The Edge District

A relatively small sliver of a neighborhood situated between the Medical District and Downtown Core, the Edge is anchored by the historic Sun Studios to the east and the Redbird’s AutoZone Park to the west. Many of its industrial buildingss have been converted to studios and craft spaces, and the area is increasingly attracting new businesses, including the Trolley Stop Market, Evelyn & Olive, High Cotton Brewery and Mutt Island Dog Daycare. Recent placemaking efforts have focused on walkability with beautification of streetscapes and crosswalks in the area.
