Application Date: June 2017

Owner/Tenant: First Horizon National Corp.

Details: The Memphis-based parent company of First Tennessee Bank is moving ahead with a couple of construction projects, including multimillion-dollar updates to its Downtown headquarters.

First Horizon National Corp. has filed three building permit applications totaling $4.8 million. The largest, valued at $3.1 million, calls for third-floor renovations to the corporate offices at 165 Madison Ave. One valued at $1.1 million, meanwhile, calls for renovations to the building’s second floor.

The third application, valued at $590,000, is for an addition to First Tennessee’s First Ops building at 3451 Prescott Road near Memphis International Airport. Last year the bank announced plans to add a fitness center and cafeteria to the building as part of a restructuring of its Memphis office properties.

All three permits list Linkous Construction Co. as the contractor, ANF Architects as the architect and CSA as the engineer.

In addition to the Lakeland facility, The Pet Hospitals operates six other locations, including offices in Midtown. Downtown, Collierville and Germantown.

3337 Summer Ave.

Memphis, TN 38122

1808 September Ave.

Memphis, TN 38116

Loan Amount: $20,000 and $19,000

Loan Date: June 2017

Borrower: HopeWorks and Orca Printing

Lender: Economic Development Growth Engine of Memphis and Shelby County

Details: Two Memphis businesses are set to receive Inner City Economic Development loans to improve their facilities.

The Economic Development Growth Engine finance committee voted Wednesday, June 7, to award a $20,000 loan to HopeWorks, located at 3337 Summer Ave. in Highland Heights, and a $19,000 loan to Orca Printing, located at 1808 September Ave. in Southeast Memphis. The forgivable ICED loans will help offset the costs of physical improvements to their locations.

Prior to these loans, EDGE had granted 40 ICED loans totaling a little more than $3 million, which helped sustain 175 jobs and create $8.6 million in capital investments in struggling or up-and-coming neighborhoods. The loans are funded from the closing fees of EDGE’s larger payment-in-lieu-of-taxes projects.

Land at East Parkway N.

Memphis, TN 38112

Land Use Recommendation: Rejected

Application Date: June 2017

Owner: Makowsky Ringel Greenberg LLC

Engineer: ETI Corp.

Architect: Fleming Architects

Details: The Overton Gateway, a proposed multifamily development planned by Makowsky Ringel Greenberg LLC, was rejected by the Land Use Control Board at its Thursday, June 8, meeting.

A sizable crowd of Lea’s Woods residents and representatives from various Midtown neighborhood associations showed up to the meeting to voice their opposition. Chief among their complaints were issues with parking and building heights.

Some residents said they were not opposed to developing the vacant lots that sit on either side of Sam Cooper Boulevard where it meets Overton Park, but felt as though the development in its current state did not meet the historic district’s guidelines.

Forrest Owens with ETI, MRG’s land planner, argued the height and density of the development were reasonable considering the size of the heavily traversed intersection, and that the revised plans incorporated elements of the neighborhood’s architecture and also addressed the parking issues.

The Land Use Control Board decision is a recommendation to the Memphis City Council, which still must vote on the matter.
