The idea behind the Jackson Walk development was to create a healthy, walkable community that brings Jackson together by forging a connection between downtown and the historic Lambuth neighborhood. Honored with a slew of awards and recognized by the Urban Land Institute in 2014 as one of the nation’s top thirteen new developments centered on health and wellness, Jackson Walk exceeds expectations.
Anchored by a LIFT Wellness Center, it’s the kind of place where you can walk or bike to get where you’re going and there are plenty of places to go — the revitalized downtown and the neighborhood shops; to hear live music at the AMP or enjoy a street fair; to picnic in the park or shop at the Farmer’s Market.
The neighborhood itself has a charm all its own, with traditional Bungalow, Queen Anne and Charleston style single-family homes, tree-lined streets and the cars tucked away in small lots and behind buildings. Jackson Walk brings a whole new meaning to the concept of living well.
