The hip urban development that’s revitalizing Nashville
The Gulch is the urban community that Tennessee dreams are made of. Close to both Nashville’s Central Business District and Music City Center, it’s full of vibrant dining and retail options, prime entertainment, and gorgeous amenities for residents. It’s the epitome of hip, cutting edge living.
The Gulch used to be one of Nashville’s busiest rail yards, dating back to the Civil War. The development was named for the land depression running through much of it and didn’t see much action for many decades. In the early 2000s, a revitalization plan was formed, and The Gulch was born from the passion of many Nashville companies.
Living here, residents have everything at their fingertips. The Gulch was designed to give the community a high quality of life and to set a new standard for mixed-use developments. One way The Gulch is doing that is by being a LEED certified community, and its energy efficient ways extend from businesses and traffic lights to the lofts and luxury condos.
