Central

The perfect home for millennials and those seeking the exciting parts of life. Central Memphis has everything to build the life you want, get involved, and live out loud.

The history of North Memphis is one of change. From bustling industries to times of struggle, to a new era of people coming together to form communities in which they could thrive.

Primarily outside of the "loop" eastern Memphis includes the Hickory Hill and East Memphis areas. Both are home to major businesses and are easily accessible through the interstate system. East Memphis offers suburban style living with a shorter commute into the city and downtown.
