Endeavor Real Estate announced that its 29-story tower under construction at the corner of 12th Avenue South and Demonbreun Street will be home to 300 condo units — not apartments as originally planned.
This shift in strategy reflects the lack of available condominiums in Nashville and marks the first chance to purchase newly-constructed condos in the Gulch since 2015, according to Endeavor.
“We’ve been watching the Nashville high-rise condo market closely for nearly a decade and have seen a real shortage of supply here relative to other cities of the same caliber,” Jamil Alam, managing principal of Endeavor Real Estate, said in a release.
