The multimillion-dollar projects continue at the EPE Graceland compound.
A building permit valued at nearly $12 million was filed Sept. 28 for “shell & core” work at 1032 Craft Road. EPE noted, “The permit is part of the ongoing expansion at Elvis Presley's Graceland.
In 2016, we opened The Guest House at Graceland; in 2017 Elvis Presley's Memphis; in 2018 the all-new Chapel in the Woods and, in 2019 we will be opening an expanded 80,000 square feet of exhibition space.
This space was originally approved in 2016 and further community input was gathered at several town hall meetings”. In April, the Economic Development Growth Engine (EDGE) for Memphis & Shelby County approved a bond application that requested financing — not to exceed $20 million — for the planned 80,000-square-foot exhibition building.
