Funky Fresh and Growing
It’s no secret 51st ave has started to make a name for itself over the past few years. Slowly transforming itself from small rooftops encompassed by industrial centers like auto body shops and lumberyards, The Nations has very quickly established itself as a powerhouse area for growth in the city, especially among Millennials.
Some of those longtime industrial users still dot certain areas of the street, but so do about a dozen newcomers, including restaurants, retail stores, apartment buildings and “coming soon” signs. Whole factories once stacked for storage of heavy machinery are now being gutted for mixed use developments and more retail.
Streets that were once very complacent are now booming with growth and activity from dog walkers and baby strollers.
The price point is slowly growing but compared to places like Germantown and 12 South, the housing market in The Nations is still somewhat affordable. The neighborhood’s name stretches back to before colonization, when different Native American tribal nations would meet there to communicate with each other. Lying about five miles west of downtown, the area is now drawing comparisons to 12 South at the cusp of its development more than a decade ago. Today, 12 South is one of Nashville’s priciest home markets and a red-hot area for commercial tenants.
The nine-block stretch of 51st Avenue North between Charlotte Avenue and Centennial Boulevard is a symbol of the rapid development sweeping Nashville neighborhoods like The Nations as old homes get demolished for new builds and businesses move in to offer residents amenities.
Some of our favorite places to east and explore in The Nations include: Nicky’s Coal Fire Pizza, Frothy Monkey, 51st Market, Corner Pub, The Hop Yard and The Nations Bar and Grill. There is also a growing amount of retail in the area, some of them local only to Nashville such as This n’ That Thrift Shop, Made in TN, and Project 615 (West).
