ca. 1927: Sears Crosstown

The Sears Crosstown Building or Sears, Roebuck and Company Catalog Distribution Center and Retail Store has been a Memphis landmark since it was built in 1927 (shown here). The revitalized art deco high-rise building has been renamed Crosstown Concourse and is entering the next phase of its life as a “vertical urban village” dedicated to healthcare, education and the arts. Additionally, the space will provide apartments, gallery space, retail shops and restaurants, a high school and other educational programming, and more.
