activity.

The $9 million Pinch Place, the $5 million Harbor Lights and the $2.1 million Turning Pointe condominium developments are in varying stages of construction on a block bounded by Auction, North Main and Front streets and North Parkway.

39. Preservation Series Almost Here -

Today, Memphis neighborhoods like Annesdale-Snowden, the charming, tree-lined community surrounding Lamar Avenue and Bellevue Boulevard, are symbols of another time.

In the 1850s, Dr. Samuel Mansfield built a 200-acre estate there on the outskirts of Memphis, which he later sold to a Col. Robert Brinkley. Brinkley gave the property's Italianate mansion to his daughter as a wedding present, and her son, Robert Brinkley Snowden, later built a home of his own in the area.
