Just a Suggestion...

From The Memphis Commercial Appeal's Viewpoint Section published Sunday August 26th, 2007:

The week's question-What do you think investor Andy Cates should do with the Sears Crosstown building in Midtown?

"The Sears building is an architectural treasure that caps off the north end of the art "belt" that winds through Midtown, starting at Cooper and Young. It definitely needs to be developed into some place that everyone can enjoy.
I propose mixed-use, with a heavy emphasis on an arts facility. How about incorporating The Junkyard-a youth museum built out of found objects constructed into climbable sculptures? Think City Museum in St. Louis, a widely popular destination museum that rehabbed the neighborhood and brought fine arts to the masses in simple terms.
