12South (37204)

12South is the neighborhood district along 12th Ave S. and bordered by Wedgewood Ave and Gale Lane. In the late 1990’s, Metro Public Works began a multi-year, multi-million dollar streetscape improvement project intended to improve walkability and reduce traffic speeds. The neighborhood underwent both a residential and commercial revitalization.

12South has become a hub for local restaurants and retailers, and has successfully grown into a unique and charming neighborhood. Homes are a mix of historic 1920’s and 1930’s Bungalows and Foursquares with Craftsman influences. New construction homes are often historic replicas that fit in seamlessly with the surrounding architecture. 12South has many townhome and condo offerings as well.

Sevier Park sits on one end of the neighborhood and popular spots such as Frothy Monkey, Mafiaoza’s Pizzeria, 12South Taproom, Burger-Up and Trim Classic Barber line the commercial district.
