Nashville’s Newest High-Rise Luxury Apartments Now Leasing

December 09, 2021 / Nashville

Rising 29 stories in the Station District—between Downtown and The Gulch neighborhoods—Nashville’s newest high-rise luxury apartment building, 805 Lea, is now leasing for December 2021 move-ins. 805 Lea’s 356 residences offer 17 floorplans for studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments featuring exposed concrete, sleek lighting and designer fixtures, high-end custom kitchens, walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads, Nest Thermostats and more.

805 Lea is the first Tennessee development from Key Real Estate Company and its joint venture partners AMG Properties and Bollinger Enterprises. Key is a New Orleans-based real estate development, acquisition, redevelopment, asset and property management company with approximately 4,500 apartments and over 75,000 square feet of commercial space throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and now Tennessee.

“Our company is thrilled to finalize our first Tennessee apartment community in the heart of Music City,” said TJ Iarocci, Managing Principal and CEO for Key. “From the impeccable views of the skyline to the walking proximity to some of Nashville’s best restaurants, bars and museums, 805 Lea is the ideal place for people moving to town and existing residents looking for a change in their current living situations.”

In partnership with HASTINGS Architecture and Turner Construction, the 29-story residential tower draws inspiration from the site’s industrial past and the pulsing music of the city. The exterior paneling of the building was designed with morse code that dictates the lyrics to John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme,” paying homage to Music City. 805 Lea will also feature a variety of world-renowned artists, including artwork from Danny Jones, Claudia Faith, Heitor Magno, Javier Martin, and more.

“805 Lea is one of the most unique and exciting residences in the city. Unobstructed sweeping views, and custom interiors crafted with elevated simplicity and sophistication will foster community and connection in one of the most creative neighborhoods in Nashville. The dynamic façade is a beacon in the district and a distinctive addition to the skyline,” David A. Bailey, AIA, Principal for Hastings Architecture.

With floor-to-ceiling windows in every room, 805 Lea features modern living spaces with sophisticated perks, including an expansive seventh-floor amenity deck with a sparkling saltwater pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, ample entertaining spaces and the 29th floor Sky Lounge, offering unparalleled views of the city. The building is also lined with a variety of retail and restaurant spaces along Lea and Palmer avenues, to be announced.

From a pet spa and dog run to a yoga deck, 805 Lea was designed with its residents in mind, even offering a 24-hour concierge service to help residents become acquainted with the city and all that Nashville has to offer. The Sky Deck and Sky Lounge, located on 805 Lea’s 29th floor, will be used for hosting resident programming, such as happy hours, yoga sessions and more.

805 Lea is now accepting leases, and those interested in a property tour may make an appointment online. Lease applications are also available online at
