Elvis building renovated

November 23, 2002|From Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The former public housing project where Elvis Presley lived as a teenager is undergoing a major renovation.

The former Lauderdale Courts will become Uptown Square, a 347-apartment complex with rent-subsidized and nonsubsidized apartments. The site is several blocks north of the downtown business district.

A plaque noting that Presley's family lived at Lauderdale Courts -- and that Elvis practiced his guitar in the basement laundry room -- went on display this week. The Presleys lived at the project from 1949 to 1953.
