Nashville's Condo Livin' Lifestyle: Now at Deep Discounts

Yesterday, the Tennessean reported on price-slashing measures at Midtown condo Adelicia. The average one-bedroom unit is now going for something close to $100,000 less than it did last year. And it seems the inclusion of a sale rack is working: Adelicia spokespeople say they cleared a dozen units just last week.

We mention this only as a way of pointing out how the times, they be a changin'.

It was only five months ago that Tracy Moore wrote about Nashville's attempts to gain entry into the Cool Cities Club via the construction of a bunch of shiny new buildings ("The Seduction"). Back then, the recession was still in diapers and the big concern among Music City's pioneering downtown residents wasn't Can we afford the gas bill? but Where can I satisfy my chai tea jones at midnight?

Of course, a post office, library, decent bookstore and the mother lode--a grocery--are critical. These conveniences have only begun to dip their toes in downtown Nashville, where the financial district thrives and the honky-tonks, karaoke bars and kitschy cowboy shops on Lower Broad remain stuck in novelty T-shirt entropy. Most of downtown shuts down after 6 p.m., when all the bankers, accountants and lawyers go home, and nothing much steps in to take their place that doesn't have a tourist vibe airbrushed onto its chest like a neon necklace.
Ahh, the good old days.
