Flexible office provider Regus has inked a 17,472-square-foot lease at the Fifth Third Center.
Regus will move into the downtown tower in spring 2013. The lease on the 20th floor of the building represents the third location for Regus in the Nashville area. The others are on West End and in Cool Springs.
Sarah Pettigrew of the Nashville CBRE office and Mike Kay with the Dallas CBRE office represented Regus, while Tom Hooper and Bo Tyler of Jones Lang LaSalle represented the landlord, Amstar Group.
Midtown's Aloft Nashville Music Row — formerly Hotel Indigo — is getting an exterior paint job, with crews spotted late Monday afternoon transforming the once yellow and blue skin to a combination of mainly neutral and dark gray, with yellow and blue rectangles offering visual flourishes (seen in photo). The palette change comes after new signage was recently affixed to the building's exterior. In addition, the hotel will soon sport a WXYZ Bar. Aloft officials could not be reached for comment regarding the changes. Aloft Nashville Music Row is located in the 1700 block of West End Avenue.
Edley's Bar-B-Que owner Will Newman and fellow 12Souther Will Smallman recently opened the doors to The Filling Station, a carry-out shop for craft beer lovers. The new venture is taking up the space formerly held by Halcyon Bicycle and appears to have found very fertile ground with its more than 20 on-tap options of local and regional brews.
They ordered over 300 full-size growlers in preparation for their Saturday opening, but had already run out by Sunday. Fear not, thirsty friends, more are on the way and they have plenty of the small sizes left. In fact, Newman promised, "We'll fill up a milk jug if you bring one in."
