Looking for Lofts or Condos in Nashville?
Real estate ownership in Downtown Nashville is cool, trendy, and happening! It’s also smart, especially, if you work downtown or the west end/ Vanderbilt / Belmont area. With three major hospitals, the music district and many corporate headquarters there are many reasons to be part of the Nashville scene. Nashville has seen substantial growth and revitalization over the last 10 years. There are several areas of downtown Nashville that may peak your interest, but here are a few that I have picked out to highlight because of their growth in popularity and what I think offers the most for downtown living.
Located between Wedgewood Ave and Gale Lane is 12th South. It is a quaint and strategically located area that serves both the downtown districts, and the Belmont and Vanderbilt districts. 12th Avenue South will take you to either side of the interstate while avoiding some of the heavy traffic. There are eateries, art galleries, coffee shops, and all the amenities along this path that attract the arts and social at heart. The 12th South neighborhood is the up and coming place to live and socialize. This area over the century has hung on to its roots as a sustainable neighborhood with residents forming it’s own association to promote, safety, historic preservation and values, such as, community friendship, beautification, and environmental awareness. In 12th South, you will find mostly single residential homes of Victorian, and four -square styles, indicative of the 1850’s to 1920s era.
One of the many famous eateries is MAFIoZA’S Pizzeria located on 12th South and is made famous by it’s Godfather Style environment.
Be sure to take a tour and look at all the local businesses in the 12th Avenue South community. Check out this page:
Mostly, loft apartments, studios and condominiums make up the residential component of The Gulch. From Broadway, turn on 12th ave and you will end up in the Gulch. This is Nashville’s first look at real urban living. It is one of the eight actual downtown communities. With the recent completion of the Icon, Terrazzo, and Mercury View Lofts offering floor to ceiling glass windows and incredible views of the Nashville skyline residents of the Gulch enjoy the Nashville Scene from all angles. The Gulch offers an array of rooftop terraces and sidewalk seating at some of Nashville’s most frequented restaurants.
Historic Germantown is an 18 square block located between Jefferson Street south and Hume Street on the north. Rosa Parks Boulevard is on the west with Third Avenue located on the east. Germantown is close to the Farmers Market in Bicentennial Mall, which is becoming more and more popular by the locals wanting home grown and organic foods. Germantown is rich in History and is home to the “Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary”, Nashville’s second oldest Catholic church.
Many prominent people came from Germantown; here is a link to the interesting History of the area.
The Rebirth of Germantown began around the 1970’s and has grown and evolved slowly over the last few decades. Germantown has grown with the help of active and protesting citizens, former Governor McWherter, the MDHA and several prominent entrepreneurs and investors who possessed visions of preservation and reviving urban living. Urban living is demonstrated the best in Germantown. The greatest event honoring the area’s historical significance was its recent “Historic Overlay” protecting its unique character and integrity. Since then there has been a tremendous spike in home ownership and purchases in Germantown. Whether you plan to buy in Germantown or just visit then you must visit the Germantown Café and the Mad Platter restaurant. It is worth the visit to see this fascinating area.
