In the mid-nineties, the planning of Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park began. Now boasting 960 acres in East Nashville (and within a very short drive of downtown) Shelby Bottoms off...

Why The Hop Stop Is the Only Growler Filling Spot You Need   Another new beer revolution has taken over Music City. No longer must you rely on convenience stores and grocery stores to stock the beers you love. We all know how rare finding a good craft beer among the domestics at Kroger is, too. Fortunately, a few trail blazers decided to open growler filling stations, starting with Craft Brewed on 8th Avenue South near ML Rose. Later came the Filling Station at 12 South. Now, we have The Hop Stop in East Nashville. These booming businesses make stopping in to fill your growler with your favorite local and national craft beers a snap.   About The Hop Stop   Located just off Trinity Lane and Gallatin Pike, The Hop Stop is in a very convenient spot. Beer aficionados in this area of Inglewo...

Where Are Your Dollars Better Spent?   Choosing between renting and buying is often as simple as determining how long you plan to be in your current home. For short-term stays, renting is the better option. So much investment is needed for making a purchase that you won’t see a return for up to four years or more. Those planning to stick around a while, however, will find that buying is the better deal.   Real-Life Application   To show you what we mean, we’ve used this rent calculator to give you an idea of the money spent from year to year on both mortgage and rent for the same home. This home, for our purposes, is located in East Nashville, has a price of $150,000 or rent payments of $900 per month. Can you picture it?   For the first four years of living in this home, renting is bet...

East Nashville Expands Yet Again The East Nashville neighborhood is one of the hottest in the city. Most consider the 37206 zip code the center of the action, but over the past several years, the community has stretched almost to Madison and now includes the 37216 zip code. Homes in these areas have seen steady price appreciation, even through the latest economic crisis. Now, East Nashville is growing once more, with its eye firmly on the 37207 zip code. McFerrin Park Much attention has been paid to the McFerrin Park neighborhood in recent months because of an initiative to save the Roxy Theatre, the community’s historic entertainment complex. In addition to these efforts, homes between Cleveland Street and Downtown have experienced revitalization and renovation. New construction, new b...

Nashville’s Urban Redevelopment Focuses on Abandoned Theaters The latest in revitalization for urban areas in Nashville and the surrounding areas focuses on abandoned theaters and shopping complexes. Perhaps the most visible of these exists in the Belle Meade community, where the theater received a facelift and a grocery store tenant. The project has served as a model for other areas of the city. 8th Avenue South The introduction of ML Rose began the renaissance of the Melrose area. An abandoned theater across the street was once the jewel in the crown of a strip mall, which, until recently, featured a lone holdover in the form of a billiards hall. The theater is now undergoing renovation, and new retail spaces are being remodeled for future tenants. Apartments and other housing options...

Today I ran the Tomato 5k hosted by the Margaret Maddox YMCA in East Nashville. Mayor Karl Dean was there to start the race. Although it was exhausting, I had a great time. First, let me say that I have a new appreciation for the wonderful community of East Nashville. Many of the homeowners were outside their homes cheering us on as we ran or walked past. Some of them even had water, music and encouragement. In fact, as I ran up the wonderful Woodland street hill, there was a neighbor with two speakers on his front lawn, blasting "Eye of the Tiger!" It made me smile. Runners were encouraging each other and we all finished feeling very accomplished.  The Tomato Arts Fest will be going on for the remainder of the day today. If you are in town, stop by and see us at the Village Real Estate...
