This article is about an office building in Memphis, Tennessee. For information about the castle-like structure in Winterset, Iowa, see Clark Tower Clark Tower is a 34-story high-rise office building in eastern Memphis, Tennessee. It was completed in 1972. The building is owned and managed by In-Rel Management.
Clark Tower was developed in the early 1970s by developer William B. Clark, Sr. as part of a larger development called Clark Center. It was constructed immediately to the east of the smaller White Station Tower, also built by Clark in 1965. The original plans called for an identical twin tower immediately to the north of the existing parking garage, with another parking garage structure and a 15-story hotel further north towards Sanderlin Street. These plans were never realized, and the remaining property was eventually developed as the Sanderlin Retail Center.
The building was designed by architect Robert Lee Hall, who also designed the 100 North Main Building in downtown Memphis, as well as Patterson Hall at the University of Memphis. Construction began in July, 1970, with a "topping out" on July 9, 1971. Its last major renovation was in 2004. It continues to be leased as Class A office space - the highest available.
