Two buildings in downtown Memphis are undergoing major renovation for Memphis Grizzlies Preparatory Academy. These renovations will provide the school with an annex building of 4 classrooms with support spaces to be used for the newly added 5th grade of their academic program. The buildings are being leased from Calvary Episcopal Church and their team effort brings both Calvary and Grizzlies Prep to the forefront of ongoing efforts of eliminating blight in the downtown Memphis area.

Demolition is nearly complete and new construction is underway!
Both buildings (146 & 150 Jefferson Avenue) have been completely gutted of interior partitions, ceilings, plumbing fixtures, etc. The existing roof structure of 150 Jefferson was deteriorated / damaged beyond repair, was completely removed by demolition, and is being replaced with the new roof trusses shown in the following photos.
