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.
