Loeb Presents Renderings of New Hotel Proposed for Overton Square

Loeb Properties distributed the images after submitting a re-zoning application to the Land Use Control Board. The planning board will consider the request for approval of the planned development next month.

The yet-to-be-named hotel will rise on 1.3 acres and fill much of the surface parking lot at the northeast corner of Cooper and Trimble. The hotel will be immediately north of Hattiloo Theatre.

The hotel is designed in part to support the live performance venues of Overton Square, including Playhouse on the Square, Circuit Playhouse, Hattiloo Theatre and Ballet Memphis.

The hotel also is intended to serve travelers drawn by nearby Rhodes College, Christian Brothers University and other Midtown institutions, Loeb officials have said.

The 75,000-square-foot building will offer both rooftop and ground-floor food and beverage service, including patio tables along the Cooper and Trimble sidewalks.
