Ragland developing high-profile SoBro site

Michael Hayes' C.B. Ragland Co. is overhauling the former Music City Mix Factory at the corner of Korean Veterans and Second Avenue. The company gutted the 80-year-old building last fall and has now contracted with Wieck Construction to finish the renovation and add a penthouse floor.

Architect Manuel Zeitlin has redesigned the building into about 40,000 square feet of Class A office space. Construction is expected to take about four months and Ragland is shooting for LEED Gold certification.
