Midtown Overview

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 gives the area a vibrant bohemian vibe.

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.
