Beale Street Landing
Beale Street Landing is situated at the foot of Beale Street along the Mississippi River in Memphis, TN. The project took nearly a decade to complete at a cost of forty-three million dollars and officially opened in June 2014. The landing boasts a floating dock, complete with a helical ramp, so that riverboats such as the "American Queen" may dock at the facility. The landing features a grass rooftop, which connects to Tom Lee Park, and a unique elevator shaft that was painted to mirror the colors of the river sunset.
