New ACBL HQ to open this spring
As most bridge players know, the ACBL sold its office building on 2990 Airways Boulevard in Memphis. We're moving six miles south to Horn Lake MS (Memphis is situated right on the Mississippi state line). The building we're moving to was finished on the outside, but not on the inside. Two doctors were building it to be a medical complex, but for some reason it fell through. ACBL got a great deal on it.
Yesterday morning, I stopped by there on my way to work and took some photos so you can see how it's coming along.
The workmen in the photo below are connecting the heating and A/C ducts:
The front half of the building will be offices and they are framed in already. The back half (part of which is shown below) will be open with cubicles:
See the power lines below? They are about to go. Part of the ACBL's agreement with the city of Horn Lake MS was that these were to be moved underground. We want our office to be beautiful, right?
