A building permit valued at nearly $1 million was filed for the Orpheum.
The permit submitted April 15 for “interior renovations” was valued at $986,192. The Memphis Development Foundation, which operates the Orpheum Theatre, was listed as the owner and tenant for the 203 S. Main St. submission.
Kristin Bennett, press relations manager for the Orpheum, said the permit was for the renovation of the administrative offices located above the theater. Demolition started about three weeks ago, and the project is slated to take six months.
Grinder, Taber & Grinder Inc. was listed as the contractor on the permit and The Crump Firm as the architect.
