I'll tell ya, Knox County Mayor Tim Buchett is on a press conference roll. His spin team of Michael "Big Sexy" Grider and The Kid just issued a release, saying that the mayor will make an announcement "concerning the future of downtown's Marble Alley site" tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. at State Street between Commerce and Union Avenue.
(Hampton Inn & Suites will provide refreshments.)
Anyhoo, Josh Flory speculated a little bit about this, right smack here.
Personally, I'm guessing that someone is about to develop some residential stuff, mostly likely apartments, but possibly condos.
In the meantime, the mayor on Monday also held a press conference to tout SouthFest, a two-day long cash mob-like event.
Not that it's a big deal, but Burchett really doesn't call these things all that often. Usually he fields questions or makes announcements on the go.
