Location Nashville , TN

Owner Coda Development

Architect Kline Swinney Associates

Located in the Historic Edgefield district of Nashville, City View Lofts brought “loft living” to an area filled with Victorian-style homes. The three-story building features an arts and crafts façade and a high level of architectural detail that blends with the area. Inside, there are 30 units with 12 different layouts ranging from 800-SF studios to 1600-SF two-bedroom apartments. The units feature spacious, open floor plans with up to 10-foot high ceilings, dramatic two-story arched windows, stained concrete floors and exposed ductwork, along with sophisticated interior finishes like stainless steel appliances, contemporary wood cabinetry, hard-surface countertops, gas fireplaces, and private balconies with views of downtown Nashville.

Because the site of the project is in a National Register Historic District and a Historic Zoning District, the design team had to make minor changes to the construction plans (amended by the Metropolitan Historic Zoning Commission) in order to obtain a preservation permit from them before a building permit could be issued for construction.

Minor changes were made to the construction plans by the design team, as amended by the Metropolitan Historical Zoning Commission, and the preservation permit was issued.
