Surface Parked Retail Hits Market for Lease Near Downtown Nashville

105 Lafayette Street

13,424 square feet of retail, flex for lease on .71 acres


South Nashville, especially along the Nolensville Road corridor, has experienced massive expansion during this economic cycle. Adding nearly 10% (over 1,000,000 square feet) of its total office space in the last 5 years alone, it’s safe to say the Airport South is a strong submarket just outside of downtown. Seated in the shadow of Nashville International Airport, South Nashville has significant connectivity through I-65 / I-24, Nolensville Pike and Murfreesboro Pike and strong East/West corridors with I-440, Thompson Lane, Harding Place, and Bell Road / Old Hickory Blvd. Although the location is ideal for most workers and employers, rents here tend to be 20% below the Metro Nashville average - even Class A new construction.


105 Lafayette Street is located conveniently on Lafayette Street and 2nd Ave near Nolensville Road, two major arteries running out of downtown. Chestnut Hill, a rapidly evolving urban neighborhood, has seen a massive increase in both residential and commercial development. The arrival of Nashville’s MLS stadium in combination with the Opportunity Zones and redevelopments, such as the May Hosiery, has led to increased popularity in this once industrial district. Much of the commercial real estate in Wedgewood Houston is older and historic, leading to creative adaptive-reuse projects that have maintained the character of the neighborhood. Close proximity to the downtown interstate loop and access to several major thoroughfares gives Lafayette excellent access throughout Nashville.

Notable nearby landmarks include The Adventure Science Center, Fort Negley, The Nashville Fairgrounds & Speedway, and Trevecca Nazarene University.
