East Nashville News: St. Patty's Day in East Nash, Announcing the flats of Highland Heights, Food for a Cause, Music Venues Renovate and Relocate, + more

This week we reached a 65-degree high and then woke up to snow-covered streets. Though we're still in fits of icepocalypse, spring is around the corner which means it's time to begin thinking about those gardens and some of Nashville's many outdoor festivals. But perhaps more importantly, it's time to be grateful for this movement of seasons and like a changing season, remember our community needs support to continue its rhythm too. 

WELCOME HOME: ANNOUNCING THE FLATS OF HIGHLAND HEIGHTS  

With our community consistently growing here in East Nashville comes the need for more housing. The Highland House town homes will feature modern finishes and range from 2,000 to 2,200 square feet. Two and three bedroom units are available, all with attached garages. Prices begin in the low 300s. Located at 731 Douglas in East Nashville.
