About Us

 

Harbor Town is a charismatic neighborhood filled with nature trails, ponds, and walking trails that elegantly connect the town’s houses and businesses. The marina, located in Harbor Town’s backyard, has over 50 boat slips available to residents. Uniting homes and locally owned businesses, like grocery stores, restaurants, and salons, in our neighborhood, you’ll find that leaving the island is rarely a necessity.

Linked to downtown Memphis by a bridge that was completed in 1987, the island is easily accessible from the busy city streets, but also uniquely self-contained. Memphis’ central business district is visible from the island and provides urban reference for the village-scale community. The initial arrival into Harbor Town reveals a picturesque view of the marina and yacht club, as well as several waterfront homes known as “The Point”. The town is organized around a traditional layout of intersecting boulevards, oriented east to west. These charming streets are lined with trees, foliage and ponds that help define the various areas of single and multi-family homes and the commercial district, reinforcing strong connections to the two rivers.

Harbor Town is one of the nation's most fully developed and successful Traditional Neighborhood Developments (TND). Located on Mud Island adjacent to downtown Memphis, Harbor Town contains 500 houses, a shopping district, a small private school, and several town greens. Its streets are restrained; its architecture is classic and pure; its master plan seamlessly integrates public buildings and private spaces. ??Harbor Town is filled with nature trails, ponds, and walking trails that connect throughout the town.

The mixed-use aspect is coming together wonderfully: You can stay on the island if you wish because the support services are there, which cuts down on the number of car trips you have to take.The careful thought that went into Harbor Town during its inception has paid off.??Linked to Memphis by a bridge that was completed in 1987, the island is easily accessible from downtown but is also uniquely self-contained. Memphis' central business district is visible from the island and provides an urban reference for the village-scale community. The initial approach to Harbor Town will reveal the marina and yacht club as well as a group of homes built on an area that overlooks the marina and is known as "The Point." The village is organized around a traditional street grid that is intersected by a series of diagonal boulevards oriented east to west. The boulevards help define the various single-family, multifamily, and commercial neighborhoods and reinforce strong connections to the two rivers.

Mud Island, a peninsula that jetties into the Mississippi River, is home to more than 5,000 residents. Since its first homes were built in the early 90's, Mud Island has grown into a tight-knit community with a mix of housing ranging from riverside mansions to affordable apartment living. Two marinas line the harbor, and Mud Island River Park, which includes an outdoor amphitheatre and one of the country's few river-themed museums, is also located on the Island.

Mud Island's first single-family home residential community, Harbor Town, is regaled as a nationally acclaimed planned urban development. Among the gardens, fountains and tree-lined paths of this prestigious community, is a retail center, a grocery store, a montessori school, bi-lingual daycare and a wellness and primary health care center. A beautifully maintained system of green boulevards and park spaces connect this master-planned community.

North of Harbor Town, several other communities serve a variety of housing needs. Residents in these single-family, condominium, and apartment communities all enjoy easy access to the four-mile Greenbelt Park and Downtown's restaurants, attractions and amenities.
