As 2022 draws to a close, we like to look back on all we’ve accomplished this year as a team. It’s encouraging to witness Memphis’ revitalization, and it’s even more encouraging to be a part of it. Let’s take a look at our work throughout the past year.
Wolf River Greenway Phase 14A
In May 2022, the Wolf River Crossing, the largest pedestrian bridge over the Wolf River, opened to the public. Tioga provided environmental permitting and developed erosion control plans for Phase 14A, a 1.6-mile multimodal path connecting Walnut Grove Road and the Shelby Farms Greenline.

MEM Concourse B Modernization
Opened in Feb. 2022, Memphis International Airport’s Concourse B underwent a $245 million upgrade, including new and enhanced retail and restaurant options, a children’s play area, a stage for live music, and improved walkway and gate areas. Before the renovation began, Tioga completed an asbestos survey on the property.

Memphis Sports and Events Center
Tioga had the pleasure of working on the Memphis Sports & Events Center in Liberty Park, located on the former site of the Fairgrounds. During the early stages of construction, our team investigated hazardous materials on the site as a whole and among structures undergoing demolition. The Liberty Park campus will grow to include not only a 227,000-square-foot sports complex but also a mixed-use development of entertainment venues, dining, retail, hotel and apartments.

Memphis’ revitalization continues – it’s even spread north past our office’s home in the Pinch District into the Snuff District! Tioga regularly supports this neighborhood’s redevelopment through environmental site assessments on historic properties. We love seeing our city come alive!
In partnership with Turner Construction, Tioga assisted in the redevelopment of the Falls Building in Downtown Memphis. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building is planned to be converted into family apartments, complete with an arcade, billiard’s room, golf simulator, sauna and steam room.

More than a year ago, Tioga was engaged to conduct assessments and remove a UST from a property at 3393-3437 Summer Ave. and 610 National St. This redevelopment supports Mayor Jim Strickland’s Memphis 3.0 initiative, a comprehensive city development plan to be completed throughout the next 20 years. With construction recently completed, the property is now home to several businesses.
