A new partnership between Jackson and Memphis developers promises to bring long-anticipated progress to the Farish Street Historical District, although it may be several more weeks before the group is ready to talk about specifics.

Jackson developer David Watkins said he is making progress in talks about joining with Memphis-based Performa Entertainment Real Estate to complete the entertainment district project on Farish Street.

“This is a very important project, and I want it work,” he said. “If I can’t make it work, I won’t get involved.”
