It’s impressive, but gonna need to increase the population or else there won’t be enough people to fill the jobs. 

I met a family, at the Asian Night Market, from Indiana that recently moved to Memphis and the husband will be working at Blue Oval City and his wife is a teacher that will be teaching at MSCS. I don't think the people will be a problem, because the jobs will bring them to the area.. This couple has definitely drunk the Memphis water, because they are spell bound by the city. It's events like the Asian Night Market, Veganfest. Women in Memphis Musicfest etc that help to showcase Memphis, as well as gathering spots like the Ravine, Railgarten, Loftin Yard, and the Carolina Watershed and Overton Square. I think we have capable leadership that can guide us through the coming growth.

That's good to hear.  From all different sources, I've heard/read that the Asian Night Market was an overwhelming success.  Hopefully Blue Oval city and other projects will spur more development that can give the metro area a big boost in growth.

The Standard Germantown, the new name for the Billy Orgel-led Carrefour redevelopment, is continuing to progress and has now filed its final plans to begin work in earnest on the primary residential portion of the project.

CRE Devco Germantown LLC's massive mixed-use development filed the final plans for the second phase with the Germantown Planning Commission. The plan will be discussed at the Commission's SmartCode Review Committee meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 16.

These developments still lack a true public walkable domain.  But its a start.

Yeah, it's just like an isolated pocket of walkability, but at least it looks nice and is a definite improvement.

This was not on my 2024 bingo card. I'm skeptical of everything this man touches, but I hope it ultimately benefits the city.

Why?   He has created the top electric car company and top private space flight companies in the world.  Also, achieved the ability for someone to control a computer mouse with their thoughts.
