$2 million promised to revive work on Beale Street Landing

The Commercial Appeal [Link]
By Amos Maki, April 27, 2010

The Riverfront Development Corp. has raised $1 million from private sources and the city’s Division of Housing and Community Development will provide another $1 million to continue construction on the troubled Beale Street Landing project.

The $2 million will allow the city to finish the docking facility and the building housing a restaurant and retail space. The RDC would likely still need another $7 million to finish the project as planned.
