THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING ABLE TO HAVE DREAMS, IDEAS AND GOALS COME TO FRUITION, IS THE CORE OF WHAT WE ARE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE BECAUSE OF THE FREEDOMS THAT ARE OURS IN AMERICA.

HENRY M. TURLEY

HENRY TURLEY CO.
PRESIDENT
Founding MemberMaster Entrepreneur

Henry Turley is a founding member of the Society of Entrepreneurs, and he is also a very good friend to Downtown Memphis. More than twenty years ago, Mr. Turley made known his passion for Memphis and his promise to revitalize its downtown – and this promise is one that he has and continues to follow through on.

Mr. Turley’s approach has been to preserve the beautiful historic structures of Downtown Memphis, while improving them with modern amenities. Among his first projects were the Shrine Building and the Cotton Exchange Building, both of which are highly sought after by apartment and office space seekers. His attentions moved from there to the South Bluffs of downtown, where he built an array of condos and stunning homes offering picturesque view of the Mississippi River. Memphis can also thank Henry Turley for the arrival of Harbor Town, a nationally celebrated community nestled on what was once a relatively obscure island in the river.

The bottom line is that Downtown Memphis is once again the “cool” place to live, and it’s largely due to Henry Turley’s vision and attention to the places that the rest of Memphis almost forgot about.
