Overton Square

Although once one of Memphis’ most popular entertainment districts, many of the shops and restaurants in Overton Square have been vacant for years. The master plan reinvents the area as a theater district, preserves the neighborhood’s original character, renovates existing retail buildings and calls for a new parking garage, housing, retail and restaurants. A prominent intersection is also being reconfigured to be more pedestrian and cyclist friendly. As construction nears completion, Overton Square is enjoying a strong resurgence in leasing.
