Pinch District Public Engagement and Visioning

The success of the Bass Pro project and the excitement surrounding the proposed expansion and investment by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and ALSAC, provides an opportunity to reimagine and revitalize the Pinch District. The City of Memphis and Shelby County Government have begun a process to invite residents, property owners, and other community stakeholders to offer input on a vision for the Pinch District. The City of Memphis Division of Housing and Community Development (HCD), Memphis and Shelby County Office of Planning Development (OPD), and the Downtown Memphis Commission (DMC) are serving as the planning team coordinating engagement around the vision for this area.

The Pinch is a historic district located on the north end of Downtown Memphis roughly bordered by the Wolf River Harbor on the west, I-40 on the south, Danny Thomas Boulevard on the east, and A.W. Willis Avenue on the north.
