Situated on .54 acres in the lively town of Nashville will be 9th Avenue North — a three-story micro-unit studio community featuring 57 short-term rental apartments with surface parking. Conveniently located off interstate Highway 65, residents will have direct access to major roadways providing a short commute to some of Nashville’s major employers.

Located in the southern sector of the Buena Vista district, residents are within walking distance to grocery stores, award-winning dining options, parks, music venues, entertainment centers, and downtown Nashville’s lively nightlife. Serving young professionals and executives seeking short-term leases, this unique property offers residents ultra-efficient living spaces with five studio floor plans ranging from 378 to 433 square feet.

Paying tribute to the industrial aesthetic of the historic Buena Vista district, the building is outfitted with brick and steel architecture providing an ultra-urban feel with sleek interior finishes and open living concepts. Each unit includes a private exterior balcony, an in-unit washer and dryer, and stainless steel appliances. The wood-framed E-stack community includes more than 1,000 square feet of amenity space including a multifunctional clubhouse, bike storage, and leasing office.

From the Judges
The contemporary mix of materials provides great visual interest on the exterior, with the gables bowed out to help separate individual balconies. Inside, the metal separators in each studio provide a nice dual-zone setup between the sleeping and living areas.
