The South Bluffs
Set on a precious site overlooking the Mississippi River, the South Bluffs has the look and feel of a classic Southern city — like Charleston, Savannah or New Orleans — with its classic architecture, mature foliage and historic details. Enlivened by the ever-present bike riders, dog walkers, strollers and joggers, it’s your gateway to the River Walk, the Memphis riverfront — and everything downtown.
The South End
Walk to the South Main Arts District, with its galleries, shops, bars and restaurants. Enjoy Trolley Nights on Fridays and shop local at the Memphis Farmers Market on Saturdays. A vibrant and diverse neighborhood stretching from the Orpheum Theater to South Main and beyond, the entire South End is enjoying a resurgence with warehouse conversions, new construction, public works projects and public transit improvements under way.
With easy access to Riverside Drive and low-traffic corridors headed east, South Bluff residents can bypass the downtown core to pick up the interstate in any direction or get to the heart of midtown in minutes.
What’s happening now?
In 2015, Henry Turley Company and our partners announced a revitalization plan for the area around Central Station that includes a new cinema, the conversion of Central Station’s tower to a boutique hotel, a redesign of the Farmers Market site and other civic improvements — all within a few blocks of the South Bluffs neighborhood. And the Main-to-Main Connector, a public works project to enhance the connection between the north and south ends of the downtown core, is well under way. It includes the conversion the Harahan Bridge to a bicycle and pedestrian bridge—creating a bikeway that will present spectacular views of Memphis and the Mississippi River, just upriver from the South Bluffs.
