Real estate notes: Mac Authority heads for 2525

Also: Ramsey invests in downtown

Technology retailer Mac Authority will open its third Nashville-area location in the 2525 West End building after the first of the year.

The company's director of marketing, Lucas Leverett, said it is shooting for a January back-to-school debut at the commercial space recently rejuvenated by the opening of Barnes & Nobles takeover of the former Borders space.

Mac Authority also has locations in Louisville and Chattanooga to go with its Lindell Avenue and Cool Springs stores in Middle Tennessee.

Dave Ramsey makes downtown investment

Financial guru, author and radio host Dave Ramsey paid $1.6 million for a four-story downtown office building on what was once the site of Andrew Jackson's law office at 333 Union.

Operating under the name Andy's Union LLC, Ramsey bought the building from GreenBank. It was most recently assessed for $2.6 million.
