Downtown Memphis (TN) and the Pinch District will have a new Station 1 by 2022, reports BizJournals.com.
The new station—already underway at 225 Chelsea Ave.—will be two stories and nearly 13,000 square feet, according to a building permit valued at $6 million that was recently filed by Memphis-based architecture firm BGKT Architects LLC. However, a general contractor hasn’t yet been selected, but one will be chosen from bidders on June 16.
In July 2018, ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude, purchased the site of the Station 1—adjacent to St. Jude at 211 Jackson St.—from Memphis for $1.725 million.
The new digs will replace the decommissioned Station 1 and the existing Station 6 at 924 Thomas St. It has an expected completion date of Sept. 1, 2022, and will serve Downtown and Northwest Memphis as well as the expanding St. Jude campus.
