Harbortown & Mud Island
Harbor Town is an upscale neighborhood located on Mud Island, a sandbar peninsula in Memphis. It boasts stunning views of the Mississippi River, Wolf River Harbor, and the city skyline. The community’s design is centered around walkability and human interaction, making it a highly sought-after community for young professionals.
Originally an undeveloped sandbar in the late 80s, Harbor Town has transformed into a thriving planned community of 3,000 residents, known as a national case study in New Urbanism. Housing options are dense and varied, including apartments, row houses, and single-family homes.
The community is designed with front porches that provide spaces for neighbors to catch up and engage in conversations. Tree-lined streets connect residents to paved trails, public parks, and children’s playgrounds. A variety of local businesses, such as Cordelia’s Market grocery store, bars, restaurants, health and dental practices, and a gym are just a short stroll away.
Harbor Town residents can also take advantage of the recreational activities available on Mud Island, such as waterside yoga, boating, and renting or purchasing slips at the local marina. Food lovers will find a range of options, including fine seafood and steaks at Paulette’s Restaurant and burgers, beers, and happy hour specials at Tug’s Casual Grill.
