About One Beale
One Beale is a proposed high rise hotel, condominium and office building in Memphis, Tennessee. It is expected that construction will begin in mid 2008 and end in 2010. 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. The tower was to feature 168 hotel rooms and 159 condos. The tower also featured 75,000 square feet (7,000 m) of class A office space. The architectural firm working on this project was Hnedak Bobo Group, Inc. In August 2006, Gene Carlise revised his proposal to include two towers. 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 m) of Class A office space, and 70,000 sq ft (6,500 m) of retail, commercial and meeting space.
