225 S. Main St. • Memphis, TN 38103

Permit Cost: $10.2 million

Project Cost: $14.5 million

Permit Date: Applied February 2014

Completion: TBA

Owner: The Orpheum Theatre Memphis

Tenant: Orpheum Theatre Memphis

Architect: The Crump Firm

Contractor: Grinder, Taber & Grinder Inc.

Details: The Orpheum Theatre Memphis has filed a $10.2 million permit with the city-county Office of Construction Code Enforcement for its Centre for Performing Arts.

The $14.5 million, two-story facility, which will offer advanced performing arts education programs, will rise at 225 S. Main St., adjacent to the Orpheum Theatre Downtown.

Grinder, Taber & Grinder Inc. is listed as general contractor. The Crump Firm is architect for the project, whose original plans called for a three-story, 50,000-square-foot facility to help alleviate The Orpheum’s overcrowding while also offering a variety of programs.

The Orpheum’s campus expansion was “re-energized” early last year due to an unanticipated lack of donor dollars.

The Memphis Development Foundation, the organization that operates The Orpheum, in May 2012 closed on its $1.2 million purchase of the 0.87-acre parking lot immediately to the south of the 85-year-old theater at 203 S. Main St. from Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division.
