This highly sought-after neighborhood has the distinction of being Nashville’s first suburb. Through the growth of Music City, Germantown has since become a part of the downtown scene, bordered on one side by Rosa Parks Boulevard and the other by the Cumberland River.
Over the years, Germantown has been through many different phases. Much of the industrial phase is still evident in abandoned warehouses and factories. The renewal period that began just under a decade ago has breathed new life into these buildings, most notably in the Werthan Bag Factory. Now a collection of gorgeous lofts with original flooring and exposed pipes and brick, the Werthan Lofts are some of the most desirable residences in the city. Developers and investors took notice of the popularity and began work on remodeling many of the cottages and craftsman-style homes in the neighborhood. The result is a thriving community filled with affluent young professionals, both singles, and small families.
