Although downtown Nashville has any number of spectacular housing options for home buyers to consider—see Twelve Twelve or Icon in the Gulch for example—there’s just something about an authentic loft space that fits the Nashville landscape perfectly. Whether it’s the classic urban look and feel of a downtown Nashville loft conversion or perhaps the unbeatable location that puts many lofts dwellers in the city just steps from all the fun and excitement that surrounds the downtown area, it’s hard to argue against settling for a unique and stylish Nashville loft space should you happen to be looking for a new place to live in the heart of Music City.
But like much of downtown Nashville real estate landscape, loft inventory in the city is rather scarce right now, making it difficult for just about anybody browsing the market for a new home. And if you are lucky enough to find something you like, the competition amongst other buyers is fierce to say the least. So where might you have the best luck finding a Nashville loft right now? Well, let’s take a closer look at the few buildings that do have active listings currently on the market.
Kress Lofts - 231 5th Ave N
Only 1 unit is currently on the market here right now—a 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom loft with two-levels, exposed brick walls, and a pretty cool spiral staircase. Oh, and the price was just reduced, so if you’re interested, you better act fast with this one.
Encore - 301 Demonbreun Street
Although quite a bit newer and offering more of a modern feel, units at Encore still have a pretty sleek soft-loft feel, which includes some exposed concrete, huge floor-to-ceiling windows, and bright and spacious open layouts. If you like the loft style but want some modern amenities to go along with where you call home, Nashville’s Encore building is the perfect fit.
The Bennie Dillon - 700 Church St
Built back in 1927, The Bennie Dillon has it all: history, appealing living spaces, and plenty of authentic loft finishes like exposed brick walls, open layouts, exposed duct work, and gleaming hardwood flooring throughout most of the main living areas. Affordability also makes it an attractive option for most city dwellers, so if you’re in the market for a new Nashville loft, The Bennie Dillion might be a good place to begin your search.

With downtown Nashville’s inventory at an all-time low right now, finding the right place to call home has become increasingly challenging for local home buyers, but especially to those searching for a stylish new loft. In a city like Nashville, where the kind of interior and exterior aesthetics of a loft conversion seem to go hand-in-hand with the general atmosphere and make-up of the downtown area, residential lofts are usually a pretty hot commodity to home buyers looking for a new place to live, regardless of how hot or cold the market may be.
Whether you’re looking for nice big open layout that’s functional as a work-live space or just simply like the decor that’s usually associated with a loft conversion—like exposed brick walls and high timber or concrete ceilings for example—opportunities at securing a fabulous new Nashville loft certainly aren’t plentiful at the moment, making it more important than ever for potential buyers to act fast should they see a unit on the market that fits all their needs and wants.
And while inventory continues to be an issue for just about every property-type here in the city, a few Nashville loft buildings still have some great deals currently available, but probably not for long. Here’s a closer look at what you can expect to find in some of downtown’s hottest loft buildings:
Werthan Mills Lofts
Arguably downtown Nashville’s most prominent loft building, the Werthan Mills Lofts are about as authentic as it gets for a residential loft conversion. And with 5 units currently on the market, it might also be your best chance at finding something that checks off most of those boxes on your wish list.
Although a bit newer and offering more of a soft-loft kind of feel, there are still 3 lofts currently on the market here, which all have a great value. And given the Midtown Lofts are situated in the highly-desirable West End/Vanderbilt area, it’s hard to beat the location as well.
West End Lofts
As one of Nashville’s original loft developments, it’s not very often you see a unit here pop onto the market, which was all the more reason for us to feature it on our list. Right now, a one-bedroom/two-bathroom unit is currently listed, which features a very spacious interior, private outdoor space, and some exceptional updates to both the kitchen and baths.
