BTH: Development in Downtown Memphis

This week on Channel 10’s Behind the Headlines, the President and CEO of Downtown Memphis Commission, Paul Young, joins host Eric Barnes and Daily Memphian reporter Bill Dries.

When local developers are looking to start a new project, the typical starting point — a year ahead of time — is a visit to the Downtown Memphis Commission.

President Paul Young says developers often are seeking the best incentives, which can be highly important and can make or break a project. 

Young discusses recent developments in Memphis, including some of the challenges and success stories. In addition, Young talks about public housing and its effect on Downtown.
