Reasonably priced office space and quality product make the Airport one of the best area to find some great deals close to the city. Most commercial office space offers abundant parking options with great amenities close by.

Berry Hill

Home to hundreds of small businesses and restaurants, Berry Hill sits just south of Nashville’s 8th Ave. South district. Technically Berry Hill is its own city, but most Nashville natives consider it just another distinct neighborhood. Lower rent than the surrounding areas, such as Green Hills and the Gulch, is one of the reasons Berry Hill attracts so many small businesses. As Berry Hill and 8th Ave grow many new and often creative office space options are coming available with several larger scale commercial developments underway.

Brentwood

About ten miles south of the city of Nashville, Brentwood is known as a great place to live for families craving the best public schools in the Nashville area. It also houses the Maryland farms, an upscale office park which contains close to five million square feet in office space. Several companies including Comdata, Tractor Supply Company, EMI Christian Music Group, and Howard Books are all headquartered in Brentwood, TN.

With cranes dotting the skyline, Nashville’s downtown is rapidly changing to attract more major businesses to the area. New developments are seemingly announced daily one of the hottest growing cities in the nation. Nashville’s city council appears determined to make the Downtown area a place for people to live and work rather than a tourist attraction for out-of-towners.

Downtown Nashville offers creative office space and traditional options typically at lower cost than surrounding areas. Parking is a challenge, but the urban environment is appealing to many businesses.

East Nashville

In the past ten years there's been a complete re-vamp of the East Nashville neighborhoods. On the residential side most houses are built in the 1910's to 1940's and most have preserved their character over the years. Mostly musicisans, songwriters, and young families are attracted here. 5 Points is always hopping and the Tomato Arts Festival every August is the highlight of the neighborhood.
