Crosstown Concourse is now open at 1350 Concourse Avenue.
Crosstown Concourse is the 1.5 million sq ft former home of the Sears distribution center in the Crosstown neighborhood of Memphis, TN. Building on three of Memphis’ strongest community assets— arts, healthcare, and education— Crosstown Concourse has been developed as a mixed-use vertical urban village, consisting of a purposeful collective of commercial, residential, and retail partners.
The mixed-use redevelopment includes restaurants and retail, a small grocery, a fitness center and health clinics, a charter high school, a contemporary art center, commercial offices, and 265 loft-style apartments. This project has created 800+ jobs and will generate more than $37 million in new wages annually.
Kemmons Wilson Companies oversaw the project in collaboration with architecture firms Looney Ricks Kiss and Dialog (Vancouver) on design. Grinder Taber Grinder is the general contractor.
The founding tenants for the Crosstown Concourse project are: Church Health, Crosstown Arts, Gestalt Community Schools, Methodist LeBonheur, Memphis Teacher Residency, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, A Step Ahead Foundation, CBU, City Leadership, Crosstown Back Institute, The Excel Center, The Poplar Foundation, The Pyramid Peak Foundation, Southern College of Optometry, and Teacher Town USA.
