Further evidence that Germantown is the center of Nashville's trend toward New Urbanism. Germantown Partners is taking the name of this development from 5th Avenue's original name. They also might be taking the great view of the Downtown skyline away from patrons of Germantown Cafe and giving it to the home owner and renters at Summer Street. We will see.
CORRECTION: Summer Street Lofts will actually be going in across 5th Ave. from Germantown Cafe, not across Madison, which means that they will not block the view of Downtown from the Cafe. Sorry for the confusion, but I noticed that they will be located at 1201 5th (the west side of the street).
