Crosstown Concourse

Memphis, TN

Once a vital distribution center for the Mid-South, the 1,500,000-square-foot historic Sears building (1927) had been dormant for over 20 years. A herculean revitalization effort was completed thanks to an extraordinary collaboration of local institutions. LRK worked with a non-profit arts-based organization and its partners to redevelop the 10–story building into a “vertical urban village” that integrates residential, commercial, retail, health and wellness, arts and culture, and education. The design weaves a purposeful collection of diverse tenants and varied uses into a precedent-setting mixed-use community that has served as an anchor and catalyst for further revitalization and economic development in the surrounding neighborhood. Crosstown Concourse received LEED CS Platinum certification and is the largest historic adaptive reuse LEED Platinum certified project in the world. It also became the first project in Tennessee to be named a fitwel three-star certified community, the program’s highest rating. The fitwel certification program recognizes Crosstown for programming and amenities that increase access, equity, and wellness. Crosstown Concourse is the winner of over 30 prestigious honors, including an AIA Institute Honor Award for Architecture, CNU Charter Award, a National Trust for Historic Preservation Richard H. Driehaus Foundation National Preservation Award, and Architecture Review’s New into Old Awards Finalist.
