Southaven developer proposes square deal for growing suburb
Jacob Steimer | Reporter | Memphis Business Journal
In 1970, Southaven was an unincorporated, 9,000 resident town. It was so sleepy that it lacked even a McDonald's.
By it's incorporation in 1980, about 16,000 people called it home, and by 2000, it held about 29,000 residents. Today, more than 53,000 people live in the fastest-growing city, located just over the state line from Memphis.
And yet, Southaven lacks a true center.
