Cottonwood Residential Purchases an Urban Landmark in Nashville, TN

The Melrose Apartments, a local landmark in the Nashville, TN area, is the third class-A acquisition by Cottonwood Residential this month. Built on the site of the 1940-era Melrose Movie Theater, this apartment community now incorporates the 7,400 square foot historic movie space into trendy homes, resident amenities, and the destination restaurant, Sinema.

“Melrose combines southern charm and contemporary style to create a true living and entertainment destination,” said Dan Shaeffer, CEO of Cottonwood Residential.

Residents can choose one or two bedroom homes in a variety of layouts. The homes feature granite countertops, up to twelve foot ceilings, and stained concrete or hardwood-style flooring. The community offers unique amenities like a movie screening lounge and a music performance space.

This is the fifth property Cottonwood owns and/or manages in Tennessee, and the fourth community in the greater Nashville area. To find out more about The Melrose or information about pricing and availability please visit
