MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com)-- Save the date. The grand opening for Bass Pro in downtown Memphis will be December 2014.

We don't have the exact date just yet. The city has just released a memo naming that month as the deadline for the Pyramid's transformation into the outdoor super store.

City developers have handed over the reigns. The project is now in the hands of Bass Pro.

On a wet and dreary Friday, the Memphis Pyramid sits on the edge downtown alone and empty. In over a year, it's projected to be a hub of activity.

December 2014 is Bass Pro's new grand opening date. A city of Memphis memo details the construction status.

So far, the city has been getting the Pyramid ready for a new tenant. Possession of the Pyramid was just handed over to Bass Pro on August 31.

The company submitted retail store plans for construction review this week. The next step? Choosing a contractor.

The company should do that by the end of October. Final construction is expected to be completed by next August.

It will be much more than a mega store.

The retail component is a big part of Bass Pro's plans, but there's also a hotel, a rooftop restaurant and bar, even a skyride. Glass observation decks are planned for the west and south faces of the Pyramid.
