A group of Nashville investors led by real estate broker Rob Lowe has paid roughly $18 million for 40 condos at the Howell Park residential community in the Rutledge Hill area south of downtown.

“It is an exceptional site, but our plan is to hold the units as an investment,” Lowe said about the 1.85-acre property with addresses on Second Avenue South. “It’s hard to find value in today’s marketplace and that’s what attracted us to the deal.”

Under the Downtown Code, an up to 30 story building could be built on that 1.85-acre property. It is bordered by Korean Veterans Boulevard and Peabody Street and Second and Third Avenues South.

The Lowe-led Edgehill Village Investors LLC’s purchase, using some of the proceeds from selling a majority controlling interest in the Edgehill Village retail center in the Edgehill neighborhood, included all but two condo units at Howell Park.

Brentwood-based Haury & Smith Contractors Inc. built Howell Park in 1986 as one of the downtown area’s first residential projects and sold the units as condos.

Edgehill Village Investors purchased the condos at addresses including 405, 409, 411, 423, 425, 429, 433, 441, 471, 475 and 479 Second Avenue South from 38 individual sellers.
