Why The Gulch?
The Gulch is located in downtown Nashville near the central business district, and is comprised of approximately 60 acres of land lying west of the CSX Railway, bordered by McGavock St. on the north, 8th Ave. on the east and I-65 on the west and south.
Minutes from downtown, midtown, Music Row, and Vanderbilt University, this location is particularly attractive for Sanctuary’s business in that The Gulch is the first neighborhood in the South to receive “LEED for Neighborhood Development” certification from the United States Green Building Council. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most recognized green certification program in the world.
The Gulch is now the 13th neighborhood internationally – including the Olympic Village in Beijing – to become certified in the LEED ND (LEED for Neighborhood Development) program. Until now, the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED certification was limited to individual building projects. In 2007, the USGBC launched LEED ND with the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Congress for the New Urbanism. Roughly 240 projects from 39 states and six countries competed for the certification, based upon the principles of smart growth, new urbanism and green building.
Sanctuary for Yoga Coming to The Gulch – One of the city’s most vibrant dining and entertainment districts, the neighborhood offers a constantly-growing range of retail and residential options. Every day, new residents are making their homes in Gulch loft apartments and condominiums, which offer sweeping Nashville skyline views.
