Ivan Downs is a traditional neighborhood development set within the southern portion of Bowling Green, Ky and convenient to downtown Nashville, TN.
Ivan Downs is a new home community with the spirit of the quintessential American hometown — exuding the front-porch-friendly, white picket fence charm of yesteryear with all of the thoughtful traditional neighborhood development planning of today.
Imagine, a truly walkable community where schools are connected to residences by a multi-use network of hiking trails that meander throughout Ivan Down’s property boundary and green-ways.

Ivan Downs is located in a growing part of Warren County. Children in the Ivan Downs Subdivision attend some of the newer schools in Warren County.
The building’s aesthetics were designed in an effort to blend the school into the Ivan Downs neighborhood. A dark brick facade was chosen to give it a traditional look with alternating classrooms “stepped out” to break up the appearance of a large building.
After opening its doors to students on August 3, 2010, South Warren Middle and High School has the distinction of being the largest school in Kentucky and the largest insulated concrete building in the nation.
Because of the unique architecture located within Ivan Downs, building and remodeling in our neighborhood is regulated by a unique set of restrictions and processes. Because of this, all remodeling and building permits must be reviewed by the Ivan Downs ARB before any new construction is approved.
Ivan Downs’ Neighborhood Association’s Architectural Review Board (ARB) is a standing committee of volunteer neighbors with expertise in our restrictions and procedures, who meet with and advise anyone seeking to remodel or build. The ARB also makes recommendations regarding any action on demolition, remodeling, and building issues.
Ivan Downs Neighborhood Association strongly encourages anyone considering a remodeling or building project to meet with the ARB as early as possible in the planning process. Please contact the ARB via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Application Email Us
