In Memphis, Tennessee, just a few miles from Downtown Memphis in what is considered East Memphis, is an eclectic mix of neighborhoods in the charming and popular area of Midtown. In Midtwon, there is a local joke that once you move to midtown, you never go past the parkways, since the parkways — East, North, and South surround midtown Memphis.
Many people claim that midtown has everything they need. There are quirky shops, fabulous restaurants, entertainment venues, parks, the zoo, grocery stores, and some of the best schools in the city.
Midtown Memphis has three to five streets that run parallel to each other, with the most popular streets being Union, Madison Avenue, and Poplar Avenue. Currently, on each of these streets, you’ll see new apartments and townhomes rapidly being developed. A recent article in The Memphis Flyer calls all of this new development “The Midtown Apartment Boom.” In this article, the author spoke to a developer who said, “Midtown is really hot, houses go on the market and sell within hours. There’s not much new housing stock, really nowhere, to build. Developers build what the market demands, and right now, that’s apartments. And these apartments are getting purchased and leased.”
Why Pella Windows Are a Great Choice for Urban Apartments
Many of the apartments being constructed in midtown Memphis are luxury apartments. Yet, where they are being built — on Union, Poplar Avenue, and Madison Avenue — are the busiest and noisiest streets in the midtown area.
Recently our Pella team had a brilliant idea to showcase how effective our windows and doors are for canceling noise pollution in urban areas. We did a unique study in New York City, a notoriously loud city, by placing a pop-up room lined with our Lifestyle Series of Pella Windows and Doors in Grand Central Station. In this study, simulated some of the classic and noisy sounds you might hear in New York City, such as cars honking, people yelling on the street, or loud music playing. You could not hear any of it through our Pella windows and doors. We were delighted to show how effectively our windows and doors reduce noise pollution.
Why Choose Pella Windows?
Our Pella Lifestyle Series products help keep outside noise, out. They are the #1 performing wood window and patio door for their elite combination of energy efficiency, sound reduction, and value. They offer performance options that reduce 52% more sound and are, on average, 79% more energy efficient than single-pane windows.
