Zillow survey names Nashville as #4 destination for new "digital nomad" workforce.

Page views to rental listings in the metro increased 18.6% compared to the same time last year, indicating continued demand to this popular destination.

A bit surprised Chattanooga didn't make the top 10 as it's become a huge magnet for WFH and we have our gig fiber optic digital network. We're certainly pulling from the Southeast. Maybe we haven't been discovered by the whole country yet.

I'm glad this is finally moving forward. That desolate, fenced off patch of dirt has been a real buzzkill the past couple of years. I wonder if they were able to land a grocery tenant, like the original plans called for.

It seems the new WFH phenomenon may not be as widespread as initially suspected? With such a major shift to remote workspaces during the pandemic, I thought we'd see less of these investments due to decreased demand in commercial real estate. Makes me wonder who will be filling the new office space. Some companies are consolidating campuses nationally and giving employees the option to permanently change their status. Evidently plenty of others still are not.

WFH always goes through phases. Employers let their workers WFH, eventually productivity and collaboration drops off, leading to employers calling back their employees.

South Walk development in Nolensville is now underway. The development will consist of a community ice rink, office space, and retail. The development is welcome by residents who either have to drive to Brentwood or Smyrna to go shopping.

I think we'll see a hybrid model emerge so that people spend 2-3 days in the office every week and 2-3 days WFH. WFH won't mean work from anywhere you will still need to be near your office but you will lose the commute a couple times a week.

Metro Council approved the plan at its regular meeting last night, 40-0. It'll be exciting to see this campus built.

Yeah, it's a beautiful campus. Such a significant investment for Oracle and their "vote of confidence" in the Nashville market overall.

I think Nashville will build on these recent tech investments, and they have continued to diversify an already impressive diverse economy.

Absolutely! I think this will definitely spur density on that side of the riverbank.

I'm eager to see how the Nissan Stadium area builds up density around it. I've read the owners are looking at a live/work/play scenario of dense high rises adjacent to and surrounding the stadium area.

I would think these ideas would mirror the recent new dense developments like The Battery and Truist Field in Atlanta, or Fenway Park in Boston and their dense developments currently and on the drawing board.

Very exciting to watch.
