Overton Square Demolition Request Delayed


Buildings on the north side of Overton Square got a 60-day reprieve Wednesday night.

Fisher Capital planned to ask the Memphis City Council for approval to demolish the buildings but, after a discussion with members of Memphis Heritage, Save Overton Square, and other community groups, decided to postpone the request for 60 days.
