Brian Hill, developer of Silo Square in Southaven, Mississippi, is bringing an old-town feel to the center of the city and building unique spaces for businesses.Hill tells ‘Wake Up Memphis’ with Robyn Walensky Southaven provides a special setting for the project.
“Southaven provides a unique opportunity to do something like this because it was developed as a suburban town in the 1960s,” he tells ‘Wake Up Memphis,’ “so Southaven never had a town center, and with the population as large as it is and continuing to grow, I thought it would be great to have a downtown or a town center for the city of Southaven.”
The area will transport visitors to a simpler time.“Architecturally, the buildings are built to look like they were pieced together over time,” he tells Walensky. “It’s designed to look like an old town.”
Already leasing space restaurants, such as a salon and a dental office. The current open businesses include Magnolia House, Salon Haven, Slim Chickens and Ultimate Gifts.
“We will have absolutely everything here,” Hill says, “the concept behind a mixed-use development is you can live here, you can work here and you can play here.”
