Investing in North Nashville – A Historic Neighborhood in a City on the Rise

Almost 8 square miles, and with a population density of around 8,000 people, North Nashville is booming. Business is ripe and the market is hot, and just like many other areas in Nashville’s urban core, North Nashville is becoming a go-to.

You may ask, what really stood out about this historic neighborhood for us? The unique community-feel and close proximity to Downtown made it an easy decision for us to invest in our next new construction, 4-build project in the Buena Vista Heights area of North Nashville.

North Nashville Community Vibes

Each Nashville community rocks its own unique character and style, North Nashville is no exception. As one of Nashville’s oldest communities, this area includes the neighborhoods of Buena Vista, Germantown, Salemtown just to name a few. While history engulfs Tennessee hotspots like Chestnut Hill and Chattanooga, the current spotlight on this community highlights redevelopment and a shared-effort to build up the area into an updated version of its charming, historic self.

Neighborhood Delights on your Doorstep

Our cozy neighborhood, Buena Vista,  resides in the Northern end of urban Nashville, hiding only minutes away from Downtown and the thriving Germantown Community. 

Germantown is a highlight for locals and tourists alike. Boasting managed growth and retained character, it continues to morph into one of Nashville’s most vibrant neighborhoods.  In Germantown you can discover charming, historic homes, an abundance of chic cafes and quirky restaurants, and the infamous Nashville Farmers’ Market. 

Germantown is a designated hub of Nashville cuisine, also referred to as the epicurean food scene. As home to award-winning restaurants that helped put Nashville on the map, many local diners and hungry travelers journey to Germantown for a taste of the neighborhood delights.

The Community Charm of Buena Vista

The Buena Vista neighborhood is an equally attractive one, hosting events of its own like Open-Streets.  This North Nashville Community brings locals together to celebrate the diverse, friendly culture that has been established over the years. Local businesses, more local cafes, and homes with a history make up this neighborhood.  If you’re looking for one of Nashville’s Top 5 Pizza spots, we highly recommend a visit to our favorite Buena Vista restaurant Slim & Husky.

In Buena Vista, the residents are key players in the community-feel of the neighborhood, and in a city where new development is battling for front of stage, we appreciate how important community charm is.

North Nashville is a treasure of the city, a unique blend of what is, and what is to be.

The area is in the midst of a momentous new chapter, acting as home to the new Nashville Sounds ballpark, and amongst the biggest changes: the redevelopment of the historic Germantown and Buena Vista neighborhoods. Families and young professionals continue to move to the area, and when you step into North Nashville it’s easy to see why. 

2012’s $18 million project, 28th/31st Avenue Connector – created an easier passage to Nashville’s West End, this gold-star location offers homebuyers city walkability and loveable historic charm.

In a location where real estate is booming and more recent developments like the Tennessee Titan’s Headquarters and Watkins College of Art have claimed their place, history and culture are still a priority. New developments in the Buchanan District and vibrant local assets like the three Universities (including Tennessee State University) impede North Nashville –  and we, along with other businesses, hope to add value and traction to what is already a culture and education rich neighborhood.
