E|Spaces announced Wednesday its Belle Meade facility is “sold out.”
Tenants in the space, located in The Hill Center at Belle Meade building home to, among many other, Publix, include bytes of knowledge (b:ok), NumberGarage.com, Populr.me and Smartvue.
“People today are looking for flexible solutions that meet their needs for a place to work and meet with colleagues and clients,” Phil Gibbs, E|Spaces CEO, said in a release. “ What they are not looking for is a five-year lease that locks them into something that may not meet their needs in six months.”
The company — which offers work and meeting spaces highlighted by high-end commons areas and flexible leases — targets individual entrepreneurs and small businesses. It launched in July 2010 with the opening of the Belle Meade center, and in February 2012 added a Cool Springs location. (Read more here.)
Local tech shop Atiba has partnered with E|Spaces to put on a series of educational sessions this fall at the Belle Meade and Cool Springs E|Spaces locations. The seminars are free but limited in size.
Events are complimentary, and will occur on either the first or second Tuesday of each month, from 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m., with the venue rotating between the two E|Spaces locations in Belle Meade and Cool Springs. The inaugural event will be held on Tuesday, September 18 at 5:30 p.m., at the Belle Meade E|Spaces location, where Rob Massie, Managing Director of Atiba Network Services, speaks on “The Cloud: What is it and how can it help me?” with Jerrod Barrows, also of Atiba Network Services.
The Nashville City Club and E|SPACES have begun marketing a program that lets each entity’s members join the other at discounted rates. The idea is to link up the traditional lunch and meeting areas of the City Club’s downtown spot with the Belle Meade and Cool Springs lounges and work spaces of E|Spaces.
Phil Gibbs, CEO of E|SPACES, noted that, “We are the new kid in town compared to the rich tradition of the City Club. This meets a real need for us by giving our members a downtown option. In addition to Cool Springs and West Nashville, they now can work and schedule meetings downtown while enjoying excellent food prepared by Chef Toby Willis. And the City Club has done a great job of solving the usual downtown parking problem.”
