New one-story structure planned for 140 N. Main

Another new structure could soon go up on Collierville's Historic Town Square.

The town's Board of Mayor and Aldermen is slated to discuss the final site plan for the property at 140 N. Main Street at its regularly scheduled meeting on Sept. 23.

The property, which is currently being used for overflow parking, has been vacant since 2015 when a handful of buildings were demolished.

The new brick building will be nearly 5,000 square feet and one story tall. It will be located on a .41-acre lot on the east side of N. Main, between Natchez and Washington streets.

The large oak tree to the rear of the property will remain.

A two-story building was initially proposed for the lot. However, the design, which included a 13,550-square-foot structure, was ultimately changed.

A development agreement for the previously proposed building was approved in June 2017. This included off-site improvements along Main Street. However, the improvements have not been completed.

Rebuilt sidewalks and on-street parallel parking on Main Street are part of this work.
