CA South, known for its modern Condo & Townhome collection in Nashville is pushing the envelope yet again. Designed by Barnett Design Studio, Pie Town Condos introduces a new design aesthetic absent from the current market.

Pie Town is a small neighborhood in downtown Nashville situated between the Gulch & Rutledge Hill. The area primarily consists of updated industrial structures with new uses and has a rich African American & religious history. Pie Town condos is located at the intersection of Middleton Street & 7th Avenue South.

Modeled after the Edition Hotel in Los Angeles, this development will bring a sense of place and livability to this corner of Pie Town; which currently has no major residential development. Exterior materials include large cased windows, corrugated metal wall panels, wood-look anodized aluminum screens, plaster window surrounds, and concrete at the 2 podium levels.  Construction is in its early stages and delivery is set for 1st Quarter 2022. Here is your development rundown:

Level 6 (Mezzanine Level) for the Level 5 Residences.

The Residential units primarily occupy the next 6 levels, although level 5 features all two-level residences with mezzanines. The “penthouse” or mezzanine units typically feature nearly 18-foot high ceilings in the living areas. Generally, all residences have a terrace which occupies the length of the unit. The mezzanine levels are typically over the kitchens and feature a bedroom and full bath.

I took a snapshot of the end unit on level 5 to show the detail of the mezzanine units.  The image gallery below has the snapshot as well as the preliminary floor plan for context:

There are two major resident amenities included in this development. The 1st is a pool deck which is located above the parking deck on level 2. It’s an expansive space that will feature planters, seating, access to the fitness center & clubhouse. It will also offer views of the gulch.

According to CA South, Pie Town is set to be one of the next trendy development pockets in Nashville. I spent nearly two years living in the gulch and never ventured into Pie Town until this past weekend. I found it to be very eccentric and agree that it is primed to become a great place to live.

The development is surrounded by some great establishments and the scale of Pie Town Condos appears to be a good fit. Some of the adjacent establishments include:

  • Jack White’s
  • Third Man Records
  • City Winery
