There's a difference.
That was a government project that you referred to.
This is a private funded project, meanin the city is backin it 100%.
This week's meetings were the ignition of makin this a reality.
It aint gonna fall through.
It's GUARANTEED now!
It definitely won't take no 9 years as what you were referrin to. It'll be done, accordin to EPE tellin the CC, in about 2 years minimum and 4 years max.
Construction and redevelopment could begin as early as mid February.
That's what EPE told the council that they hope for, that I was told.
The thing that a lot of fans aren't mentionin is all the loud noises and interruptions that'll be goin on when folks visit Graceland for the next couple of year because of construction.
The HH is comin down, possibly soon. So where are folks gonna stay?
They'll eventually have to shut down parts of the current plaza to remove all the displays into the new center across the street when it opens.
No mention yet of if the planes will be indoors or out.
They should put them indoors. It aint like they aint got the money or space now, lol.
I'm pretty sure there'll be some type of Elvis themed restaurant in the new plans.
The American idol reference was that the show itself might be comin to Memphis with a possible tie-in with the new plans for elimination round or finale. Hello.....Sillerman's financial partner is Simon Fuller, who created AI.
As for the hotel, convention, etc comment.....the original plans were just a CONVENTION HOTEL, not a hotel AND convention center.
In case you didn't know, a convention hotel aint a convention center, lol
The convention center was news to everyone, includin Tom Marshall.
The new center plans is what is raisin the price now.
I don't know for certain what Silerman's gonna build NEXT to Graceland. But it's gonna be BIG as in size and price. That I do know.
I told yall a long time ago, even at the E1 forum, that all the Disney reference was more about it's world famous popularity and they wanna see Graceland get THAT big as far as popularity goes with tourism to the area.
It don't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.
I don't mind a few changes outside of graceland but no Disneyland.
A theme park is basically an amusement park with thrill rised of a theme.
A thematic, or themed attraction, can be anything that attracts folks with a theme that doesn't require rides.
Sillerman's plannin some type of hi tech museum complex. That's all I know right now.
She aint got no source, accept for emailin EPE and botherin them to get her info.
Are some fo yall not aware that they literrally lied about not buyin up homes behind Gracelnad, and now Sillerman's been buyin up houses left and right.
She aint even in memphis, and I am. So how's she gonna know what was said and what wasn't at the mettin? Think abotu that.
The reaosn I don't pass out my source' email is because I didn that once and folks harassed him and he was tellin me to chill out with what I was goin back and postin. He din't know I do that anymore.
He aint got time to check message boards to see what folks are sayin. He aint even a fan. He's mroe interested because of the impact it'll have on OUR community more than anything else.
Plus, he's related to the most powerful black family in the history of Memphis politics. If you know who I'm referrin to, then you'd understand my silence on who he is.
And btw, the changes will be monster big, nothin little or small at all. That's all I know.
I just posted proof what was happeing, can't get any more clear than that.
Presley31, The exact thing you posted says nothin about "small changes" to the area.
They even admit the rumors are true.
All they say aint true is what I've been sayin all along.
If there is a restaurant it will be where "Walk A Mile" is now, IF that 's in plans but according to what EPE has said to me no such plans for another Elvis restaurant in plans, nor did Sillerman's reps say there was either.
BTW I've not ever spoken to you on the EI forum
