Chattanooga-based High Point Climbing and Fitness has submitted plans with development officials to open a Memphis location adjacent to Christian Brothers High School in East Memphis.

According to the plans, High Point Memphis LLC plans to erect a 31,600-square-foot rock climbing facility on a 2.7-acre tract of land that backs up to CBHS’ baseball field near Humphreys Boulevard and Walnut Grove Road.

In a letter of intent, engineer Michael Rogers with Fisher & Arnold Inc. informed Office of Planning and Development officials that High Point Memphis plans on closing on the property soon.

“Please note that at the time of the application, the applicant, High Point Memphis LLC, has not yet purchased the property, but is listed as owner as they will be closing on the property within the next couple of weeks,” Rogers said.

According to the Shelby County Assessor of Property, the site was appraised for $548,800 and is currently owned by BIC H Partnership, a Boyle Investment Co. subsidiary.

High Point’s application will be reviewed by the Land Use Control Board during its Sept. 14 meeting.
