BTH: Downtown Memphis Commission President on Local Developments

Many local restaurants and retail establishments have been hit hard by COVID-19. Despite the pandemic and its economic casualties, the President and CEO of Downtown Memphis Commission (DMC) Paul Young says that no major local projects and developments have ceased; all are looking to advance. Young also says "investment capital is still flowing" and that investors are keeping a keen eye on post-pandemic numbers. 


Young joins host Eric Barnes and Daily Memphian reporter Bill Dries for this week’s WKNO-TV Behind the Headlines. Young talks about proposed and existing local development projects, such as the Loews Hotel and Hyatt Centric.


In addition, Young discusses the DMC's goals for the future.
