Bringing the Neighborhood Together
South Line at Central Station is part of a revitalization project that includes the conversion of the landmark train station into a boutique hotel, a new cinema linked to the iconic Powerhouse building, enhancements to the public spaces around the Memphis Farmer’s Market and the creation of a new multi-model transit hub. The South Line apartments, set at the southern edge of the project on once-vacant land, serves to create a fully formed, interconnected neighborhood between the riverfront and South Main — and beyond.
Central Station sits on the Main-to-Main Connector at the intersection of rail, bus and trolley lines — an ideal site for transportation innovations. Henry Turley Company is partnering with the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) on the project, which is designated a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD). Our shared goal: To improve transportation services, connect communities and open the way for innovative new services such as ride- and bike-sharing. For starters, a new concourse will connect the Farmer’s Market plaza to South Main, where the new transit hub will provide access to buses, trolleys and bike rentals.
A Smaller Footprint
A walkable, bikeable, liveable community with easy access to amenities and transportation, South Line is built on repurposed land and incorporates eco-friendly features, including:
- An energy-efficient HVAC system for lower utility bills – savings of up to 30%
- Recycled materials for flooring and carpeting
- Low-VOC paints
- High grade AcoustaMat and insulation between the floors and walls to lower noise levels and conserve energy
- Energy-efficient appliances
Putting Down Roots
With the Farmer’s Market at your doorstep and a raft of community gardens right outside the South Line gates, we’re putting down roots. We’ve planted fruit trees on the grounds so residents can pick their own, and a new crop of oaks to enhance the landscape for years to come. Our vision—to bring Central Station and the surrounding neighborhood back to life for another 100 years.
