As re-development work continues on the historic Tennessee Brewery building, a brand new building may soon rise from the ground right across Tennessee Street.
The developers of the Tennessee Brewery District will bring their plans for the new building — a parking garage and mixed-use apartment building — to the Downtown Memphis Commission’s Design Review Board next week.
The garage is slated to be a four-and-a-half-story structure with 358 parking spaces. Entry to the garage will be from the south on Mina Alley. The garage also has 1,320 square feet of leasable space.
The west end of the garage will be wrapped with an apartment building called the Bottle Shop. It is planned to be four stories high with 15 residential units that total 13,796 square feet. The residential part of the building also has 3,638 square feet of leasable commercial space on the ground floor.
The new building is part of the larger Brewery District development project, which includes the following plans:
- The Tennessee Brewery building will be renovated into 58 residential units on seven floors, a gym, and a lobby with a total of more than 50,000 square feet of rentable office and commercial space.
- The Wash House will be built on the property adjacent to the Brewery’s north side. That six-story building will have 90 residential units and a total of more than 72,000 square feet of rentable space.
- The parking garage and the Bottle Shop apartment building.
Here are some examples the developers gave of similar styles and materials they hope to use for the garage and Bottle Shop:
