The question isn't will Apollo go through with the Sillerman-proposed expansion and overhaul or a revised version. It's more about how big will it be? Just for the record, Sillerman's proposal wasn't originally his idea. It was that of Lisa and Priscilla's that had been on the drawing board with EPE since Graceland opened. A new visitors center, museum, and hotel all on the same side as Graceland have all been on their agenda and wishlist for years. The setback was that the money just wasn't there at the time, and when it finally looked to be the economy fell which set it back even further.
As I have said on here already, EPE/CKX/Apollo was NOT about to invest millions upon millions into a run down neighborhood which has a medium crime rate that is growing until the city did its part. That was not going to happen and the city council knew it which forced their hand to make the approval. Now that the improvements have been officially approved with no more holdups or setbacks in the way, and a groundbreaking date has even been set to begin physical revitalizing, then we can now look for EPE to finally make the renovations public and not just to get free publicity like they have for the past 5 years by making false announcements to gain attention.
