Once a vital distribution center for the Mid-South, the 1,500,000-square-foot historic Sears building (1927) has been dormant for over 20 years. A herculean revitalization effort is now moving forward thanks to an extraordinary collaboration of local institutions. LRK is working with a non-profit arts-based organization and its partners to redevelop the 10–story building into a “vertical urban village” that integrates residential, commercial, retail, health and wellness, arts and culture, and education. The design weaves a purposeful collection of diverse tenants and varied uses into a precedent-setting mixed-use community that will serve as an anchor and catalyst for further revitalization and economic development in the surrounding neighborhood.

This home combines timeless charm with maximum modern livability and the latest in technology. The design of the open foyer and dining room limits typical wasted space. From the kitchen you are able to view the open family room, breakfast room and outdoor room beyond. Planned for today’s family, the home features an office just off the friend’s entry, his and her closets in the master bedroom with an “early morning entry” in his closet, a second bedroom downstairs, and an outdoor grilling area just off the screened outdoor room. Upstairs features a unique bunk room, a kids study, media room, and two bedrooms with walk-in closets and direct access to private bathrooms. The home makes for easy daily living with many thoughtful features incorporated, even a “back saving” raised dishwasher.
