Raze the Roof



Memphis lost one of its "big empties" last week with the demolition of a former service building at the old Baptist Memorial Hospital. The four-story building went out with a bang -- well, a press conference, at least, and is the first in a series of demolitions planned at the site. The main hospital complex on Union Avenue will come down in November. A 6.5-acre research park that will be operated by the Memphis Bioworks Foundation will go up in its place.
