11605 E. Shelby Drive
Collierville, TN 38017

Project Cost: $93.5 million

Completion: August 2018

Owner: Collierville Schools

Details: Collierville leaders will break ground May 13 for the new Collierville High School.

The $93.5 million project is being built on 150 acres of land at 11605 E. Shelby Drive, near the street’s intersection with Sycamore Road, and it’s scheduled to open in August 2018.

It will be the Collierville Schools system’s only high school and will have a capacity of 3,000 students. The current Collierville High will be converted to a middle school.

The city went to market in October to sell the bonds that will finance construction. The bonds will be paid off with a 25-cent property tax hike the Collierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved last June, along with local sales tax revenue.

3720 Knight Arnold Road
Memphis, TN 38118

Permit Amount: $1.5 million

Completion: December 2017

Owner: City of Memphis

Tenant: City of Memphis Department of Property Maintenance

Details: The city of Memphis Property Maintenance Department is moving from the Overton Park area to near Memphis International Airport.

Property Maintenance recently filed a $1.5 million building permit for a new building at 3720 Knight Arnold Road, at the site of the former Walter J. Simmons public housing complex at Lamar Avenue and Knight Arnold in Southeast Memphis.

Property Maintenance will be the first department to make the move to the 33-acre site, with several other city operations and engineering departments following suit, said Antonio Adams, director of the Division of General Services.

Consolidating the departments will free up space across the city, namely at the southeast corner of Overton Park. The Memphis Zoo has eyed the lot for additional parking, and it has also been under consideration as the future home of a William Eggleston museum.

Adams said construction at the Knight Arnold location will begin in July and continue for 18 months.
