ErinWay Shopping Center to undergo renovation
A shopping center in the heart of East Memphis will soon undergo a renovation.
Loeb Properties this week applied to do work on its ErinWay Center at 4870 Poplar. The document estimates the first phase of work will cost about $750,000.
The J-shaped center anchored by Huey’s occupies 4.1 acres with 44,487 square feet of commercial space and parking.
The strip center is bordered by Poplar to the south, St. Nick on the west and Erin Drive on the east.
“We'll be making some cosmetic and construction adjustments to this plan as we work our way around the building, and are staging the renovation in phases to work around the busy holiday shopping season,’’ Loeb Properties spokeswoman Ciara Neill said in an email to The Daily Memphian.
“In the first phase, which is just about to kick off, we'll be renovating the western side of the building around Sakura Japanese Restaurant and the European Wax Center,’’ she said. “We're currently exploring the addition of a fun splash of color on that wing of the building through an artistic installation facing St. Nick Street, and after the holidays will pick back up with construction on the south and east facades of the shopping center.’’
Architect for the work is Warren Architecture, and the general contractor is Grinder Taber & Grinder Inc.
Erin Way Shopping Center has one, 1,800-square-foot space, facing Poplar, that is available for lease.
The center was built in 1976.
