Learn about West Nashville

What is West Nashville known for?

Perhaps Nashville’s most complete and successful urban renewal project is this downtown-adjacent neighborhood between Sylvan Park and the Cumberland River. Like many urban communities, The Nations fell out of vogue in the mid-20th Century and spent many years as a cautionary tale of urban decay. But since around the year 2000, it has seen a resurgence that leaves many locals wondering if they’re truly the same neighborhood. Derelict buildings have turned into breweries, warehouses into event spaces, and dilapidated homes into sparkling new construction. This revolution has attracted an energetic mix of young professionals, all reveling in their newfound downtown paradise that was almost given up for lost. And whether you’re into lofty taprooms, chic coffee shops, or river excursions, The Nations has become one of the ultimate places to experience Nashville.

Who is West Nashville a good fit for?

The battle between West and East Nashville is one that’s up for constant debate. West Nashville gains its notoriety for its available greenery and developing neighborhoods. The rural-like atmosphere makes it an ideal fit for many families. However, the West is by no means just limited to families. Several parts of West Nashville are undergoing great change and appealing to a younger and trendy demographic.

Love Park

Nashville, TN 37212

Towering 744 feet above sea level, this hill was known as Bald Hill in the early days of settlement. During the Battle of Nashville, in December 1864, Union defense lines ran across Harding Pike near here, and earthworks may be seen nearby. Hillside lots were subdivided for residences in 1910. This site was the highest point in the old city of Nashville, and in 1926 the City acquired 8.33 acres, mainly from John W. Love and built the Love Circle Reservoir. This two-million gallon water supply sits beneath the hill. The surrounding park was originally named for Martin R. Wetterau (1858-1939) the first custodian of the reservoir and grounds.

Things to do around West Nashville

With new housing options have come new recreational possibilities as well. Trendy restaurants, like the Frothy Monkey, are popping up along Centennial Blvd. on the neighborhood’s north side, while Charlotte Avenue just to the south is full of bars and restaurants. In between, the Fat Bottom Brewing Co. and 51 North Taproom are awesome places to have a drink. When you aren’t trying out restaurants, Paddle Up Nashville is right on the Cumberland and offers guided trips down the river. If you don’t want to brave the water, though, there are plenty of accessible parks; and the Richland Creek Greenway is right across I-40 in the Sylvan Park neighborhood.

The Nations have been surging for a while, but all signs suggest that the market upswing is nowhere near its peak. Even after an infusion of new construction, average home prices around 2017 were still just under $300k. The last four years have seen these values increase by over 50% to around $450k, and projections suggest that home values will increase by over 8% in the next year. Even if you aren’t looking to reside in the neighborhood, the low vacancy rate and limited rental properties suggest that demand is high, so renting out your property promises to be a lucrative option. For all these reasons, buying in West Nashville tends to be much more reward than risk.

Share your opinion about West Nashville with former, current and prospective residents.

“West Nashville is a great spot.”

West Nashville is a great spot. I think you can find the right variety here for an urban neighborhood. It’s adjacent to really wealthy neighborhoods like Sylvan Park and Belle Meade, so you have access to their beautiful parks. It is an area that is gentrifying, so it has a level of affordability. I also think it has the best selection of places to eat: M.L. Rose, Hattie B’s, Thistle Farms Cafe, and more. It also has Nashville’s least crowded Costco.
