Nashville High Rise Construction If you remember plans being revealed in early 2015 about a 25-story high-rise possibly being developed in Midtown, you might be interested to learn that the same developer is now looking to move forward with the project, only in a different location. 

The original project site was just recently sold to Vanderbilt University, but according to a recent report from the Nashville Post, developer Ardavan Afrakhteh is currently exploring other options to finally build the sleek new 25-story tower, which could include condos, a boutique hotel, and even some ground level commercial space if the original plan comes to fruition.

Work-Live Spaces in Nashville Working from home certainly isn’t a new thing, but it’s a trend that’s starting to be noticed by new home builders more and more, and especially here in the Nashville area where job growth continues to be on the rise. 

Franklin’s new Westhaven community features a number of work-live options for small business owners to consider, and home builders are also incorporating similar spaces inside the nearby subdivision of Berry Farms as well, also in Franklin. 

In Nashville, Core Development has already recognized the need for more unique work-live options and featured a variety of “live-make” townhouses over at the fabulous new Six10 Merritt and 1260Martin developments, both in the up-and-coming Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood

Westhaven Condos For Sale - Franklin TNWesthaven is widely thought to be one of Franklin’s most charming communities, providing residents with quaint living spaces, a walkable Town Center, and plenty of great outdoor spaces to go for a walk or bike ride. 

Almost a town within a town, Westhaven is specifically designed for today’s quintessential suburban lifestyle, and perhaps most importantly, provides a unique sense of community that’s not always easy to maintain in today’s alway-on-the-go culture. 

While many home buyers might automatically associate single-family homes with a suburban neighborhood, Westhaven is a housing development that truly offers options. In many ways, condos for sale at Westhaven are equally as desirable as any other housing type you’ll find here, and townhouses

Nashville Real Estate Market Stays HotwRecently released data from Freddie Mac is confirming what many of us currently living in Middle Tennessee already know—the Nashville area real estate market is still red hot heading into 2017.
