This week, The New York Times took a look our way, addressing Nashville’s rocket-powered growth and the issues surrounding it

“A powerful surge in construction is reshaping the physical character and economy of this 236-year-old river city,” the piece says, “and fueling a deepening public conversation about essential civic values that many residents worry could be lost.”

That conversation has been going for a while, and will continue — and it’s a good conversation to have. There are pros and cons, and fors and againsts, but an important thing to think about as our city is reshaped: There are builders and developers in Nashville who focus deep attention on helping our city grow while also helping Nashville maintain what makes it Nashville. From location and size and shape to style, they’re considering how attributes of the new structures joining our neighborhoods and skyline fit. 

With that in mind, I’m focusing this week’s Open Houses roundup on new construction that complements the neighborhood, and the city. There’s plenty of it — a good thing as lots of new residents come to make Nashville home (the Nashville Metropolitan Planning Organization estimates that we’ll add close to another million people by 2035).

First, the big Open Houses picture for the weekend:


And some new construction that, in my opinion, fits our growing city.

The area around 12 South is prized for a mix of cool things to do/see/eat and charming historic homes. This new home — 4 beds, 3 baths and more than 3,100 square feet — is fittingly cool, fittingly charming, and fittingly stocked with modern and efficient upgrades (like a tankless water heater and Energy Star windows). Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

Nashvillians are drawn to the Green Hills area for sophistication, family-friendliness and homes with timeless style. I think this one fits the bill — the timeless curb appeal is immediately apparent, and with 3 beds, 2 full and 2 half baths and almost 2,500 square feet, it’ll fit a growing (and stylish) family well. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

Fast-growing and increasingly cool, The Nations appeals to young professionals who want access to things to do and the possibility of a beautiful home at a lower budget than you’d find in, say, Green Hills or 12 South. This home has a lot of space (2,000 square feet, with 3 beds and 2 1/2 baths) with high-end finishes and ample style. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

Any of these catch your eye? Looking for timeless new construction elsewhere? Let us know what you’re hunting for — we’d love to help.
