Fern Avenue Lofts

I am with Councilman Dread on this. Anything like this is good for that area. Great news!!!! Let's hope this spurs more developments in that area that compliment or exceed this current proposal.

I was about to post this but you beat me to it. I thought maybe that the condo sales would be slowing a bit but looks as if that is wrong.

Wow, Bordeaux? Now there is an area you don't hear much about! Great news! You KNOW that this urban housing thing is catching on when it has crept into places like Bordeaux and Ashland City!

This is definately a move in a good direction, but the true impact of this one project won't be known until/unless high-quality, complimentary infill is surrounding it.

so how far from DT is this? I think Fern is the road that goes over I-65 just north of the I-65/I-24 split where the road squeezed through that rock.

A lot of exciting things are happening on this street. The view is absolutely THE BEST of downtown Nashville.

The area is very similar to the Nevada Heights development overlooking 440 on the west side. You can be downtown from the proposed development via Cowan or 1st in 2 miles or less?

Also, the official name of the development hasn't been made public yet, but should be in the coming months. It will NOT be Fern Avenue Lofts however. It will be represented by Village Real Estate.

Also, another insider website has been launched separately from the loft project. It's at www.fernavenueview.com

The view is definately quite impressive from this street. I wonder how quickly it will change, though. The area is a little seedy compared to other downtown neighborhoods. It's just a little strange, seeing these big high-end houses being built next to mobile homes/trailers and old run-down houses.

Did not see a rendering of the project on the linked website. Is there one I can see?

Looks pretty nice. Are these near the point where Fern crosses I-65? I think it's a shame that TDOT has not blasted that rock away that creates such a bottleneck.

I drove by this site today. There are signs around the property for a zoning change hearing from CS to SP-R on March 4.

I found a little more info. The project has grown.

Thanks for posting this barakat. I thought I had posted about some of this making its way through the planning commission and then I realized it was on NC. I am glad to see this start to move again. I really thought it was DOA.

I really think that if we see new condo construction going on in Nashville over the next year or so, it will be more projects like this one. Large developments may be put on hold for a while. It depends on how many people continue to move here. If Nashville is more recession proof than other areas of the country, then get ready for a surge of people because they go where the jobs are.
