Unattractive I-40 overpass area to get spruced up | Public Spaces
The Downtown Memphis Commission plans to enhance the I-40 overpass area along Main Street.
O.T. Marshall Architects came up with a preliminary design plan that includes creative underpass lighting, public art, and landscaping enhancements. The firm was hired using grant money from Housing and Community Development's Neighborhood Development Program.
According to the DMC, the area will become a much more appealing gateway to the Pinch District. The area along North Main is currently undergoing a renaissance thanks to the redevelopment of The Pyramid.
