Native Nashville Homes: Real Estate Talk from the Comfort of My Laptop: Downtown Nashville Living! Velocity in the Gulch!

Downtown Nashville Living! Velocity in the Gulch!

Downtown Nashville Living!  Velocity in the Gulch!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of touring some of the newest condos available in Nashville!  Some friends of mine who were both considering selling their homes wanted to know what it would be like to live in the Gulch!  So we headed out for lunch first at Urban Flats and then went to see Velocity in the Gulch. 

I have to say that I was impressed!  This is a mid-rise urban style condo complex with a workout facility, rooftop terrace and 25,000 square feet of retail space. 

I really liked the fact that the condos are LEED certified SILVER.  They use materials like cork flooring and 50% recycled materials flooring, sustainable countertop products and low-flow plumbing fixtures.  Along with storm water runoff management systems, native plantings and Energy Star appliances and systems, these products can make you feel good about what you are purchasing and where you are living!

Velocity in the Gulch is located in Nashvilleon 11th Avenue, just at the corner of Pine and 11th.  The price ranges from $133K-$315K.  There are two plans which qualify for affordable housing!  They range in size from a 440 square foot studio to over 1200 square feet and 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms!  One parking spot is included in the price of each condo.  There are storage units onsite also which can be rented.  And, if you have out of town company, there is a condo which can be reserved for your guests for the price of cleaning!  The Homeowner's Association Fee is approximately $.27 per square foot.

Here is what the condo complex looks like on the exterior. 

The Lobby is very open and adjacent to an interior courtyard.

This is what the model unit looked like!

At Velocity in the Gulch, all of the ceilings on the first level are 15' tall!

Complete view of the kitchen - very cool!

Exterior patio with access to the sidewalk...

This rooftop terrace made me wonder where I was - reminded me of Miami or Los Angeles - there is a skyline view of Nashville, iPod docking station, fireplace, water feature and they are putting in a grill as well!  The easy life at Velocity in the Gulch!

I just took this picture because I wanted you to be able to see the modern features of the bathrooms, complete with glass tile and recycled content countertops!

If you have been thinking about wanting to live in the Gulch, you really may want to check out this mid-rise condo complex.  Velocity in the Gulch offers a modern yet sustainable living option, one of Nashville's first!  AND, until the end of October, Velocity in the Gulch is offering a $10K IKEA and ModerNash package that will help you furnish your new condo!
