Apartment Shopping in Clarksville, TN

 

Clarksville, Tennessee, is located about 35 northwest of Nashville, south of the Kentucky border. Interstate 24 has four exits to access the state’s fifth largest city, and the Exit 4 area is the major retail corridor with a mall and various shopping centers located along Wilma Rudolph Boulevard, which pays tribute to the city’s Olympic gold medal-winning native.

Clarksville is growing rapidly with a current population of 133,000, which is a 28 percent increase since 2000. Along with Montgomery County and other surrounding counties, the Metropolitan Statistical Area population is just less than 275,000, which is an 18.8 increase since 2000. Growth in the community shows no signs of slowing; Clarksville and Montgomery County have a total of 8,776 residential lots approved for building.

Fort Campbell Army installation and a promising future in the renewable energy industry are key components to the city’s growth.

- Clarksville is Tennessee's Fifth Largest City

A key part of the city's growth and stability is Fort Campbell Army Base, which is only 10 miles from downtown. Technically, the base is known as Fort Campbell, Kentucky because the U.S. Post Office is on the Kentucky side of the Tennessee-Kentucky state line. However, most of the base is located in Tennessee.

Some 80 percent of Fort Campbell's active duty soldiers and their families live in Clarksville apartments, townhomes, condos or rental homes and the surrounding area boasts the second highest number of military retires in the nation. This military presence provides numerous advantages to the area, such as a youthful median age of only 29 and a highly skilled, trainable work force. Another key contributor to the city's diverse and solid economy is the promising future of the area's renewable energy industry. As county seat of Montgomery County, Clarksville continues to see remarkable growth, up over 29 percent since 2000.  One key indicator of anticipated growth has been the development of almost 9000 residential building lots in Clarksville and Montgomery County.

What Do You Need to Know About Clarksville, TN?

 

While it's not as well-known as Memphis and Nashville, Clarksville is one of Tennessee's largest cities. In fact, when you compare it to other cities around the country that have more than 50,000 people living in them, Clarksville is one of the fastest-growing cities in America!

So, what's this city actually like? What do you need to know if you're thinking about moving here?

 

- Clarksville has two distinct population groups

While there are certainly plenty of "normal" people who live here, Clarksville's population is a little different from most other cities. That's because there are two groups that make up a large percentage of the area's population -- the students at Austin Peay State University and the service members at Fort Campbell army base. (Technically, Fort Campbell doesn't sit inside the Clarksville city limits, but it's so close that it plays a big role in the city's population.)

 

The college students give Clarksville a younger feel than most other cities. In fact, the median resident age here is 28, which is much younger than Tennessee as a whole! However, there are enough non-students here that you won't feel like you're living in the middle of a frat party. This is not your typical "college town" by any means!

 

- There are plenty of places to learn

Austin Peay State University may be the biggest school in town, but it's certainly not the only one! People who live in Clarksville also take classes at Daymar Institute, Miller-Motte College, and North Central Institute. So, if you're interested in higher education, Clarksville will have all of the opportunities you could ever want!

 

- It's chock full of history

The city of Clarksville was first created back in 1784. As a result, there are plenty of historical gems around town that will take you back in time. In fact, the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center -- which sits in the middle of downtown -- is the second-largest general interest museum in all of Tennessee.

 

The city's original courthouse was built by James Adams back in 1796, and today, it's used as a county office building. Simply walking by it, though, will make you feel like you're back in Colonial days!

 

- Clarksville doesn't rest on its laurels

Sure, the people who live here are proud of their city's history, but that doesn't mean that they haven't embraced the future! Clarksville is home to several large healthcare facilities, including state-of-the-art hospitals, doctors' offices, and psychiatric facilities. Plus, the Downtown District is home to a number of boutiques, trendy eateries, and nightclubs that will make you feel like you're smack-dab in the middle of the 21st century! 

 

- Employment in the area

Austin Peay State University, with an enrollment of about 11,000, continues to add student housing and is anticipating more building even without state funding. The state did invest some $6 million to help construct the Hemlock Semiconductor Building for the university’s Chemical Engineering Technology Degree program. The new degree program supports Hemlock Semiconductor LLC’s new $1.2 billion plant, Tennessee’s single-largest industrial investment. The plant, produces semiconductors used in solar energy and computers, and is projected to provide 500 jobs. A $3 billion expansion could bring an additional 900 jobs.
