It’s all about asking the right questions.
We look for projects that make the city better. To us, better means creating a more complete, complex offering of real estate choices that contribute to a more fully realized community and city. We don’t ask — “What kinds of projects are making money?” Instead, we ask, “What is not being done that would help make this a better city?” Then, once we’ve identified a project, we ask, “How can we find a way to make this project profitable so that we can sustain our enterprise and attract others to join and expand on what we’re doing?” The answers we find serve to build upon the texture and fabric of our community.
We began our work back in the seventies, when Memphis had virtually no downtown housing; it had no loft apartments; the concept of New Urbanism did not exist and no one was developing diverse, mixed income communities in downtown Memphis. Today, our South Bluffs, Harbor Town and Uptown communities are thriving neighborhoods. Our residential properties range from urban lofts to repurposed historic buildings in downtown’s core to new properties in the burgeoning South End. And we continue to work to bring new options to Memphis — that enhance our city, build community and forge connections.
