St. Jude seeks permits for largest project in Memphis history
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has filed for permits to construct the largest project by dollar amount to be done in Memphis history. The nonprofit filed a construction permit with the city and the Shelby County Division of Planning and Development to erect two 15-story towers on its campus. The first is a $40 million outpatient clinic building while the second is a $34 million clinical office building. Combined, the two buildings will be valued at $1 billion, making it the largest project in city history. The towers are part of St. Jude’s larger five-year, $12.9 billion strategic plan that will also bring 2,300 new jobs to the area. St. Jude has also set aside another $1.3 billion for other renovations and construction, including Domino's Village and smaller projects.
