The proposed plan to renovate Southbrook Mall was delayed for another two weeks at the Memphis City Council meeting on Tuesday (April 1st) and the management team for the mall's owners, Southbrook Properties, took the development in stride.
The team's spirits were bolstered earlier in the day during a probing session by the council's Economic Development Committee (EDC) that seemed to point toward a decision that eventually would be in the group's favor.
"I'm happy. We all are. We have to be," said Southbrook Properties Chairman Willie Harper, who huddled outside of City Hall with team members Cherry Davis, Jerry Johnson, consultant Greg Grant and mall tenant Coleman Thompson.
