1. Current excitement in Nashville is circling around the billion-dollar plus project (completion in 2022 – 2023) spanning 17 acres called Nashville Yards (see rendering in above picture).
2. Nashville Yards will be bringing in an estimated 5,000 high paying jobs from online giant, Amazon and will include a four-acre concert venue spearheaded by MGM and AEG Worldwide.
3. Lavish Hotel chain, Four Seasons, is currently building at a pinnacle location just south of Broadway and hooked to the Pedestrian Bridge, with access to the best that downtown Nashville has to offer. (Completion 2022)
4. Currently Four Seasons has already opened up their first window of sales, bringing in $80,000,000 on the first day alone. In early 2021, they will release a second and final batch of residences for purchase.
5. While the Four Seasons was choosing what exterior materials would best suit the location, they tested glass at a Nine Inch Nails concert, in order to find which glass would be the most soundproof.
6. Broadwest’s current build sprawls 3.4 acres and costs an estimated 540-million-dollars. (Completion 2021) Propst Developers blasted down seven stories into the Tennessee limestone to allow for more than enough parking for both buildings – and is 40% bigger than the parking garage built for the Music City Center with more than 2,500 spots.
7. While other Nashville towers put the pool in a mid-level deck, Broadwest owners will have a rooftop resort-style pool, restaurant and bar with all-day access to sunlight.
8. Worldwide mega-developer Hines has purchased the 11-acre Reed family dealership properties (in Midtown next to the 440 loop) for more than 100 million dollars with plans for seven multi-use towers.
9. Nestled in a downtown entertainer’s prime location, sits Nashville’s tallest residential tower, The 505. The outdoor amenity deck, swimming pool, and sunning deck is lifted seven stories into the sky. Amenities also found on the same floor: tennis courts, poolside cabanas,
dog park, cornhole, and fire-pits. You may be living downtown, but within the walls you find yourself in more of a sprawled, suburban resort.
10. Unique to The 505 is Carmen’s Room. It has the feel of Tuscany village, and has a massive table for the biggest of events and is nestled next to the wine cellar with rentable wine storage lockers.
11. TwelveTwelve was the first high rise to be built following the recession as the Nashville high rise market was bursting at the seams and is also Nashville’s most recent tower built in the southern corner of downtown, an area called The Gulch.
12. The Gulch neighborhood (in above picture) is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified neighborhood in the south, tenth nationwide, and 14th worldwide.
13. TwelveTwelve has a 3,800-square-foot wellness center space (voted “Best Local Gym” in the Nashville Scene’s “Best of Nashville” awards) and outdoor park space five stories in the air, filled with greenspace, fire pits, grills, a saline heated pool and hot-tub.
14. Encore is the best condo for the money in SoBro if you value being able to enjoy the glow of the Batman Building and city lights at night. It features an outdoor amenity deck, with heated stretch pool, fire pits, grills and green space to relax or entertain.
15. Tony Giarratana was the first to develop and discover the downtown residential high life beginning in 1998 at the Viridian and Cumberland, Encore, and most recently The 505.
16. Ray Hensler was the main developer for The Adelicia and TwelveTwelve.
17. The luxurious Adelicia is the furthest high rise tower west, making it the closest to Music Row, Midtown, and Vanderbilt. For nearly half a decade, The Adelicia enjoyed its reign as the ‘it’ high-rise, setting records for price per sqft. and highest price for a unit.
18. The Adelicia (see above picture), built to 18 stories in 2007, attracted Taylor Swift and Simon Fuller, among other heavy hitters in varying industries.
19. At The Adelicia, you also have the luxury to be able to escape when you are needing to go to Green Hills or 12 South for food or shopping. Radnor Lake and Percy Warner Park are just ten minutes away if you are wanting an outdoors escape as well.
20. The Viridian was the first luxury residential tower in Nashville that was built for owners and not rentals. The Cumberland is older by 8 years, but it was originally designed as a apartment rental space, and later transformed into residences.
21. Voted in 2007 by Executive Magazine as Best High Rise in the Nation, The Viridian was the spark that has started the downtown living boom.
22. The Viridian sold out six months before completion – a feat that has yet to be duplicated. With 360-degree views, Church Street locale, rooftop pool, and a low cost to entry, it is the perfect place to start out if you are a high rise first-timer.
23. The best priced two-story penthouses are located at The Cumberland (see above picture), each has been uniquely updated, and range from the mid 800’s to north of 1 million dollars.
