'The Clipper' Planned Downtown on FedEx Move

February 12, 2019 11:51 AM

Developers plan to build an eight-story office and hotel building called The Clipper adjacent to the Gibson Guitar factory building, the newly announced headquarters for FedEx Logistics.

The plan would build the 250,00-square-foot, modern office tower on a surface parking lot at just south of the Gibson plant across Doctor Martin Luther King.


Here’s how The Clipper website describes the building:
“The Clipper will contain 50,000 square feet of ground floor retail space for high-end restaurants, a grocer, and boutiques. The remaining 200,000 square feet will be modern, Class A office space composed of 29,500 square-foot open-floor plates and space to house 1,500 employees. Also available to tenants is a new multi-level parking garage that allows for plenty of parking for future tenants.”

The project also includes “a state-of-the-art approximate-250-key full-service hotel, flush with best-in-class food and beverage amenities, a rooftop deck, and conferencing center. The hotel will be built in partnership with Senate Hospitality, owners of the highly successful Westin Beale Street.”

The plan comes from New York-based real estate investment firm Somera Road Inc. and local partner Orgel Family LP. The FedEx Logistics move to the Gibson factory announced earlier today was a major factor for the companies’s decision to build.

“The FedEx tenancy at the former Gibson site, our market research of the supply and demand dynamic Downtown, and the continued support and commitment from our investment committee have affirmed that we truly can reimagine a block of Downtown Memphis by strategically activating and bridging this valuable corridor between Beale Street and South Main,” said Ian Ross, managing director of Somera Road Inc. “The project will be a dynamic mixed-use, transformational connector.” Continue Reading


In the past, home owners are restricted to some limited options when they are in search of the best alternatives for natural grass to be installed in their San Diego homes. Artificial grass and huge rock garden are the best options you can consider to be installed in your homes and office.

Some year's back just one variety of artificial grass is available which looks unreal. Things are getting better these days, there are quite pretty number of varieties available when it comes to installing artificial lawns with real and natural feel. This is motivating many people in San Diego to use artificial turf instead of real grass.

Artificial Turf Fields to be Built in Petaluma, CA

Artificial turf fields are on their way to Petaluma, CA. Three artificial turf fields are scheduled to be installed at a Petaluma park. Artificial turf fields will also be installed later at two high schools who are following suit.

Parents have expressed their concerns however concerning risk of bacterial infections, heat conduction, the effects of crumb rubber, and increased risk of physical injuries to players.

Oregon High School Maximizes Field Usage With Synthetic Turf

A high school in Keizer, OR, is beginning to raise money for a new sports field to be installed with synthetic turf. The high school, McNary High School, says if it raises $1 million, they'll be able to get rid of their irregular and inconvenient natural grass field which has patches of dead grass scattered across its face and replace it with synthetic turf, which will save the school district money and increase usability. The school hopes to start converting their current fields to synthetic turf this summer and to have it completed by the next school year.
