While the exact boundaries of Midtown are often disputed, the area itself is located east of downtown Memphis and to the west of the area considered East Memphis. Interstate 240 represents the western border which divides Midtown from the downtown area and the Memphis medical district. Here are some of the reasons to consider the homes for sale in Midtown.
Full of Heart
Memphis is a city known for its soul, and perhaps no area has more soul than vibrant Midtown, where many homes are being renovated to capture their original splendor in the historic Cooper-Young neighborhood. Midtown also boasts the newly improved Overton Square entertainment district and offers a location near to many of Memphis' colleges and universities.
New to midtown is something old. The old Sears building has been redeveloped into Crosstown Concourse, a mixed-use vertical urban village, where people gather to live, work and play. New businesses, restaurants, nightspots, and galleries have opened, and vintage clothing stores, coffee houses, street festivals, and art galleries featuring local artists give the area a vibrant bohemian vibe.
Midtown Memphians never have to look far for fun. A home to many restaurants, nightspots and art galleries, as well as unique vintage clothing stores and coffee houses, Midtown is never short on entertainment. Midtown also serves as home to the Brooks Museum of Art, the Memphis Zoo and Liberty Bowl Stadium, home of Memphis Tigers football. Street festivals, such as the annual Cooper-Young festival are sure to offer something fun for all ages.
Midtown boasts lots of exciting culinary and social choices. Overton Square features local favorites like Babalu, Bosco’s, Belly Acres, and Second Line. Head to Cooper-Young for favorites like Alchemy, Young Avenue Deli, Soul Fish Cafe, and Railgarten. Not to mention all the taprooms like Wiseacre, Crosstown Brewing, Memphis Made, and High Cotton Brewery.
With its historic charm, eclectic heritage, and all the food and fun you could ask for, Downtown Memphis is the perfect place to call home.
