NASHVILLE, TENN. (WSMV) - There's a new kind of apartment complex coming to Nashville's Midtown and the cool part about it-- you don't have to rent an apartment to take advantage of all it has to offer.
Located on Division and 19th Avenue, Kenect Midtown will feature 420 units of studios, 1 bedrooms and 3 bedroom coliving spaces that are leasing now, but will start filling up this spring.
For tenants looking to rent a studio apartment, no space was wasted. About 80% of the apartments come fully furnished with pull out desks and eating spaces and a Murphy bed. With a push of a button, the bed folds down right over your couch and coffee table-- no moving required.
"This is really nice, especially for someone moving here, trying to save on moving costs, or maybe you're just in a pinch and need a furnished place," says Yasha Loera-Gracia, Leasing and Membership Lead at Kenect Midtown. "No space was wasted. We've really maximized the space with custom-made furniture."
Midtown was chosen as a central location to downtown and Music Row, with walkability at the front of mind.
"We're really catering to a target audience of these transient professionals that are new to Nashville, who wanna experience the midtown lifestyle and have it for an affordable value," says Carroll Van Hook-Weaver, Executive Director of Kenect Midtown. "We've been scouring Nashville for 5 or 6 years now. This didn't just happen overnight. With 137 people moving here a day, it made sense to come to midtown to offer that affordable luxury and people can get a lot of value for their dollar."
You don't have to be a resident to take advantage of everything Kenect has to offer. The co-working spaces are the biggest draw and you can rent the space with a daily pass or a monthly membership. That membership gets you access to all business related aspects, including a podcast recording studio and resume building sessions, as well as access to a their fitness center and high level pool.
The co-working space will open to the public in June. For more information on rates or information about leasing an apartment, click here.
