Neighborhood Profile: Downtown



Home to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Bridgestone Arena, downtown Nashville is the heart of Music City. Tourists flock to local “honky-tonks” and the Ryman Auditorium, along with Riverfront Park.  Cultural, sporting, and entertainment opportunities are endless.  This area is lively at all hours, day or night, and you’ll likely hear musicians on the corners and the buzz from local bars. Downtown Nashville is also home to the state’s Capitol building and local government office buildings.


Residential options have grown tremendously in the last few years, as downtown continues to be developed. There are a large variety of housing options, including several large luxury condominiums developments, low and high-rise apartment complexes, townhomes, and modern lofts. As business and retail communities continue to grow, residential opportunities are expected to continue to expand. The recent build of the Music City Center has made the downtown area desirable for both businesses and residents, with the downtown home to over 50,000 people.


Regardless or your age, downtown provides a classic Nashville city-life experience. As with any neighborhood, spend time getting to know the downtown area to see if its lifestyle fits yours. It’s a great area in Nashville to call home.
