Memphis South Main residential photos (large)

Recommended Posts

Just got back from a Memphis trip and took a bunch of pics--Downtown, SouthMain, and Midtown.

South Main is an area of Memphis that stretches for about a mile or so south of the center of downtown Memphis and is about 4 blocks wide. Originally, an area with two train stations, freight yards, rail lines, and warehouses, it's been transformed in the past ten years into a residential neighborhood, with more to come.

Later on, I'll post some pics of SouthMain's storefronts, which is actually more interesting than this stuff.

As alluded to in http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread...?threadid=78002 over 1100 new residential units are in the works in the South Main area.

Some folks in Memphis like their apartments right on the tracks :eek:

Great pics.  This has got to be one of the south's most interesting and underrated urban neighborhoods.

Thanks!

I'm old enough to remember when that neighborhood was really interesting--in the late 60's--full of mean-azzed, slick white hillbillies and black pimps. lol

Bars down there would serve you at about any old age.

In the 70's, my buds and I would stay up all night carousing the area waiting for the train to New Orleans which left at 4 AM.

Oh well, that's progress. B)
