Parcels at Concourse is part of a vertical urban village...a completely new concept in Memphis. At Parcels, your neighbors are agents of good health, healing, arts, and education. You live above restaurants and retail, art galleries and performance spaces, fitness facilities and wellness centers. Your front and back yard consist of open-air plazas and gardens, that serve as gateways connecting you to the surrounding community.
Inside, the connecting corridors and atria have been designed as dynamic architectural environments, inspiring movement and exploration through the space. Brick walls, exposed structure, concrete floors, and natural light are intrinsic to Parcels at Concourse. These characteristics, paired with found building relics, natural finishes, creative use of building materials, and thoughtful space planning, further enhance Parcels environment and ensure a uniquely textured lifestyle.
I love this place! I moved in last year from out of town and it was a really great place to be introduced to Memphis. They are pet friendly which is nice, and they just added a dog park. It has great places to eat and there are always things going on in the building. The staff is helpful when I need them, and they send email updates for different events.
I do not recommend living here. The walls are covered in paint that comes right off onto you. If you do not hire a cleaning service to professionally clean your apartment, you will be charged a hefty cleaning fee when your lease is up. This also doesn't include the numerous morning (test) fire alarms, no parking during the day, etc.
I have lived in the building for two months and I absolutely love living here. Yes its on the more expensive side but I think we get a lot for it too. 24 hour security, ymca, restaurants, good location, etc. Its all brand new and I think my apartment is very nice with good materials and features for a rental unit. This building is absolutely unique and a model for what redevelopment can accomplish. You will not find anything else like it in Memphis (or many other cities of similar size).
There are a few cons: I have heard that parking can be tight during the day. I personally havent experienced this because I rent a space in the secured basement parking. I have heard minor construction noise during weekdays. Its not terrible but noticeable. They also disclose this when you sign the lease. Fortunately, most of the construction is over now. The fire alarm went off at 6:30am on January 1st but I think that can happen in a building this large. Other reviews say its happened multiple times. Ive only heard it once since Ive lived here so Im not concerned.
Wonderful idea however the management is horrible, so would only recommend living here if the other aspects of crosstown (restaurants/shops) are worth it for you, as considering the price of rent the apartments were made poorly, firealarm a go off constantly, parking is a nightmare unless you're willing to pay even more, and management makes nothing easy and are very bad communicators, they seem to be under the impression that living here is an honor to live here so does not need to be a habitable environment.
This is a work in progress but boy is the progress awesome so far! Security is great grocery store The Curb has the best butcher and meat I have come across. The restaurants are very good. This place is going to be near impossible to an apartment in soon hurry.
