One Beale is a proposed high rise hotel, condominium and office building in Memphis, Tennessee.[1][2]


Original proposal

In December 2005, Gene Carlisle proposed a building at Beale Street and Riverside Drive in Downtown Memphis. The first phase of One Beale was a $150 million dollar, 27 story condominium and hotel standing at 313 ft (95 m) tall.[3] The tower was to feature 168 hotel rooms and 159 condos. The tower also featured 75,000 square feet (7,000 m2) of class A office space.[4] The architectural firm working on this project was Hnedak Bobo Group, Inc.

Second proposal

In August 2006, Gene Carlise revised his proposal to include two towers.[5] The Northern tower is to be a 30 stories tall and 435 ft (133 m) making it the tallest building in Memphis over 100 North Main which is 430 ft (130 m) tall. The southern tower is to be 27 stories tall. Together the proposal is for approximately 250 hotel rooms, 150 condos, 70,000 sq ft (6,500 m2) of Class A office space, and 70,000 sq ft (6,500 m2) of retail, commercial and meeting space.[6]

The actual official height of the northern tower has been a source of some debate, as some stories and articles place the northern tower at 468 ft (143 m) instead of 435 feet (133 m).[7] There has been no official word from Gene Carlisle or the developers confirming the official height of the northern tower.

The project is now being retooled due to the state of the US economy.[8]

Within days of the second proposal in August 2006, nearby residents of the Waterford Plaza spoke against the project. Lauren Peek, property manager for Waterford Plaza and Pat Tigrett stated the new proposal would block their view of the Mississippi River, increase traffic in the area, and decrease available parking.[7][9] The Memphis Land Use Control Board put the proposal on hold for 30 days as a result.[10]

On September 15, 2006 Land Use Control Board of Memphis unanimously approved the proposal for the tower thus ending the hold.[9] The proposal must still be approved by the Memphis City council, Lauren Peek stated she would oppose the proposal when it faced the city council.

Gene Carlise responded to the opposition, "At the end of the day we're confident we'll be a great neighbor and we'll raise the property values in their part of the world. Of course, you can't please everybody and we've tried very hard to do that. We're very sensitive to this neighborhood. We've been there for a long time, almost 30 years."[9]

On October 18, 2006 the building was unanimously approved by the Memphis City Council. The Carlise Group and the Waterford Plaza association proposed multiple compromises to resolve the aforementioned opposition.[11]

Hotel Component

On April 30, 2007 it was announced the hotel component of the structure would be a $55 million dollar Hyatt Regency Hotel. The hotel will be 240 rooms, down from the proposed 250. The hotel would contain spa and treatment facilities, two restaurants, a 7,500-square-foot (700 m2) ball room, and a swimming pool on the 10th floor. Interestingly, during the same announcement the amount of Class A office space was cited as 29,500 sq ft (2,740 m2), seemingly contradicting prior announcements for 70,000 sq ft (6,500 m2).[12]
