Facts

  • Tallest building in Tennessee from 1930-1957. Surpassed by the Nashville Life & Casualty Tower.
  • It remained the tallest building in Memphis until 1965 when it was surpassed by the 100 North Main Building, which remains the city's tallest.
  • Added to National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
  • The building originally featured a stone colored exterior with a green tiled roof. The exterior was first painted white in 1957. In 1982, the facade was painted in shades of yellow and brown.
  • Efforts to renovate the now vacant office building have been complicated by a 99-year lease agreement for the land. That lease, which went into effect on May 1, 1926, will expire on April 30, 2025.
  • The name 'Sterick' comes from a combination of the last names of Wyatt Hedrick, the owner and architect, with his business partner, R.E. Sterling.
