Market Studies & Data

The Memphis Medical District consists of 700+/- acres of world class medical institutions. Over the next three to five years, these institutions have projected that an additional 5,000 – 6,000 new jobs will be created as the Medical District continue to grow. With this growth, demand for housing and retail services increases proportionately within the Medical District. Current market conditions are unable to support growth potential in both the housing and retail sectors of the market.

MMDC has market studies, data, and a host of information for developers and businesses considering the District. We are happy to provide more information for specific data requests.

Retail Market Study

The retail market study provides projected supportable retail development by industry type within the Medical District.

Residential Analysis

The residential analysis study provides quantitative market information for the housing market inclusive of housing type (single, multi family, rental/ownership) and projected supportable development.



The small stuff matters.  Small-scale projects offer a huge opportunity to strengthen our neighborhoods.
