New entertainm­ent complex to be built at Graceland


Graceland officials say a new 200,000-square-foot entertainm­ent complex will be built across the street from Elvis Presley's former home-turned-museum.

Officials with the Memphisbas­ed tourist attraction said Thursday that the $45 million complex will include exhibits that highlight the late singer's life and career exploits in music and film. Presley died in Memphis on Aug. 16, 1977.

Graceland says the entertainm­ent complex is part of a $137 million expansion that includes the constructi­on of a $92 million hotel, The Guest House at Graceland. The 450-room hotel is set to open Oct. 27.

The Commercial Appeal reports that the new complex will replace the existing complex, which contains a car museum, restaurant­s and memorabili­a shops. Graceland says it is set to be completed in the spring of next year.
