Wharton shares new idea for shuttered Peabody Place Mall
Peabody Place Mall was among the reasons I moved downtown when I came to Memphis. I saw movies there, shopped, ate.. But then it slowly died. It's hard to believe the center, built in 2001, lasted barely a decade. I got wind of a new idea from the mayor. I emailed his media folks but decided to pay a personal visit to city hall (mainly because I'm very impatient). Fortunately, the mayor was more than willing to discuss this potential plan to revive Peabody Place.
